Pro Kabaddi 2018 Haryana Steelers vs U Mumba, Telugu Titans vs UP Yoddha Highlights: The second match was the headline of the day. U Mumba took an early lead and never let up. Haryana Steelers were simply unable to contain their raiders and their own forwards were unable to keep up with the opposition. An extraordinary result this. In the end, the two sides are separated by an astonishing point-difference of 27 points.

THAT'S THAT! U Mumba beat Haryana Steelers 53-26

27 points is the difference between these two sides. Haryana practically lost the match in the first half and it just kept slipping farther away from them. U Mumba were ruthless. This is ominous for the rest of the teams. U Mumba have today emerged as one of the favourites to win the title this season.

22:21 (IST)13 Oct 2018
U Mumba 51-23 Haryana

My word there is an allout and now the gap has increased to 28 points! U Mumba have crossed the 50-mark. 

22:18 (IST)13 Oct 2018
U Mumba 45-22 Haryana

23 point gap with just over three minutes to go. This match has been U Mumba's right from the start and it is unlikely that the situation would change at the end of this match. 

22:11 (IST)13 Oct 2018
U Mumba 41-18 Haryana

Into the 40s now and U Mumba are absolutely flying. It's just too easy for them. They are getting points from raids and tackles.

21:57 (IST)13 Oct 2018
Haryana 15-30 U Mumba

Rohit Baliyan raids succesfully and U Mumba reach the 30s already. No reprieve for Haryana here. U Mumba are looking ominous in the sheer strength they have in all departments. 

21:51 (IST)13 Oct 2018
HALF TIME! Haryana 15-27 Mumbai

A first half that belonged only to one team. Haryana took two points in the end to come within 12 points of U Mumba but the away side have put in a clinical performance here. This does look like a lopsided contest if it is going to continue in the same vein in the second half. 

21:46 (IST)13 Oct 2018
Haryana 13-26 Mumbai

Haryana finally managed a tackle and get to 13. They then review a bonus point that was given to U Mumba but that is a rather bad decision from them. They lose a review. 

21:42 (IST)13 Oct 2018
Haryana 9-20 U Mumba

This match is slipping away from Haryana. Another succesfull raid from Abhishek Singh and U Mumba are into the 20s. Haryana are yet to get into double digits,

21:38 (IST)13 Oct 2018
Haryana 7-18 U Mumba

Do or die raid and Vikas Khandola is succesfull. But then Rohit Baliyan goes in and takes two. No way out for Haryana at the moment. 

21:35 (IST)13 Oct 2018
Haryana 5-15 Mumbai

This is a truly astonishing effort from Mumbai. Their raiders are working in tandem and the defenders have ensured that they have taken just 5 points in the first 9 mins. 

21:30 (IST)13 Oct 2018
Here are the second set of players

Haryana Steelers started the home leg with a win. Now they face one of the best defences in the league in the form of U Mumba. Can Haryana continue and take advantage of their home leg? Well we have no binoculars into the future so lets wait and watch as it unfolds. 

21:10 (IST)13 Oct 2018
Telugu Titans WIN

Telugu Titans defeat UP Yoddha 31-29 in Sonepat. Hyderabad give a dominant performance in the start of the second half. The Yoddhas make a good comeback but it is a little too late as they lose the match by two points.

Next up: Haryana Steelers vs U Mumba

20:57 (IST)13 Oct 2018
Titans 31-22 UP

UP are looking flattened now. A tackle and a raid and Titans are into the 30s now. Prashanth Rai then seemed to successfully raid but UP overturn that decision. 

20:51 (IST)13 Oct 2018
Titans 27-20 UP

UP get into the 20s but Titans still have a seven-point lead with just over 6 mins left. This is turning out to be another clinical performance from Rahul Chaudhari and co. 

20:44 (IST)13 Oct 2018
Titans 24-18 UP

Nilesh Salunke was awarded a bonus point but then it was decided he had not managed to keep his foot in the air after all. Successful review by UP. 

20:37 (IST)13 Oct 2018
Titans 20-14 UP

Empty raids on both sdies and then Yoddha manage to tackle Mohsen Maghsodlou. 

20:34 (IST)13 Oct 2018
Titans 20-13 UP

Succesfull raid by Rahul Chaudhari and then a tackle, good start to the second half for the Telugu Titans. 

20:29 (IST)13 Oct 2018
HALF TIME! Titans 17-13 UP

Eight tackle points for the Titans. An intriguing first half in which we saw brilliance in both departmens. The Titans maintain their distance but UP have come too close for their comfort a couple of times. UP will know that putting constant pressure will be enough for them to get their noses in front. 

20:25 (IST)13 Oct 2018
Titans 17-13 UP Yoddha

Three men remaining on the Titans half and they manage to tackle Devadiga! Two points go their way.

20:23 (IST)13 Oct 2018
Titans 15-13 Yoddha

The decision stands, Titans lose their review and they also lead the five-point lead they had. Shot in the arm for UP Yoddha. 

Pro Kabaddi 2018 Haryana Steelers vs U Mumba Highlights:
