With this impressive victory, the Steelers have bolstered their playoff prospects, accumulating 60 points in the standings.
Shivam Patare and Vinay were instrumental for the Steelers, contributing double-digit points with their exceptional raiding skills. On the opposing side, Mahipal was the sole standout performer for the U.P. Yoddhas, earning a Super 10 amidst the team’s defeat.
The triumph brought immense joy to the fans of the Haryana Steelers, as their team showcased dominance on the kabaddi mat, inching closer to their seasonal goal of securing a playoff berth.
During the post-match press conference, contrasting emotions were evident from both camps. Head coach Manpreet Singh of the Haryana Steelers expressed satisfaction with the team’s performance, highlighting the importance of securing a victory before the upcoming home leg. Singh emphasized the team’s confidence and set a target of winning at least two out of the four remaining matches to solidify their playoff position.
In contrast, U.P. Yoddhas’ head coach, Jasveer Singh, reflected on the disappointing result, attributing it to the team’s inexperienced raiding department and a lapse in defensive performance. Despite high expectations from young players like Shivam Chaudhary and Hitesh, the team fell short of delivering as per expectations. However, Singh expressed optimism about players like Gagan Gowda, who continue to show promise.
As the PKL 10 season progresses, the Haryana Steelers remain focused on maintaining their momentum and securing crucial victories in the remaining matches. With their sights set on the playoffs, they are determined to capitalize on their current form and solidify their position in the league standings.
