The team from Delhi came up with a 26-23 win to snap the Pirates’ seven-match winning run to make it through to the second round of the competition.
Earlier, the UP Yoddha managed to pull off a 35-28 win over U Mumba to hand the Mumbai team its third consecutive loss, leaving them out of playoff contention. The Yoddhas however, are the third team so far to qualify for the knockouts. Three more places are still up for grabs.
Pawan rescues Bulls
