Dilli Veer go into their second game of the Pro Wrestling League 2015 on Tuesday when they face UP Warriors at the Guru Nanak Stadium in Ludhiana.
The first-of-its-kind amateur wrestling tournament in India has not gone too well for the UP Warriors so far. Sushil Kumar was drafted to the PWL franchisee as an "icon" player prior to the start of the league, but the star wrestler's withdrawal from the tournament has hit their morale.
Team Uttar Pradesh suffered two back-to-back losses, and they know they have to do something at the earliest, or their chances of making it to the last four will be over. Team Delhi also lost their debut match in the competition this year, against Haryana Hammers.
Both teams will now be looking to get off the mark today.
The Delhi side boast of stars in the form of captain Vinesh Phogat (Women's 48kg), World Championship silver-medallist Navruzov Ikhtiyor (Men's 65kg), World Championship bronze medallist Yesilirmak Elif Jale and Gurpal Singh.
World Championship silver-medallist Purevjav Unurbat (Men's 74kg), roped in as Sushil's replacement, is the biggest name in the UP Warriors roster. UP Warriors also have Babita Kumari (Women's 53kg) and Satyavrat Kadian (Men's 97kg).

Dilli Veer vs UP Warriors is scheduled for a 7 pm IST start.
