UP Yoddha will look for revival on their home turf as they take on Haryana Steelers in their second game in Lucknow.
After a disappointing first match in their home leg, Lucknow will be desperate to set the record straight against Haryana. Rishank Devadiga will need to carry his form from the narrow loss against U Mumba last night into the game and hope that he receives enough support from the rest of his team to guarantee victory this time around. Skipper Nitin Tomar will also need to up his game against the Steelers if he expects his side to get back to winning ways soon.
In the defence, veteran Jeeva Kumar is in charge of the proceedings alongside Nitesh Kumar and defensive all-rounders Rajesh Narwal and Pankaj.
Haryana will be aiming to climb to second spot in Zone A with a win against Lucknow. They head into the contest on the back of a tie with Tamil Thalaivas, which also happened to be their second draw in the league this season. Wazir Singh, Surjeet Singh and Vikash Kandola can be expected to shoulder most of the responsibility in attack for the Steelers. The defense will be manned by the ever-reliable defensive duo of Mohit Chhillar and Surender Nada who have played together since the inception of the league. They are assisted in the defence by Neeraj and Rakesh Kumar Singh.
