The Haryana Steelers are facing Gujarat Fortunegiants in the seventh period of the Pro Kabaddi League in New Delhi on Wednesday, 28 August. The Steelers have picked up force in the wake of winning against U Mumba and Bengal Warriors in back to back matches and they will unquestionably be hoping to expand on their present structure.
Vinay, who has been Haryana’s third best pillager in PKL 7, communicated that tolerance was the key in their past match against Bengal Warriors.
“One of the encouraging points in the success against Bengal Warriors for us was that we were understanding and controlled our exhibition. We didn’t delay in any purpose of the match and executed our arrangements well,” said Vinay.
The 20-year-old added that the guidance of the senior players has helped him become a better player,
“I am very excited to play for Haryana Steelers. I have understood that, if I follow whatever our captain Dharmaraj Cheralathan and our lead raider Vikash Kandola tell me to do, my game will always be on point,” said the young raider.
Haryana Steelers and Gujarat Fortunegiants faced off against each other on three occasions in the last season. While the Steelers won their first encounter 32-25, the Gujarat Fortunegiants won the next two matches 40-31 and 47-37 respectively. Haryana have a well-settled side this season and therefore they will be hoping to improve their record against Gujarat.
Haryana’s raiding unit has been excellent in PKL 7, however, they will have to be wary of Gujarat’s Parvesh Bhainswal and Sunil Kumar. The Steelers will have to ensure that they execute their plans against the duo of Bhainswal and Kumar. Kandola and Vinay have been in excellent form for the Steelers and the raiders will lead the charge for the team once again.
“Gujarat have a decent guarded unit on the two sides of the tangle. In any case, we will concentrate on our qualities and hope to play as per our procedures,” said Vinay.
