FULL TIME! U Mumba 32-31 Haryana Steelers

Whew! A rush of adrenaline and an absolute edge-of-the-seat thriller to kick-off Friday night's proceedings! However, it should not have been as close as it turned out to be in the end. In both the halves, it was U Mumba who took a massive lead by inflicting an all-out initially but squandered it on both occasions as the Steelers came roaring back into the contest. Poor game management from the young side but their aggressive approach is bound to have this drawback. The Steelers assumed lead for the first time in the match towards the last five minutes of the game but U Mumba managed to reclaim the lead, albeit a slender one, which they managed to hold onto in the end. A terrific display by Surinder Singh, finishing with six tackle points, while Guman Singh fell short of a Super 10 by just a solitary point. Harendra Kumar had three points to his name as well and his form will certainly help U Mumba in their coming matches. As for the Steelers, there was no raider to take the onus upon himself in a game where Manjeet just failed to get going completely. They will certainly be looking to correct that going into their next game as they have now faced a hat-trick of defeats. As for U Mumba, this win takes them to the fourth position in the points table. 
40' 31 seconds are left on the clock as Guman Singh comes in to raid. He plays out all thirty seconds of his raid and went for a kick as well in the end to negate the extra one second that the Steelers could have had to start a raid. Ensures that there will be no raid and he is TIMED OUT! However, it won't matter - U Mumba have gotten a much needed win under their belt by a narrow 1 point! 
40' OH FANTASTIC! What a tackle by U Mumba! Harendra Kumar and Surinder Singh run around for a block! Prapanjan's hand was  almost ON THE MID-LINE but could not cross it. Sheer aggression from the covers and Prapanjan is brought down just millimetres behind the mid-line! Oh wow! That's the match there surely!

Haryana Steelers review! The umpire deems the jersey pull had a substantial effect on the tackle and the point is awarded to the Steelers.

HALF TIME! Haryana Steelers 15-17 U Mumba

U Mumba have squandered quite a lead here! They inflicted the all-out early in the contest and were looking all set for another but have just failed to wipe out the Steelers, allowing them to inflict Super Tackle upon Super Tackle which has reduced the lead down to just a couple of points going into the second half of the contest. Harendra Kumar in the left cover is looking much better today while the left corner continues to be a weak spot for them. The third raider in Ankush has failed to pick up a single point and U Mumba will perhaps look to bring in the Iranian Heidarali Ekrami in the second half. As for the Steelers, it is the corners once again failing to pick up a single point whereas Manjeet has been brought down consistently. However, they have momentum on their side going into he second half. Promises to be an absolute edge-of-the-seat thriller! Which side will emerge on top? Stick around to find out!

14' Vinay gets in a bonus point in front of the left corner defender as the defense play it safe.

U Mumba 15-8 Haryana Steelers
13' Do-or-die raid for U Mumba and it is Jai Bhagwan who comes in for it. He runs around and raids on both sides. Just three seconds left on the clock and it is Rakesh in the left-in who just loses focus. Jai Bhagwan gets in a comfortable touch. 
12' As soon as Meetu Sharma tries a bonus point, Mohit puts in a terrific ankle hold and there was no escaping that. 
11' Ankush is awarded a toe-touch but the Steelers reviewed it! There was clear daylight between the raider's and the defender's shoe and that was quite a poor decision. Review successful! No touch point.

Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of the Pro Kabaddi League 2022 which will witness Season 2 champions U Mumba take on the Haryana Steelers at the Shree Kanteerava Indoor Stadium, Bengaluru. 

U Mumba have had quite a decent run in the tournament given that not many gave them too much of a chance ahead of the tournament. They have played four games and have managed to win a couple. Their last game against the Puneri Paltan was one which went right down the wire and despite a valiant effort from the Mumboys, they came up short in the Maharashtrian Derby. Nonetheless, they will be looking forward to picking themselves up again and putting up a show. An area of concern has been the left cover and Harendra Kumar might just get replaced ahead of this fixture for a youngster. 

The Haryana Steelers, on the other hand, find themselves in a similar situation as their opponents for tonight. They have two wins and two losses from their four games as well and hold the edge over U Mumba in the points table courtesy of a superior Points Difference. The Steelers too lost a close encounter against Dabang Delhi K.C. in their last game and perhaps their over-reliance on Manjeet and the raiding department is causing them a little trouble. Their covers have been decent but the corners need to pick up the slack. 

It promises to be an exciting clash and expect both sides to come out all guns blazing! Strap yourselves in and grab your popcorn, we are in for quite a ride! Taking you through this contest will be me, Maanas Upadhyay. Sit back, relax and enjoy the coverage!
