FULL-TIME: Jaipur Pink Panthers win 40 - 38 over the Haryana Steelers. 

Arjun Deshwal the star of the show for Jaipur with 18 points to his name, while skipper Deepak Hooda too found some form, notching up his first Super 10 of this season after a poor outing last time. 

For Haryana, skipper Vikash Kandola registered 14 points but didn't have much company to complement him, with Rohit Gulia scoring just 7 points as the second-highest scorer for them. However, Jaideep's High 5 was a massive positive for the Steelers, with the youngster combining well with Kuldeep to score a bulk of the tackle points.

As we wait for the Puneri Paltan v Telugu Titans match to end, here's a way to warm up to the upcoming clash! πŸ‘†
Hello folks, and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of Match 12 of Pro Kabaddi 2021, between the Jaipur Pink Panthers and Haryana Steelers!

Both the teams will be eager to pick up their first win of the season, with the Panthers and Steelers ending up on the losing side of their respective clashes. Jaipur lost 27-34 to the Gujarat Giants, while the Steelers failed to get across the line in a tense clash against the Patna Pirates which they lost 39-42.

Deepak Hooda's poor show was one of the talking points in Jaipur's season opener, with the all-rounder scoring just 4 points. Against a relatively inexperienced defensive unit, Hooda will be keen to bounce back into form. For the Steelers, Rohit Gulia impressed with a Super 10, and his partnership with skipper Vikash Kandola will be the fulcrum around which the team could operate.
