PUN vs UP Dream11 : Reinvigorated Haryana Steelers scour further impetuous in their bid to keep making massive strides in the league standings with a win today
They started the showpiece league with a howler of a form behind them, losing matches left, right and centre but Haryana Steelers’ have seen their determination and gusty nature come to the fore over the course of the last month. The side have turned around what was a crumbling start to life in Pro Kabaddi League 7 to rise all the way to sixth place in the points tally, a position they’ll be looking to further climb from when they begin proceedings in a new week in PKL.
Winning their previous encounter, Haryana Steelers have to thank Vikash Khandola massively for their ruthless raiding form at the moment. Ever since returning from an injury, the raider has been in imperious form, imploring his side into riveting raiding displays, one which have seen them obliterate their opponents to nudge their way into the fought after top 6 slots.
It’s a performance he’ll be looking to resonate today when they square off against third placed Bengal Warriors, a side who defeated Puneri Paltan in their previous encounter. With both the side having the same number of wins in the league and both flourishing under the tutelage of exceptional and specialist raiders, this match promises to be a closely contested and rigorous encounter, one which will be decided by the barest of margins.

We have also picked out Chand Singh from the side after his substitute appearance over the course of the last two encounters. He comes in at a price of just 9.5 credits, helping free up crucial credits to invest in elsewhere.
Although Baldev Singh is the Warriors’ leading tackler with 26 tackle points, the defender has tempered off recently, failing to put in the same astute tackles which saw him become such a daunting figure for raiders.
