The Haryana Steelers are now up against the Gujarat FortuneGiants in the seventh season of the Pro Kabaddi League 2019 in the New Delhi on 28th of August. The Steelers have gained momentum after winning against the U Mumba and Bengal Warriors in the consecutive matches and they will even certainly be looking to build on their current form.
Vinay, who has been Haryana third-best raider in the Pro Kabaddi Season 7, expressed that patience was the key in their previous matches against the Bengal Warriors.
“One of the positives in the win against Bengal Warriors for us was that we were patient and controlled our performance. We didn’t hesitate in any point of the match and executed our plans well,” said Vinay.
The 20 years old added that the guidance of the senior players has helped him become a better player, “I am very excited to play for Haryana Steelers. I have understood that, if I follow whatever our captain Dharmaraj Cheralathan and our lead raider Vikash Kandola tell me to do, my game will always be on point,” said the young raider.
Haryana Steelers and Gujarat Fortunegiants faced off against each other on three occasions in the last season. While the Steelers won their first encounter 32-35, the Gujarat Fortunegiants won the next two matches 40-31 and 47-37 respectively. Haryana has a well-settled side this season and therefore they will be hoping to improve their record against Gujarat.
“Gujarat have a good defensive unit on both sides of the mat. However, we will focus on our strengths and look to play according to our strategies,” said Vinay.
