Delhi Waveriders stunned defending champions Ranchi Rays 7-4 in a hard-fought battle in the 4th Coal India Hockey India League.

The hosts, who won their first home match after losing four consecutive games, reignited their hopes of getting a berth in the play-offs to be played at Ranchi on February 20 and 21. 

An excellent forward line along with some critical and scintillating saves from Devon Manchester ensured the Waveriders managed a convincing victory over table toppers Ranchi Rays. 

With this win Delhi Waveriders move to the fifth place in the table with 22 points to their kitty from nine games. 

Ranchi Rays still lead the points tally with 27 points.
