When both these sides met earlier this season, the Titans won 40-29.
The Steelers are coming off a huge 36-59 loss at the hands of the Bengaluru Bulls courtesy Pawan Sehrawat's massive 39 point-haul.
The Titans meanwhile lost 50-53 to the Puneri Paltan ending their playoffs hopes for this season, making this match a dead rubber since Haryana have already qualified.
Team News - Haryana Steelers
The Steelers had a lot going on for them on the raiding front with Prashanth Kumar Rai shining with 17 raid points. Vikash Khandola and Vinay too had decent games. But in defence, Haryana were unable to cope up with the might of Pawan Sehrawat. They were able to manage just 3 tackle points in total, something they'll want to correct in today's game. Considering the balance of the team, they're unlikely to make any changes.
Predicted Starting 7: Dharmaraj Cheralathan (C), Vikas Kandola, Prashanth Kumar Rai, Vinay, Vikas Kale, Ravi Kumar and Sunil.
Team News - Telugu Titans
The Titans, knowing they are going to be knocked out of the tournament, decided to rest their corners and give opportunities to some young talents. The plan did work well as the Titans shined on both raiding and defending fronts despite losing the match. Rakesh Gowda was brilliant in the raiding department while Farhad Milaghardhan shined from the bench. Aakash Arsul was very good in the right cover and so was Krushna Madane in the left corner.
It's difficult to say what changes they might make to their side but Farhad Milaghardhan could find his way back to the side, probably in place of Manish.
Predicted Starting 7: Siddharth Desai (C), Krushna Madane, Rajnish, Manish/Farhad Milaghardhan, Aakash Arsul, Akash Choudhary and Rakesh Gowda.
