Tamil Thalaivas 45-26 Haryana Steelers

A dominant show from the Thalaivas and they complete what has been an absolute thrashing. A 19-point win as they rise above U Mumba in the points table and it is courtesy of their defence. Sagar was in the limelight with 7 tackle points to his name but it was skipper Surjeet Singh who stole the show with 8 tackle points. Manjeet scored a Super 10 in the raiding department wand was ably supported by K Prapanjan. 

As for the Steelers, they had no answers to the Thalaivas' defence. The Haryana loses their three-match unbeaten streak and after a loss of this magnitude, will certainly need to pick themselves up before their next contest. The defence was out of touch while Vikash Kandola received no support in the raiding department. They had announced their comeback towards the end of the first half but it was the Thalaivas who came back all guns blazing in the second to completely outplay the Steelers.

Right then, the Tamil Thalaivas and the Haryana Steelers have had quite contrasting campaigns so far. While the Thalaivas are known for finishing games in ties, with them being part of as many as four tied encounters, the Steelers have failed to get over the line on multiple occasions and have had quite a topsy-turvy campaign so far. 

The Tamil Thalaivas have a five match unbeaten streak and come into this encounter on the back of a tie against the Patna Pirates. The Steelers too are on a three-match unbeaten streak and will be looking to extend it by another. A win here will level the Steelers' points with U Mumba while a win for the Thalaivas will see them displace U Mumba and finish fourth. A cracker of a contest is on the cards as both sides will look to give it their all and extend their unbeaten streaks. A battle between the defence of both sides awaits us and expect this to be a low-coring thriller!
