On day 13 of Pro Wrestling League Season 3, Veer Marathas outclassed Delhi Sultans by 5-2 to keep hopes of making it to semifinal alive. Marathas dominated the game throughout not handing many chances to Delhi, who were in hunt of their first win of the season. They will now be looking forward to Mumbai Maharathi’s performance against Punjab Royals on Monday as it will decide their fate in the league. Actor Dino Morea was the star attraction of the match as he made his presence felt in the stadium and cheered for Marathas.
On the other hand, Delhi ended their disappointing campaign in the league winless. Despite having a star-studded line-up, Delhi could not do justice to their talent and lost all five matches. Sultans had their hopes pinned on Olympic medal-winning wrestler, Sushil Kumar who could not make it to mat even in a single game due to injury and blocking. The final of PWL season 3 will take place on January 27 at Siri Fort Sports Complex.
