U Mumba to a thrilling victory over Haryana Steelers
U Mumba defensive unit came to the party yet again and as did the likes of Guman Singh and Jai Bhagwan, as they survived a couple of scares against the Haryana Steelers enroute picking up a crucial win in the vivo Pro Kabaddi League Season 9 at the Shree Kanteerava Indoor Stadium, Bengaluru on Friday. The U Mumba side won the nail-biter 32-31.
While Guman Singh picked up the first points for U Mumba, it was Meetu Sharma who got the Haryana Steelers off the mark. U Mumba’s defensive unit didn’t allow the Steelers to edge ahead as Jai Bhagwan and co inflicted an ALL OUT to give U Mumba a good lead as the midway stage of the first half approached.
U Mumba pressed home their advantage and continued to pick up points quickly as the Steelers’ task became tougher, in what was a pacy game. However, Nitin Rawal and Manjeet’s SUPER TACKLE kept the Steelers in the hunt. At the midway point, U Mumba led 17-15, but, the momentum was firmly with the Steelers.
U Mumba regained the momentum and surged ahead in the early part of the second half to widen their lead further. But Amirhossein Bastami and Sushil led the fightback for the Steelers as U Mumba’s lead continued to reduce by the play. The Steelers took the lead with less than 7 minutes to go when Jaideep Dahiya helped his team inflict an ALL OUT.
The Steelers fought hard in the final phase of the game, and seemed to have proceedings going their way, but Guman Singh picked up a couple of crucial raids to help his team clinch a thriller.
