BEN-W vs HAR-S: It is showtime in the Pro Kabaddi League, as the teams ranked 2nd and 3rd battle it out in match 97. The Bengal Warriors have had an impressive previous match, after winning the game 42-40 against the Bengaluru Bulls. The win was more special to them as it came in their home venue. Haryana Steelers, on the other hand, have been spectacular too, after a streak of 7-wins in their last 7 matches. With both the teams looking super strong and confident, it is certainly going to be a battle to watch out for.
THE JOURNEY SO FAR…
Maninder Singh-led Bengal Warriors have had a great tournament so far, after placing themselves 2nd in the team standings. The team has performed from all fronts, right from raiding to defending. With 9 wins in the 16 matches played, the team looks set to reach the finals this time around. Staying unbeaten in their home leg of the tournament, they will put in all to start their campaign with a win in the Pune-leg. However, there is still a long way to go for them. The warriors also face stiff competition from teams ranked just below them. With Haryana Steelers and Bengaluru Bulls already giving their best to dethrone them from the second spot, it remains to be seen if Bengal Warriors can retain their position and grow up the ladder.
Haryana Steelers are currently placed third in the team standings, despite having 1 win more than the Bengal Warriors. In fact, they have also played 1 match less than the Warriors, and a win in this match could certainly take them up the ladder. The team is coming after magnificent 7-straight victories. With such a spectacular momentum, the team will be hopeful of continuing the form and adding another win to their tally. However, Cheralathan & co. will be looking to put brakes to their momentum and break the winning streak.
Well, with both the teams looking super strong and formidable, it will be interesting to see who will eventually get the better off the other team and seize the moment for themselves.

TEAM NEWS: BENGAL WARRIORS
All eyes will yet again be on Maninder Singh, who has been in an exceptional form lately. The Punjab-raider will take the onus upon himself to deliver it for his team yet again against a super-strong Haryana Steelers. He accounted for 17-raid points in the previous match against Bengaluru Bulls. The captain is certainly leading from the front and is ensuring that the teams sail over the victory line most of the times.
With 138-raid points, he is the 4th best raider in this season. He also gets good support from Prapanjan and Esmaeil Nabibakhsh, who contributed for 87 points and 62 points respectively. While the defence is handled by Baldev Singh with 44 tackle points and Rinku Narwal with 42 tackle points. Even the presence of Jeeva Kumar has helped the team, with his contribution of 26 tackle points from 15 games.
HARYANA STEELERS STARTING 7:
Vikash Kandola (R), Naveen (R), Selvamani (R), Sunil (D), Dharmaraj Cheralathan (D), Ashish Sangwan (D), Vikas Kale (D).
TEAM NEWS: HARYANA STEELERS
Haryana Steelers are currently in the form of their life, with 7 consecutive victories. Their recent victory came off against the Tamil Thalaivas, who are currently placed at the bottom of the table. However, this match is different, as the opponents are also in a tremendous form and also ranked above them.
Coach Rakesh Kumar shall be shrewd enough to pick the right starting 7 for the team. Well, every team who plays against Haryana Steelers fears Vikash Kandola when he comes on to raid. He has been in his top form with 116 raid points in just 12 games. He is followed by Vinay with 63 points and Naveen with 51 points. Their defence also looks to have regained their strength with captain Cheralathan leading it from the front.
The prediction is in favour of Haryana Steelers
