After defeating Tamil Thalaivas 42-29 on Monday, the Haryana Steelers won their sixth game in the Pro Kabaddi League 2023. The Thalaivas have still not won at home in this edition of the Pro Kabaddi League 2023.
The opening ten minutes saw consecutive raid points from both teams. Though Vijay’s huge 5-point raid put Haryana ahead, the Thalaivas maintained things close. Jaideep and Vinay led Haryana in scoring after doing the most damage. The Steelers dominated the last 20 minutes and gave nothing in the second half.
With players like Jaideep Dahiya and Rahul Sethpal regularly scoring points, the defence was nothing short of spectacular. With five points, Vinay was their most effective raider. Sahil Gulia concluded with ten points in favour of Tamil Thaliavas, but aside from that, not much was good to report.
In Pro Kabaddi 2023, Dabang Delhi picked up their third victory of the year. They were able to defeat Bengal Warriors 38-29 in the second match of the evening. Within the opening five minutes, Delhi launched an all-out assault on the Bengal Warriors, establishing a commanding lead in the game.
Captain Naveen entered the side and had an instant effect. He was a consistent scorer as he got raid points for fun. Meanwhile, Ashish, the left corner, played well in defence. Only during the first half did he achieve a High 5.
Although Maninder Singh succeeded in scoring six points during the first half, the defenders did not provide much assistance. Although Shubham Shinde scored three points inside the opening twenty minutes, the defence was largely ineffective against Naveen.
Delhi began the first half with a 10-point advantage, the score being 30–20. During the second half, Bengal Warriors made many attempts to rally, but Delhi maintained pulling ahead.
The defenders made sure they did not get all out by continuously putting in super-tackles. In the second half, Maninder Singh was not permitted to score any points.
