It is time to celebrate for the Haryana Steelers are they have qualified for the eliminators. Haryana defeated the Patna Pirates in a tough match to secure the final spot in the next round. This was a huge relief for the Steelers as they are playing back to back matches in 2 days. If Haryana would have lost their last game, it would have put a lot of pressure on them against U Mumba. Mumba lost their last match to the Bengal Warriors. With the season in the last leg of the league stage, U Mumba are missing some important players. Mumba is placed 10th in the points table as they could win just 6 matches in the season.

With the qualification in place, Haryana will try out some young players against U Mumba. This will provide some rest to the senior players while coach Manpreet could try out some new players. The last week of the league stage is about formalities as all the spots for the next round have been booked. U Mumba too will try and field young players so that their fans can be provided with some entertainment. Both teams settled for a TIE in their last encounter in this season. That was a high scoring match which witnessed 88 team points scored by both teams. This will be another exciting encounter as their future for both teams is known.

Haryana Steelers Preview

The Haryana Steelers are back on track after a few speed-breakers early in the season. They defeated Patna Pirates in their last match hence securing the last spot for the next round. This will come as a sigh of relief for the Steelers as they still have to play another 2 league matches on home turf after their encounter with U Mumba. Haryana Steelers had a clear plan against the Pirates as coach Manpreet did not want to leave it for the last few matches. With a confirmed ticket for the next round after this victory, Haryana Steelers can relax a bit before the eliminators. 

After overcoming the disappointment of Siddharth Jadhav not firing, the Steelers changed their approach and their SOP. Coach Manpreet used the services of Vinay and Shivam Patare which worked for the Steelers. Siddharth Desai has been inconsistent in this season, but he bounced back with a Super 10 against the Patna Pirates. This is also a blessing in disguise for the Steelers as he could be their X factor in the eliminators. But it was the Haryana defense which went overboard hunting the Pirates. Defender Rahul Sethpal was ruthless as he earned 8 tackle points while Jaideep and left corner Mohit scored 12 tackle points between them. The Steelers intensified their attacks in the second half to overtake the Pirates and secure the last spot in the eliminators. Their biggest strength is the options they have in their squad. Also most of the youngsters have punched above their weight. Radier Vinay, defenders Rahul Sethpal and Ashish are prime examples. 

Haryana Steelers have inflicted 24 all-outs in 19 matches in this season. 

Their success rate in team raid is about 34% and that is a concern. Their efficiency in team tackles is 46% which is quite impressive. 

The Haryana Steelers have executed 28 Super tackles which proves that they excel under pressure. This also indicates that time and again in every match they have less number of players on the mat. 

Hence the Steelers needs to guard their players from giving away easy touch points to their opponents. Haryana will be up against U Mumba who are struggling. This will be a golden opportunity for them to exploit their fragile opponents and create the necessary momentum which will be useful during the eliminators.

U Mumba Preview

After an inconsistent start to the season, fans thought that U Mumba is peaking at the right time. They won 4 consecutive matches and have moved to the 6th spot in the points table. But U Mumba could not maintain the momentum on their home turf in Mumbai.  They lost to the defending champions, Jaipur followed by a defeat to former champions Dabang Delhi. This has been the pattern of U Mumba in season 10 as they win a few matches which is followed by a nervous breakdown. This pushed them to the 10th spot in the points table as they could win just 6 matches in the season. U Mumba had issues with their raiding in their first few games. But it was sorted as Guman Singh found his mojo along with young Iranian raider Zafardanesh scoring at a brisk pace. But in the last couple of weeks during the league stage, Mumba started disintegrating and they were out of the race for the next round. It is a case of completing their commitments in the season as they take on the Haryana Steelers.

Mumba gave a tough fight to the Steelers in their last encounter. They forced a TIE in a hig h scoring match. Zafardanesh scored a Super 10 in that match along with some precise hunting by defenders Sombir and Rinku. Unfortunately as the season progressed, defender Rinku was out of action while raider Guman Singh got injured. This resulted in U Mumba losing to the Bengal Warriors in their last match. As Mumba is out of the race for the next round, young raider Shivam as handed the captaincy and he delivered with a Super 10. Defenders Bittu and Sombir scored 7 tackle points between them but the other members could not contribute. Hence Mumba lost the match by a margin of 12 points. Mumba will be up against the very aggressive Haryana Steelers. 

As U Mumba cannot move ahead in the tournament, they will try out youngsters as they did in their last match. Raiders Shivam, Zafardanesh and all-rounder Visvanath need to motivate themselves as well as their team members to put up a fight for their fans. Mumba will aim to win this match and finish on a high.

Haryana Steelers secure their qualification as they won their last match against the Pirates. Raider Siddharth Desai scored a Super 10. He will be up against his former team U Mumba. The trio of Siddharth, Vinay and Shivam Patare will resonate as one of them will score a Super 10. They will try and exploit the fragile Mumba defense. Coach Manpreet may try a few youngsters in this match as the Steelers have already qualified. Hence one may see players like Naveen Kundu, Sunny Sherawat and Iranian Hasan Balbool in action.

U Mumba will field a young side as they take on the Steelers. Raider Shivam will score another Super 10 while defenders Bittu and Sombir will excel together. Unfortunately, the Mumba covers are their weakness. This will be exploited by the Haryana Steelers. Mumba forced a TIE in their last meeting with the Steelers, but this time they may have to work overtime to defeat the Steelers.

Haryana Steelers will win.
