In the 97th match of Pro Kabaddi League 2019, Bengal Warriors showed that they are here just to win the prestigious title this year as the Maninder Singh-led team steal the show from Haryana Steelers at Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex. The stellar performance of star skipper Maninder Singh helped his squad to clinch 48-36 win over Haryana on Thursday.

Without any surprise, the first half of the game was dominated by Bengal Warriors who inflicted their first All-out of the eve in just seven minutes of starting. After the big blow at such an early stage Steelers lost all the confidence and suffered another attack of All-Out by Bengal squad at 13th minute. As a result, Warriors took a 15-point lead in the game in the first half. Though the lone wolf in Haryana squad Vinay kept scoring for his team in order to reduce the gap till half time. It was Bengal Warriors who were leading by 30-14 scoreline after the end of the first half.

At the beginning of the second half, Warriors raced to their third All-Out of the night on Haryana Steelers but this time Steelers came back strongly. The three-point Super Raid by Vinay helped his side to secure first All-Out of the game against Warriors. It seemed the tables have been turned around once again. But Warriors’ amazing defence steadied their drowning ship and at last, they wrapped up the game on winning side.
