Vikash Kandola was the star for Haryana Steelers as they beat neighbours Dabang Delhi K.C. 36-33 in Match 68 of Pro Kabaddi League Season 8 at The Sheraton Grand, Whitefield, Bengaluru.
The Steelers captain scored a Super 10 (13 points) in a dominant display by his team. Coach Rakesh Kumar’s Haryana had a brief scare in the game when 5 players entered the lobby without a touch on the raider, but they kept calm to ensure they came away with all 5 points.
Delhi desperately missed their star raider Naveen Kumar’s services.
