The Telugu Titans will take on the Bengaluru Bulls in the second Southern Derby of the season as the two sides will look to continue their fierce rivalry at the Patliputra Sports Complex, Patna on Thursday, 8th August at 7:30 PM IST as part of Pro Kabaddi 2019.
The Bengaluru Bulls come off a thrilling win over the Bengal Warriors thanks to a mammoth 29-point raiding effort from 'Hi-Flyer' Pawan Sehrawat while Saurabh Nandal sizzled with 6 tackle points.
The Telugu Titans, meanwhile almost earned their first win against U.P Yoddha only for a technical point to be awarded against them to make it a 20-20 tie.
With two teams hungry for a win and plenty of quality on offer, this promises to be a cracker of a contest.
Key Players: Siddharth Desai, Abozar Mighani and Vishal Bhardwaj
The Telugu Titans did do pretty well from a defensive point of view against U.P and Abozar Mighani in the right corner finally came good with 4 tackle points while his partner, Vishal Bhardwaj in the left corner was quiet. Farhad Milaghardhan in the left cover did well and so did his partner C Arun. This defense will be wary of Pawan's prowess and need to stop them if they want to keep the Bulls under control.
Siddharth Desai did do well in the final raid but hasn't come alive this season and when Suraj Desai too can't see a way through, this raiding unit lacks bite. Rakesh Gowda can replace the under performing Amit Kumar while all the fans will want Siddharth to come out with a strong performance.
Key Players: Pawan Sehrawat, Mahender Singh and Amit Sheoran
While the Bulls must rejoice after their victory over Bengal, they need to address certain fleeting issues in their side. Pawan has got no support from skipper Rohit Kumar and didn't get any from Mohit Sehrawat and the team needs to bring back Sumit Singh who did much better than Mohit.
Defensively, the left side of the defense looked vulnerable and Mahender Singh in the left cover and Amit Sheoran in the left corner need to come good in this match. Saurabh Nandal in the right corner put in a strong performance while Ashish Sangwan can make a return to the side.
Predicted starting 7s
Telugu Titans: Abozar Mighani (C), Vishal Bhardwaj, Siddharth Desai, Suraj Desai, Farhad Milaghardhan, C. Arun and Rakesh Gowda.
