Pro Kabaddi 2019, Match 97: Bengal Warriors vs Haryana Steelers - Predicting each team's playing 7
After a magnificent performance in front of the home fans, Maninder Singh's Bengal Warriors will return to the court in Match No. 97 of Pro Kabaddi 2019 where they will battle Haryana Steelers. The Haryana-based franchise has an unbeaten streak of 7 matches and it will try to ensure that the streak does not come to an end in Pune.
The two teams have met three times in PKL history with the Steelers emerging victorious on all three occasions. Thus, the Bengal Warriors will look to end that losing streak by handing Dharmaraj Cheralathan and Co. their first loss in eight matches.
A win for the Steelers will power them to the 2nd position on the points table whereas if Bengal Warriors win this contest, they will consolidate their grip over the 2nd spot.
On that note, let us have a look at the predicted starting 7 of the two teams in this contest -
