And that was it! Thanks for tuning into this coverage with me, Saikrishna MD. Lots more Kabaddi action is coming up over the course of this week. Until then, adios!
FULL TIME! Haryana Steelers 29 - 27 Bengaluru Bulls

It was a defensive showdown that went down to the wire, and the Haryana Steelers held onto their lead against the team that is known for their comeback tales. The Steelers have to thank their defensive combo of Bastami and Jaideep, who helped them keep Bharat and Vikash at bay for the majority of this game. Meetu Sharma showed resilience in attack and was probably the only raider who had figured out the plan well. In the end, the Haryana Steelers found a win and they got those important five points, while the Bengaluru Bulls had to settle for just a point from this game.

HALF TIME! Haryana Steelers 13 - 10 Bengaluru Bulls

It's just 3 points that differentiate these two teams. And while this game appears to be low-scoring, the second half could be when the teams rethink their strategies and decide to go for it all.

Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda’s coverage of the PKL season 9. We are witnessing a cracker of a contest in today’s first match of the doubleheader. You can expect the second one to be as enthralling as it can get. The Haryana Steelers, who were involved in a tie-match against Puneri Paltan, will go up against the table-toppers Bengaluru Bulls, who made yet another comeback and registered a win over Jaipur Pink Panthers in their previous match.

The Steelers will meet a familiar face in the form of Vikash Kandola, who is now a raging bull of Bengaluru. Both teams have immense quality and top-class talents that can make this game an exciting 40-minute fiesta. Meetu and Manjeet will be the raiding duo that will be looking to breach that formidable Bengaluru Bulls’ defence led by Mahender Singh and Saurabh Nandal. From the men in red’s perspective, they have the firepower in both attack and defence. Bharat Hooda is currently racing towards Naveen Kumar on the pathway to becoming the leading raider of PKL 9.

This could be an interesting match-up. Let’s find out who can bring their A-game tonight and take home those points. Taking you through all the live action will be me, Saikrishna MD. Get some snacks, find your spot to chill and enjoy the coverage.

Stay tuned for the Toss Update and Teams! See you in a bit with more updates.
