UP Yoddha and Haryana Steelers won their last matches against the defending champions Bengaluru Bulls and in both the cases, everyone in their team contributed to the win. So this is going to be an interesting encounter between the teams who had faced success and setbacks in equal measures.
In the previous match, UP Yoddha won without Rishank Devadiga's presence on the mat that too convincingly. They played as a unit and both the raiding and defence unit seemed in sync with one another. Sumit got a High Five and he was well supported by the rest of the defence whereas Monu and Shrikant held their own in raiding. So they executed their plans well and would hope they could repeat this performance again in this match.
Haryana Steelers have now won three of their six matches and the last two wins came in their last two matches so they have a good combination as well as good rhythm going on. In their last match against the Bulls, they performed strategically with their defence stopping the raiders through a particular technique and how they defeated them. Coach Rakesh Kumar must have an elaborate plan against UP Yoddha as well which the team will look forward to executing properly.
The captain has the responsibility to guide his team which he did well in the last match. Though individually he was only able to score two points which he would hope to change today especially if they want to stop Vikas Kandola from scoring points.
After he came into the team, the balance of the team has improved as he is their strike raider and is performing well. Vikas would hope to score points against the opposition captain Nitesh Kumar who has not been in very good form recently so he will look to capitalize on that.
