What an epic victory for Haryana Steelers! They have stole the show in the dying moments to snatch this victory and Vikas Kandola has been the big man with 11 raid points as he took out Saurabh Nandal and Mohit Sehrawat in the last raid of the match to give Haryana a victory by not just a point but three. Haryana have stormed back and how!
Haryana Steelers stole the show towards the end by condemning Pawan Sehrawat and Rohit Kumar to the bench towards the end and then playing tactically a brilliant game to beat Bengaluru. Vikas Kandola was the man in form for Haryana as he picked up 11 raid points, including two in the last raid of the match. Pawan Sehrawat raided and tackled with equal intensity but could not take his team to victory.
Vikas Kandola goes for a do-or-die raid for Haryana and Amit Sheoran makes a mistake and Haryana gain a two-point lead.
Next raid, Mohit Sehrawat goes for a Bengaluru do-or-die raid and gets a touch point against Kuldeep Singh and revives Pawan Sehrawat. Pawan's revival was crucial for Bengaluru but Haryana still have a slender advantage.
Bengaluru Bulls 28-29 Haryana Steelers
Naveen gets an unsuccessful raid but Rohit Kumar also moves out of the lobby along with him and both teams get a point each. Bengaluru review but lose it.
Next raid, Sumit Singh goes for a raid for Bengaluru and Vikas Kale tackles him down. Haryana get the edge.

It is Pawan Sehrawat vs Naveen as Bengaluru Bulls take on Haryana Steelers. While Pawan has had an upperhand so far, it is still going to be an interesting raiding clash between the two raiders.
