Kandola made his presence felt and combined well with Prashanth Kumar Rai as Haryana Steelers began scoring raid points to tie the contest at 5-5.

However, successful raids by Shrikant Jadhav and a successful tackle by Nitesh ensured that didn’t happen, as Haryana Steelers took just a 16-12 lead into the break.
