The waveriders will start with the confidence of winning (2-1) their earlier tie after surviving Penalty Stroke in last minute on which Sandeep Singh found both vertical bars of post and missed it, on 16th January in Delhi.

Even though after being held by Wizards, Waveriders went to the top of the points table at the end of their game against them. Waveriders team management will be worried about the failure to convert chances into goals which would have fetched them better results, though the Delhi outfit have been good outings on the turf and are unbeaten in their first three outings including a draw.

In this evening game, Magicians would play for the first time at home this season. Warriors have had a horrendous start to their campaign, losing three games on the trot. Magicians’ start to the event hasn’t been any better, losing both their games so far, including the loss to Ranchi Rhinos on Friday evening.

For both the teams, Sunday’s game is as much a challenge mentally, as it is physically. Keeping their morale high despite having suffered a poor start is something that both the team managements would be trying to do. Mumbai Magicians were outplayed by a spirited Ranchi Rhinos team on Friday evening, and Magicians would need to recover quickly from that loss. They opted to sit back and weather the storm on Friday, and paid a heavy price for it, as Rhinos had already scored three goals by the end of the second quarter. Continue reading →
