FULL TIME! Tamil Thalaivas 22-27 Haryana Steelers

Just eight raid points for the Thalaivas over the course of this fixture and that speaks volumes about how the game went for them. Granted that it was a game where both sides relied on their defense to get the points but a better showing in the raiding department could have certainly helped the Thalaivas snap up a win here. However, credit where it is due. Manjeet stole the show yet again while Jaideep got in a High 5. The corners could not perform for the Steelers but the covers and the raiders made up for it. Nitin Rawal was tasked with playing the left corner and he played his part to perfection. As for the Thalaivas, skipper Sagar's High 5 went in vain. It was only the defense that got in the points and perhaps they could have employed some of their substitutes there. The Steelers getting their second win on the trot and will certainly be pleased with this result!
40' Do-or-die raid for the Thalaivas and Jaideep attempts an advance tackle. A frontal hold almost and Visvanath V is alert enough to turn, tumble and cross the mid-line. 
40' Do-or-die raid for the Steelers and Meetu runs down the clock before attempting to pick up a point. A back hold by Sagar and the rest of the defenders pile onto the raider. Well, Sagar's left heel went into the lobby before he went in for the tackle and one point is granted to the Steelers instead. 
37' Do-or-die raid for the Thalaivas now and Visvanath V has been sent in for it. He attempted a bonus point and Jaideep came in for the dash. Used the lobby to great effect as he crossed the mid-line. The bonus is initially granted and then the umpires have amended their decision to only a single touch point. 

However, the Thalaivas review! 
Visvanath V's foot was cutting the bonus line and there was clearly no bonus there. The on-field decision remains. Review unsuccessful! 
36' Do-or-die raid for the Steelers and Meetu strikes! Ajinkya Pawar attempts a surprise ankle hold on the raider, who escapes to his half with ease.

30' Oh unbelievable! Manjeet went deep into the left corner and Sagar runs around, grapples him, gets a good grip on his waist and turns him around while doing a wrestling move that finishes with both men on the ground, with Sagar under Manjeet while having gotten a strong hold on his back. Whew! And it is a SUPER TACKLE!

HALF TIME! Tamil Thalaivas 10-15 Haryana Steelers

The Thalaivas held the lead for the majority of the half, forcing the Steelers to amend their attacking strategy to play on the do-or-die raid. For a substantial part of the half, both sides were getting in only tackle points when the opposing team was putting in do-or-die raids. However, Manjeet broke the series following which the Steelers inflicted the all-out to assume lead, quite a decent one too. Both sides relying on their defense to do the scoring and the defenders are up for it as well! Manjeet stealing the show for the Steelers while there have been multiple contributors for the Thalaivas. An exciting second half awaits us. Who will emerge on top? Stick around to find out!

Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of the Pro Kabaddi League, 2022. The twelfth match of the tournament will pit the Haryana Steelers up against the Tamil Thalaivas at the Shree Kanteerava Indoor Stadium, Bengaluru. 

The Haryana Steelers got off to a winning start in their opening encounter against the Bengal Warriors. It was a comprehensive and clinical showing by the Steelers riding on the back of Manjeet's dream run in the contest. Manjeet's rampage saw him single-handedly win the game for his side, snaring 19 points in the contest. Nitin Rawal also made contributions in both departments while the defenders got points too. However, the Steelers should look to manage the workload of Manjeet, who will be their main asset going forward in this tournament. 

The Tamil Thalaivas, on the other hand, started off with a tied contest against the Gujarat Giants. Pawan Sehrawat is still under medical observation after having a freak injury while defending. In his absence, the Thalaivas will be hoping that Narender can replicate his performance from their previous game, where he picked up a Super 10. Himanshu was another raider who shone in the Thalaivas colours. Their defense looked pretty solid as well apart from Sagar, who failed to get any points. The Thalaivas will certainly be hoping that he finds form in this game. 

We are in for what promises to be a cracker of a contest! Sit back, relax and enjoy as I, Maanas Upadhyay, take you through all that unfolds over the course of this contest!
