Dabang Delhi came back from the dead to eke out a nerve-wracking 32-32 draw against runners up Gujarat Fortunegiants on the third day of the Pro Kabaddi tournament at the packed Jawaharlal Nehru Indoor Stadium here on Tuesday. Trailing 12-17 at halftime, Delhi rode substitute Chandran Ranjit’s 10 points to forge a comeback with Naveen Kumar also contributing (five points). For Gujarat, Sachin (seven points), Rohit Gulia (five points), K. Prapanjan (four points) and Ruturaj Koravi (four points) did well but in the end failed to edge past their dogged opponents.
