Haryana Hammers outclassed Delhi Sultans by 5-2 on Friday to continue their winning run in Pro wrestling season 3 being held at Delhi’s Siri Fort Sports Complex. While Hammers are yet to lose a game in the tournament, Sultans have lost both their matches so far. Star attraction Sushil Kumar who was blocked in the last match, could not play today as well due to an injury. His ouster from the game must have certainly affected the team’s morale as they gave in quite easily.
In the last game, Haryana Hammers had beaten Veer Marathas by a margin of 5-2 to start their campaign on a splendid note. On the other hand, Delhi Sultans had suffered a defeat in the last match as well at the hands of Mumbai Maharathi who won by 5-2 in the opening encounter. In the match, Sushil Kumar was blocked by Mumbai who had won the toss. In the next encounter, UP Dangal will battle ot out with Mumbai Maharathi on Saturday.
