Here's an interesting stat!

The Haryana Steelers and Tamil Thalaivas have played each other trice and all three games have ended in a tie. 
Starting 7s- 

Tamil Thalaivas: 
Ajay Thakur (c), Rahul Chaudhari, Shabeer Bappu, Manjeet Chhillar, Mohit Chhillar, Ran Singh, Ajeet. 

Haryana Steelers: Dharmaraj Cheralathan (c), Vikas Kandola, Naveen, Sunil, Parveen, Vikas Kale, Vinay.
Rahul Chaudhari has fizzled out post his Super 10 from the first game and will hope to regain his lost form. However, Manjeet Chhillar has led the way from the front with 15 tackle points and two High 5s from three games and will hold the key for the Thalaivas. 

The Steelers, on the other hand, have been boosted by a top show from Naveen, who has 24 points and he will be the 'X-factor' for the Steelers in this game. 

Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of Match 25 between the Haryana Steelers and Tamil Thalaivas!

The Thalaivas started the season with a dominating 39-26 win over the Haryana Steelers but have lost two games since their opening fixture win. They fell to an agonizing one-point loss to Dabang Delhi and the Patna Pirates as well. 

The Steelers have taken the same path as they are coming into this game on the back of two losses in a row. However, the margin of losses were quite big and the Dharmaraj Cheralathan-led side will look to put up a good show and bring life back into their faltering campaign.
