Pro Kabaddi League 2017: Haryana Steelers end Gujarat Fortunegiants’ unbeaten run

Nagpur: Haryana Steelers ended Gujarat Fortunegiants' unbeaten run with a 32-20 win in the Pro Kabaddi league on Tuesday.

Vikas Khandola was one of the stars for Haryana.

He led the way with some wonderful raids which included a moment of brilliance when he was caught by the rival defenders but managed to touch the line with his legs.

Gujarat fought back strongly after a moderate first half but the Steelers' impressive play kept them ahead. They never allowed Gujarat any leeway and ran away to a convincing win.

With seven minutes to go, Haryana led 18-11 and the best efforts of the Fortungiants raider yielded nothing positive.

It was a rather slow first half-match in the encounter between the strong Steelers and Fortunegiants.

Surjeet Singh set the ball rolling for the Steelers after Sukesh Hegde won the toss for Fortunegiants and opted for the left hand side of the court.

Surjeet got two points for Haryana with his first raid as the men in blue looked to be front runners.

It took five minutes for the Gujrat franchise to get on the board as Vikas Khandola came up with an unsuccessful raid. Haryana, buoyed by the good work of Kandola, kept accumulating the points before the opponent managed to fight back.

After 18 minutes of play, the two teams were level on points as Gujarat's defence rose to the occasion.
