The Pro Kabaddi League 10 never fails to disappoint, as the game 66 also turned out to be a rather thrilling contest. In the concluding match of PKL Season 10’s leg at the DOME by NSCI on Wednesday, U Mumba and Haryana Steelers engaged in a thrilling and entertaining 44-44 tie. Jaideep Dahiya’s exceptional defensive skills earned him 8 tackle points, but the standout performer was Amirmohammad Zafardanesh. Almost single-handedly, he secured a well-deserved tie for his team with an impressive haul of 14 raid points.

The sixth-placed Haryana Steelers began the game with an explosive start, swiftly diminishing the number of U Mumba players on the mat within minutes. The dominance extended beyond raiding, with Jaideep Dahiya showcasing an imperious defensive performance, accumulating an impressive 4 raid points in the first half alone, contributing to more than half of the Haryana Steelers’ total for that fascinating phase of play.

Haryana Steelers inflicted the first All-Out of the game in the seventh minute, establishing an 11-6 lead, which appeared challenging for the home side. However, in the subsequent quarter of the game, U Mumba’s team exhibited resilience. The Iranian raiding sensation Zafardanesh’s consistent ability to secure bonus points and Siddharth Desai’s Super raid towards the end of the half brought them within three points, concluding the first half on a more positive note.

It required nine minutes into the half, but eventually, they executed an All-Out, eliminating the nine-point deficit and equalizing the score at 30 apiece.

The momentum swiftly shifted as the Haryana Steelers’ defense remained resilient, securing a second All-Out to establish a five-point lead.
