Final Score: 21-37

18-36 They're walking to the finish line now, Jaipur Pink Panthers. Less than a minute to go.

16-34 ALL OUT! Deepak Hooda takes out both the remaining Steelers men on a raid and that is definitely it for the Haryana Steelers. Hooda picks up his 12th point of the match. What a match for the Jaipur captain!

16-28 Amitabh Bachchan is on his feet and pumped!! Why? Ajinkya Pawar picks up two points on a raid after some poor defending from the Steelers. That has been rare today. Is that game over for the Haryana Steelers? Less than 5 minutes to go.

16-26 Deepak Hooda looks like he's only going to go for the safe points on the raids. He doesn't need to do anything risky, just needs to stay on the mat while the defence takes care of things in their court.

15-24 There's less than 8 minutes to go in the match and Pink Panthers are extending their lead. Deepak Hooda picks up a bonus point and that's a Super 10 .  Meanwhile, Haryana's Naveen has brought up his first point of the match. Quite a contrasting match for the young raider who was excellent in the Steelers' first two.

13-23 Smart work from Haryana after the time out! Deepak Narwal tries to jump past the chain. Next thing he knows he's flat on the mat. Now, the Steelers' raiders need to find something from somewhere.

11-23 What strength from Dhull! Wow. The Haryana raider is brought to the floor and Sandeep Dull pulls him back. There's no way he's getting out of that hold. Pink Panthers are running away with this.

11-22 Brilliant tackle from Sandeep Dhull at the right corner. It's an 11-point lead to Jaipur and its defense has much to be proud of today.

10-19 Deepak Hooda is looking excellent today! He has picked up 8 points so far, recently taking out Dharmaraj 'Anna' Cherlathan and extending Jaipur's lead.

8-17 Guess what, folks. That narrow lead is not so narrow anymore. Haryana put itself in trouble as a defender went out of bounds and there was just one Steelers man left on the mat. It didn't take much time to take him out too and ALL OUT!

First Half:

With a tackle on Selvamani, Jaipur Pink Panther ends the first half with a 8-13 lead.

This match, much like the season, has been about the defending. And a late flourish from the Pink Panthers gives them a crucial lead as they go into the second half. But they wouldn't sit pretty yet, because we know how his game goes. All you need is one good raid or one super tackle to turn things around.

8-12 Deepak Niwas Hooda is given two points for his raid. But Haryana asks for a review. The replays look okay. He has just made it across the line - by a millimeter, probably. The review is unsuccessful and Jaipur with the biggest lead so far. This match was missing a good raid.

8-10 Haryana's Selvamani is helping out not just wiith raids but back in his own court as well. He's picked up two tackle points. In fact, both defences have been great. Could explain the slow scoring.

7-9 We're into the final five minutes in the first half and I can't decide which way this match is going. Both teams look strong and cautious. They don't have to go all in yet. It's smart play. Haryana won't be worries yet.

5-8 That's a critical point for Jaipur! Naveen's taken out on a do-or-die raid and Jaipur is up only by a narrow margin with 9 minutes left in the first half.

5-6 Cautious start and nothing much to separate the two yet. It's a do-or-die raid for Sachin Narwal. His speed and agility forces a mistake from Vinay who steps out of bounds and that's a point for Jaipur. Selvamani gets a raid point for Haryana and then the Steelers defence picks up a tackle point to stay in the game.

2-5 Deepak Niwas Hooda picks up two points on a raid and Selvamani gets a point on a Haryana raid.

1-3 What a tackle by Amit Hooda! Grabs a hold of the Haryana raider and the rest of the team is quick to block any escape route.

1-2 Haryana gets on the scoreboard with a brilliant tackle on Deepak Hooda. Naveen's back on the mat.

0-2 No raid points yet. But Jaipur takes a 2-0 lead with a bonus point.

0-1 The first point of the match goes to Jaipur! Sandeep Dhull with an ankle hold on Haryana's Naveen.

0-0 3..2...1! Jaipur Pink Panthers will make the first raid. Deepak Niwas Hooda comes in.

7:27pm: We're all set! The teams have entered the court and it's almost time for the countdown. Celebrity watch! Amitabh Bachchan is among the crowd. No points for guessing who he's supporting.

Let's look at the starters for both the teams:

Jaipur Pink Panthers: Deepak Hooda, Sunil Siddhgavali, Vishal, Deepak Hooda, Sachin Narwal, Amit Hooda, Sandeep Dhull

Haryana Steelers: Naveen, Vikas Kale, Parveen, Selvamani K, Vinay, Sunil, Dharmaraj Cherlathan


With two wins in two so far in Pro Kabaddi Season 7, Jaipur Pink Panthers is enjoying the perfect start to the season and will look to keep up the momentum when it meets Haryana Steelers. Steelers, meanwhile, has had a mixed start, winning its first and losing its second game. Rakesh Kumar’s men will surely look to get back to winning ways on Wednesday.
