U.P. Yoddhas, the GMR group-owned franchise plying their trade in the Pro Kabaddi 2023-24, are ready to face Haryana Steelers in their next game, which will be played tomorrow at The Arena by TransStadia. Yoddhas, who missed the winning bus by just three points against U Mumba in their season opener, are currently placed seventh in the PKL 2023-24 points table with one point to their kitty. The PKL Season 10 match between U.P. Yoddhas and Haryana Steelers will be telecast LIVE on Star Sports Network and can be streamed LIVE on Disney Hotstar on December 6, 2023, at 09:00 p.m. (IST) onwards.
Statistically, U.P. Yoddhas and Haryana Steelers have met each other eight times in the history of the Pro Kabaddi League, where both teams have three victories each, and the other two games have been tied.
“We went down to U Mumba by a very slender margin in our season's opening match. We are very confident about bouncing back against the Haryana Steelers, as we will ensure that we do not repeat the mistakes from that game. We have a good environment in our team, and we all are spending as much time as we can with each other, and this camaraderie will be seen on the mat”, said Jasveer Singh, head coach of the U.P. Yoddhas.
Experienced raider Surender Gill and Anil Kumar, who debuted for U.P. Yoddhas in the last match, did the bulk of scoring raid points and will look to continue their good start to Pro Kabaddi Season 10. Captain Pardeep Narwal, who is searching for his actual form, will look to overturn his fortunes in the match. All-rounders Nitin Panwar and Vijay Malik will be responsible for maintaining balance in the raiding and defence departments. Haryana’s raiders will have their task cut out against the formidable defensive pair of Nitesh Kumar Sumit and Ashu Singh, who have made it hard for the raiders to gather points.
Haryana Steelers will be taking the mat for the first time in the season, and the clash between the two teams from North India promises to be an exciting affair.
