Welcome to the final day at the office in the league stage in season 10. This has been a journey of heartbreaks and surprises. This will be the 132nd match of the season. Haryana Steelers have qualified for the eliminators while the Bengaluru Bulls will make their last appearance of the season. These 3 months were quite disappointing for the Bulls as they could win just 7 out of their 21 matches. Placed 9th in the points table, the Bulls could neither elevate their game not adapt to the changes. They lost to Dabang Delhi by 8 points in the last match. The Bulls did display some grit as young raider Sushil scored a Super 10. 

The Haryana Steelers went through some hammering at the hands of the Puneri Paltan. This was a golden opportunity for the Steelers to test themselves and surprise a higher ranked team. Though the Haryana defense was up to the task, they could not stop Puneri raider Mohit Goyat as the Steelers lost the match by a margin of 15 points. With the qualification secured, the Haryana Steelers will enter the arena to bust the Bulls so that they can build some momentum for the eliminators. The Bengaluru Bulls will look for revenge as they lost a close match to the Steelers earlier in the season.

Haryana Steelers Preview

One of the most vibrant teams of the PKL got a wake-up call in their first match as they were hammered by the UP Yodha. The margin of victory for UP was 30 points and this is enough to indicate that the Steelers were still sleepy as they entered the arena. Haryana Steelers have always used team effort to fox their opponents. They have been tactically superior in most of their games. 

Haryana Steelers have won 13 out of their 21 matches. Most of these victories have some in the last few weeks. They have 70 points in all as they play the Bengaluru Bulls in their last league match. If they win this match, they will jump above Dabang Delhi who are placed 3rd with 13 victories in the season. This will be a significant jump for the Steelers who are currently 5th in the points table. Haryana lost their last match to the Puneri Paltan. This was a golden opportunity for them to tame a top rated team. If the Steelers could have defeated the Paltan, it would have given them a sense of confidence as they enter the eliminators. Haryana los the match by a margin of 15 points. Though raiders Vinay and Ashish scored 18 raid points between them, the Haryana defense could not stop the Puneri raiders. This kept them behind their opponents through the match. Captain Jaideep was ruthless with 7 tackle points while right corner Mohit Nandal scored a Hi 5. But the Steelers were left bruised by 2 all-outs that they conceded in the first half. Haryana has to be careful about this factor in the knock-outs. The Steelers bought star raider Siddharth Desai for 1 Cr in the auctions. Siddharth was the MVP a few seasons back when he made his PKL debut for U Mumba. He was troubled by injuries and lack of form last year when he was with the Telegu Titans. But the move of drafting a superstar did not work for the Steelers in season 10. 

The Steelers have a good bunch of defenders who can help them recharge. Right corner Rahul Sethpal and left corner Mohit were impressive. Hence Haryana needs to just concentrate on its earning via raids. The Steelers look tactically superior to the Bengaluru Bulls as they would like to enter the eliminators with a victory in their last league match.

Bengaluru Bulls Preview

Former Champions Bengaluru Bulls have been a pale shadow of themselves. They lost their first three matches which hurt them badly through the season. Due to these early losses, Bengaluru was never able to recover. The Bulls had a decent run in season 9 as they reached the play-off. They were consistent and effective with their tactics. But this time they messed up with their combination and waited too long for things to change. Season 10 has exposed several of their weaknesses. First of all they seem to be very predictable. They lost their first bout to the Gujarat Giants even after leading at half-time. They suffered an all-out in the second half which took the game away. Then they lost to the Bengal Warriors, a match they should have won. The Bulls suffered another defeat at the hands of Dabang Delhi and hence the chinks in their armor are exposed.

With just 7 victories out of 21 matches their fate was sealed last week as they were out of the race for the next round. The Bulls are placed at the 9th position as they take on the Haryana Steelers in their last outing of the season. The Bulls changed their combination mid-season giving opportunities to young raiders. But their defense remained inconsistent. They lost their last match to Dabang Delhi by a margin of 8 points. Young raider Sushil scored 11 points but the defense failed to live up to the expectations. The Bengaluru defense could score just 9 tackle points in the entire match. The Bulls intensified their attack in the second half to inflict 2 all-outs on Dabang, but it was too late for them. 

Bengaluru has recorded a success rate of just 32% in team raids.

Their efficiency in team tackles has been about 43%. They have conceded 762 team points this season apart from conceding 30 all-outs in 21 matches. 

Bengaluru Bulls have won 5 out of their 9 encounters against the Haryana Steelers, but most of the games have been low scoring ones. Both the league games last year between the Bulls and the Steelers were close calls and one can expect this one to go down the wire.

Welcome to the final bout of the league stage in season 10. A lot of teams performed beyond expectations while some could not kick start their campaign. The 6 seats for the eliminators have been booked as Haryana take on Bengaluru in the 132nd match of the season. Though the Steelers lost their last match against the Puneri Paltan, they look well equipped to handle the Bulls. Raiders Vinay and Shivam Patare will be quick while all-rounder Ashish will be a useful raider. One of them will score a Super 10. Captain Jaideep and Mohit Nandal along with Rahul Sethpal will hunt precisely. 

The Bengaluru raiders may face an uphill task against the steely Haryana defense. Young raiders Sushil and Akshit will survive the Haryana defense as one of them will score a Super 10. Defenders Rakshit and left corner Ran Singh will be tough to handle in the second half. But the Bulls may concede a few all-outs in the second half which will make it difficult for them to survive. The final league bout of the season will be full of fireworks.

Haryana Steelers will win.
