New Delhi: Hello and welcome to India.com’s LIVE coverage of Pro Kabaddi League 2017. Tonight, Bengal Warriors will take on Telugu Titans in match 73 while Haryana Steelers are up against Dabang Delhi KC in match number 74 at the Motilal Nehru Schoool of Sports, Sonepat in the intra-zonal rivalries.
Bengal Warriors vs Telugu Titans, Match 73 (Zone B)
Bengal Warriors enter Tuesday’s match on the back of a satisfactory home leg in Kolkata, which has helped them strengthen their position in the Zone B points table. The raiding department of the Warriors has been in exemplary form, with Maninder Singh dismantling opposition defences at will. Surjeet Singh’s presence on the mat works as a catalyst for his team as his captaincy skills are on a par with his defending capabilities. However, with Telugu Titans finding their feet slowly, it’s important for Bengal not to make too many mistakes.
The Titans enter the match high on confidence after putting up a brilliant display against Haryana Steelers on Sunday. All their departments fired and ensured they stuck to their strategy. Placed fifth in Zone B and tied on 29 points with Bengaluru Bulls from 14 matches, the Titans would be inspired to take revenge for their loss to the Warriors earlier this season. Rahul Chaudhari has led the raiding department with aplomb, while the defence has seen the rise of youngsters Vishal Bhardwaj and Sombir.
Haryana Steelers vs Dabang Delhi KC, Match 74 (Zone A)
Haryana Steelers’ home leg has not been off to a good start with them managing just one win in three matches. However, after a day’s breather, one can expect Zone A’s second-placed team to revise their strategies and replicate their match-winning performance against Delhi earlier this season. Star defenders Surender Nada and Mohit Chhillar have looked a little unsteady in recent matches but they remain a threat to opposition raiders. Prashanth Kumar Rai and Wazir Singh have also been in good raiding touch and can prove lethal for Delhi’s shaky defence.
Dabang Delhi KC remain at the bottom of Zone A but they seemed to have learnt from their mistakes as can be witnessed in their last few performances. Though the Nilesh Shinde-led defence has lost its early promise, the raiding department has been up to scratch. Meraj Sheykh’s brilliant raiding mind has been at the centre of Delhi’s two wins and one tie in their last three matches, with fellow Iranian Abolfazl Maghsodlou and youngster Anand Patil also performing their duties nicely. Their defence will have to tighten if they want to win this match.
