The Bulls have survived quite a scare here as the Steelers threatened to pull off a magical comeback for the ages and get the better of them. They have just managed to keep the Haryana-based franchise at bay and have picked up a three-point win here. Well, the Steelers have only themselves to blame. Perhaps they left the comeback for a time when there wasn't much time left on the clock. Meetu did the bulk of the scoring yet again and one can only wonder why he missed the first thirteen minutes of the contest on the substitutes bench.

Well, the Steelers have absolutely been blown away here! They have no idea what has hit them and the answer is a raging Bulls unit.

The defense has just two points as compared to the Bulls' ten. They will need something magical from here on to make a comeback.

Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of the Pro Kabaddi League 2022 where Match 68 will witness the Bengaluru Bulls locking horns with the Haryana Steelers at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex, Pune. 

This will be the second time that the two sides will be squaring off against each other, with the first one not played too long ago. On November 1, it was a fiery Haryana Steelers side that came out all guns blazing in the reverse-fixture and managed to hold off the patented Bulls comeback to secure a two-point win, ending the Bulls' five-match unbeaten streak in the process. 

The Bulls are placed third in the points table with six wins to their name from eleven encounters and a win here will take them back to the top of the table, a position they certainly seem to enjoy being at. The onus will be on Bharat and Vikash Kandola once again in the raiding scheme of things while the defense will be expected to continue its good work and rake in the points at will. They will be a little wary of this opponent and especially Meetu Sharma, who was the main culprit behind their defeat in the previous game. 

The Steelers, on the other hand, find themselves eleventh in the points table with four wins. A victory here will do them a world of good as not only will it boost their confidence but also see them break into the top six of the points table. Manjeet, who has not been as consistent as he would have liked, will be looking to score big while Amirhossein Bastami, who had previously gotten a high-five against the Bulls, would like to replicate his performances from the previous game. 

Right then, we are in for a cracker of a contest and it promises to be one that goes right down the wire, just like how Bulls' games generally do. Sit back, relax and enjoy as I, Maanas Upadhyay, take you through all that unfolds over the course of this contest!
