Pro Kabaddi 2018 Highlights, Haryana Steelers vs U Mumba, Bengaluru Bulls vs Tamil Thalaivas:

22:57 (IST) 17 Oct 2018
U Mumba beat Haryana Steelers 42-32

Siddharth Desai's six-point raid has been the catalyst in this and Haryana Steelers never recovered from it. 

22:15 (IST) 17 Oct 2018
Haryana Steelers 27-40 U Mumba

Siddharth Desai becomes the fastest in Pro Kabaddi history to 50 points. 

22:14 (IST) 17 Oct 2018
Haryana Steelers 27-36 U Mumba

Haryana Steelers simply not helping themselves by gifting points to U Mumba raiders. Siddharth Desai gets two points in one raid. He has now moved to 13 points. U Mumba are an incredible force.

22:02 (IST) 17 Oct 2018
Haryana Steelers 20-31 U Mumba

Not much in it for the raiders at the moment but Mumbai would be more than happy for the situation to remain like this. 

21:55 (IST) 17 Oct 2018
Haryana Steelers 19-25 U Mumba

Six points remains the gap between the two sides in the early minutes of the second half. Just goes on to show how much of a difference that mammoth raid was for U Mumba. But, they are down to just two men in their half of the mat. 

21:37 (IST) 17 Oct 2018
Haryana Steelers 13-21 U Mumba

Six point raid by Siddhart Desai took U Mumba's tally to 19 points. Suddenly U Mumba are in complete control. Haryana have come across a mountain to climb and it has come out of nowhere. 

21:30 (IST) 17 Oct 2018
Haryana Steelers 12-10 U Mumba

This match has quite a different script from the one that went down between these two sides before. Haryana Steelers have got U Mumba on the ropes. 

21:23 (IST) 17 Oct 2018
Haryana Steelers 5-4 U Mumba

Nothing to separate the two sides at the moment. 

21:17 (IST) 17 Oct 2018
Haryana Steelers 1-1 U Mumba

Siddharth Desai and Monu Goyat both successful in their raids and so the two teams start on level terms. 

21:02 (IST) 17 Oct 2018
THAT'S THAT! Bengaluru Bulls 44-35 Tamil Thalaivas

Still no win for Tamil Thalaivas after that opening match win against Patna Pirates. 

20:53 (IST) 17 Oct 2018
Bengaluru 41-29 Thalaivas

Thalaivas simply not able to get anywhere close to the Bulls. Sukesh Hegde had to be stretchered off and since then, Thalaivas have lost steam. 

20:36 (IST) 17 Oct 2018
Bengaluru 30-24 Thalaivas

Thalaivas have come back a different team. Ajay Thakur has led their resurgence. 

20:23 (IST) 17 Oct 2018
Bengaluru 25-14 Thalaivas at half time

Mahender Singh got a green card just before the stroke half time. This has been Bengaluru's half through and through and Tamil Thalaivas have not shown any ability of coming back from this. 

20:13 (IST) 17 Oct 2018
Bengaluru 15-6 Thalaivas

So Kashling Adake had started this rout with a four-point raid on his very first attempt. Thalaivas have very rarely managed to get a single point out of raids since then. A Super Tackle helped them get themselves to six points. 

20:07 (IST) 17 Oct 2018
Bengaluru 9-2 Thalaivas

What a start from Bengaluru. They manage to inflict an all put within the first six minutes of the match. 

19:57 (IST) 17 Oct 2018
Teams

So these are the starters for both sides

19:48 (IST) 17 Oct 2018
Hello and welcome!

The defeat against  Bengaluru Bulls was probably one of the toughest ones to take for Tamil Thalaivas among the four they suffered at home. It was an even contest for the first 10 minutes but that changed after Pawan stole five points from a single raid. Bengaluru just kept building on that and the crushed Thalaivas, no matter how hard they tried, remained behind for the rest of the match. They would hope that something like that does not occur again this time.
