Runners up of the Indian Masters Polo 2017

Delhiites Polo started the fall polo season in Delhi on a promising note by lifting the 4 goal Out of Hat Cup in early October. The polo team, headed by the legendary polo player Samir Suhag started the prestigious Bhopal-Pataudi Cup with a bang by thrashing their opponents in the league matches by big margins and qualifying for the semi finals where they clashed with Rajnigandha Achievers and crashed out of the tournament in what turned out to be a close contest. The Field Marshall Cariappa Cup followed next by Delhiites making it to the finals but losing the cup by a whisker in the dying minutes of the match and this started their row of ‘Runners Up’.
