FT: Haryana Steelers 39-39 Telugu Titans

A terrific game that came down to the last raid, with Vikash Kandola only needing to cross the baulk line. That was going to be easier said than done though, with an inspired Titans defensive unit playing high up the baulk line to eventually tackle down the Steelers skipper very close to the mid-line. A fitting end to a thrilling game, but the Titans will be the happier team of the two, having made mini comebacks right through the game. 
40' We have a tie! Vikash Kandola looks for a hand touch but he's snapped up by Sandeep Kandola and Ankit Beniwal ahead of the baulk line! What drama! Sandeep was only a feet and a half from the mid-line, but a terrific effort from the left corner to pick up the all-important point.
40' Adarsh T puts in a raid and gets a touch within 3 seconds!

HT: Haryana Steelers lead 20-19 over the Telugu Titans. 

A terrific comeback from the Titans late in the second half to bring down the deficit to just one point. At one stage, it seemed like the Steelers were running away with the game, but a combination from the raiders and defenders has kept Rohit Kumar's side in the game.

Hello folks, and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of Match 77 of Pro Kabaddi 2022, between the Haryana Steelers and Telugu Titans!

For those averse to recent developments, the "one that should not be named" virus has made its way into the Pro Kabaddi bubble as well, with players from two of the 12 PKL teams reportedly testing positive and forcing wholesale changes in the schedule. For the next 4 days - including today - we will have only one game in the evening, which makes it that much more important for the two teams contesting to put in their best foot forward. 

With matches being shifted around, teams might not have enough to pick from as we head towards the business end of the competition. Today's match, in some sense, would mean that and a lot more for the Telugu Titans, who have made a habit of handing away 5 easy points to their opponents throughout this season. 

From 13, the Titans have just the one win to show for, and they're chances of making the last six are dying down by every loss. Their opponents today, the Haryana Steelers are on a high with a hat-trick of wins to their credit, and taking down Vikash Kandola's side will undoubtedly be a tricky prospect for the Titans.  

That though, does not mean the Titans don't have it in them to cause an upset. With a lot on stake, we're expecting a good clash on the cards, and I, Prasen Moudgal, am exciting to bring you all the live action today!
