#2 Vinay - 7/10
Matches - 4, Raid Points - 25, Average Raid Points/Match - 6.25
The only Haryana Steelers raider who troubled the defence of U.P. Yoddha on the opening night of the Panchkula leg was Vinay. Despite being one of the youngest players of the team, the raider scored 8 touch points against a defence consisting of Nitesh Kumar and Sumit.
Though he could not carry on his form in the later matches, Vinay supported Vikash Kandola and Prashanth Kumar Rai to perfection. His average of 6.25 raid points per match is superb given that he plays as the third raider of the team.
#3 Vikash Kandola - 8/10
Matches - 4, Raid Points - 34, Average Raid Points/Match - 8.50
The vice-captain of Haryana Steelers, Vikash Kandola failed to live up to his fans' expectations in the games against Bengaluru Bulls and U.P. Yoddha. Although he scored Super 10s in the other two matches, the home fans must have expected Kandola to come out all guns blazing versus the Bulls and the Yoddhas as well. Also, the raider was tackled on 8 occasions in those two fixtures.
However, since his two Super 10s helped the Steelers win the other two games, the team management would not be worried about Kandola's form.Published 09 Oct 2019, 14:40 IST
