Pro Kabaddi 2017: U Mumba vs Haryana Steelers - As It Happened
News18.com | July 30, 2017, 9:07 PM IST
PREVIEW: The newest edition to the competition, Haryana Steelers will take on the formidable U Mumbai, as both teams start their campaign in the 2017 Pro Kabaddi League. For Haryana, captain Surender Nada and Mohit Chiller are expected to be key players. Both were integral to U Mumba's team in fact and became household names while playing for them. U Mumba will be looking to bounce back after their opening loss to Puneri Paltan.
Against the Paltan, the U Mumba defence looked shoddy although it played host to big names such as Hadi Oshtarak and Kuldeep Singh. Oshtarak, in particular, looked out of sorts and was substituted late into the first half while Kashiling Adake and Shabeer Bapu were not on top of their game.

The match is moving with a rather brisk pace, both teams still in it, though U Mumba have a 2-point advantage at this stage but this is not something that should worry the Steelers.
