The match number 73 of PKL 2021 between Haryana Steelers and UP Yoddha Yoddha is a very important clash for both teams. A win here would propel the Yoddhas to the top of the table, while a win for the Steelers would put them in the top 4.
Both the UP Yoddha and Haryana Steelers started their PKL 2021 campaign in a shaky note, but have since found their best. The defensive unit seems to be the strength of both sides, but their inconsistency has cost them multiple matches.
While the Yoddhas have seen Pardeep Narwal playing himself back to form in the past two matches, the emergence of Surender Gill as the first-raider makes them a force to reckon with. The Steelers themselves have not done badly in the raiding department with the trio of Vikas Kandola, Meetu Sharma and Rohit Gulia combining to pocket crucial points.
Head to Head
The Yoddha and Steelers are neck and neck when it comes to their head to head encounters. In fact, the last time the two teams met, the match ended in a tie earlier this season.
