Delhi Divas bt Kochi Stars 15-7 in Round 1 Women’s Final

Braving the strong afternoon sun, Delhi Divas led from start to finish against Kochi Stars to be crowned Round 1 champions.

It was a terrific revenge win for the Divas, who had lost to defending champions Kochi in the early pool stages in a tight overtime game.

Despite an ankle injury suffered by Tavleen Bhandal, Delhi maintained their momentum to continue to increase their lead. Delhi’s defense was particularly excellent against Kochi, limiting them to just 7 points.

The divas were served by the inspiring play of captain Raspreet Sidhu, who was also a star player for the Indian women’s national team.

For her consistent performances throughout the day, Sidhu was named Most Valuable Player (MVP) for the first round.

“It’s amazing that we come here after two years. I think we can give a huge turn
