Dubai, the Emirati patron Rashid Albwardy and Adolfo Cambiaso’s squad, the best player in the world, defeated Lechuza Caracas by 8-5 and remains undefeated in the Casa de Campo Silver Cup played today in the third day at the Los Pinos fields, the principal location of the INDI International Polo Tournament.
The team, also formed by the Uruguayans Santiago Stirling and Alejo Taranco, repeated the great performance proved on their debut. In the first half of the game we could see the team playing at its highest level, giving their rivals a 5 goal margin, that was maintained until the 5th chukker.
Despite Lechuza’s efforts in the sixth chukker, specially when they tried to get back on track, Dubai was always the leader. They have won twice in a row and the team is, once again, the favorite one to win the title they are already defending.
Dubai: 4-1/ 5-1/ 6-1/ 8-3/ 8-3/ 8-5
