That will be all from your host Abhishek as we bid adieu from the team of Sportskeeda. Two draws and one Haryana Steelers win is the story of Day 2. But don't go anywhere as we will be ready to entertain you on Day 3 tomorrow. 
Bengal Warriors 33-41 Haryana Steelers

Not exactly the kind of start Bengal Warriors would have wanted as they suffer an eight-point defeat to Haryana Steelers. The first half was even steven with Haryana ahead for the larger part of the game. However, it was Bengal Warriors who went into the break with a slim one-point lead courtesy of Girish Ernak's six tackle points. 

Nitin Rawal won a couple of 'Super Tackle' for his sides to ensure Haryana stays in the contest. After Bengal inflicted an All Out, they were hardly able to surge forward as Haryana's defense plugged the gaps while Manjeet picked points while going forward. Manjeet finished with the highest number of raid points as he collected 19 points from his 21 raids. 

Maninder Singh was just seven points away from completing 1000 raid points in PKL history. He did achieve that landmark but found himself on the losing side of the contest. The only shining light for Bengal is the performance of substitute Manoj Gowda as he picked up 8 raidpoints from 9 raids. 
30' Manoj Gowda wins a bonus and a touchpoint but that won't be fruitful as the referee blows his full-time whistle.

Bengal Warriors 13-15 Haryana Steelers 

Haryana entered the game by doing their homework on Maninder Singh and they have done exceedingly well in that department as 'Mighty Mani' has been able to pick up only one point. It is Manoj Gowda, on the contrary, who has returned with two raid points while their defense have scored the bulk of the points. Girish Maruti Ernak completed the first 'High 5' of this season and he got it done in just 11 minutes. With six tackle points to his name, Haryana need to come up with plan to escape his ankle holds.  

Manjeet Dahiya has made the most of his height to come up with five points in the first half. However, he has lacked support from the rest of the raiders. The defense have hunted in packs as all of their starting seven players have opened their account barring their captain Joginder Narwal. 

Can Haryana turn things around in the second half or Bengal maintain their supremacy? Don't go anywhere as action resumes soon.

Toss Update: Haryana Steelers won the toss and the first raid will be made by Bengal Warriors. 
Maninder Singh is just 7 raid points away from completing 1000 raid points in PKL. Can he etch his name in the history books? Let's find out. 
The previous match between Tamil Thalaivas and Gujarat Giants is still going on. Hence, we will have a delayed start to the much-awaited Match 6. 

Bengal Warriors: Maninder Singh, Girish Ernak, Deepak Niwas Hooda, Shrikant Jadhav, Ashish Kumar, Shubham Shinde, Balaji D

Haryana Steelers: Joginder Singh Narwal, Manjeet, Nitin Rawal, Meetu Mhahender, Jaideep Kuldeep, Mohit, Monu
Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda for the live coverage of Match 6 of PKL 2022-23 season as Bengal Warriors lock horns with Haryana Steelers at the Shree Kanteerava Indoor Stadium in Bengaluru. This is your host Abhishek, and I will be your eyes and ears for the contest. 

Bengal Warriors will be banking on the raiding prowess of Maninder Singh once again in this match. While in the last season, he was left all alone, this time he will have the likes of Deepak Hooda and Ajinkya Kapre to support him. Defensively, Girish Ernak and Shubham Shinde will have a lot riding on them as they were bought by the team in the auction. 

Haryana Steelers will be missing the likes of Mohammed Esmaeil Maghsoudlou and Amirhossein Bastemi as Iranian players haven't reached India yet. Led by Joginder Narwal in the defense, he will be aided by Jaideep Dahiya and Mohit Nandal. In the raiding department, they have the likes of Manjeet Dahiya and K Prapanjan whom the franchise roped from Tamil Thalaivas. To go further deep, they have veteran Rakesh Narwal on their side who will be gearing up to face his former side from their title-winning season. 

Sit back and relax as live action resumes from 09:30 PM IST.
