Vinay and Shivam Patare Power Haryana Steelers to PKL 10 Finals, Upset Jaipur Pink Panthers

In a thrilling encounter in the 2nd semi-final of Pro Kabaddi Season 10, the Haryana Steelers emerged victorious against the defending champions, Jaipur Pink Panthers, with a final score of 31-27. The star performers for Haryana Steelers were Vinay, who scored a crucial Super 10 and turned the tide in the second half, and Shivam Patare, who contributed with 7 valuable raid points.

The match began with a close neck-and-neck battle. Arjun Deshwal initiated the scoring for Jaipur with a touch-point. While Vinay was tackled by Sahul Kumar in his first raid attempt for Haryana. Both teams scored alternately, with Arjun, Bhavani Rajput, and Ajith Kumar contributing for Jaipur, and Vinay and Patare keeping Haryana in the game.

The turning point arrived towards the end of the first half. With Haryana leading 13-18, Patare stepped up for a raid and successfully earned a crucial point. This point improved Haryana's lead to 6 points at the end of the first half.


Arjun Deshwal continued to be a bright spot for Jaipur, scoring raid points consistently, but Haryana's defence tightened, with Rahul Sethpal and Mohit Nandal making crucial tackles. Vinay continued to impress, scoring another point in a do-or-die raid and inflicting an All-Out on Jaipur by forcing his way past the defence with just two players remaining on the mat.

With the momentum firmly in their favour, Haryana never relinquished their lead. Patare added valuable points through his raids, while the defenders continued to put pressure on Jaipur's raiders. Despite a late surge from Jaipur, including a bonus point from Arjun, Haryana held their nerve and secured a well-deserved victory, booking their place in the finals against Puneri Paltan.

Vinay, with his crucial Super 10 and timely interventions, was undoubtedly the star performer for the Haryana Steelers. His raiding skills were instrumental in guiding his team to victory. This unexpected win over the defending champions will be a huge confidence booster for Haryana Steelers as they head into the finals.
