Good evening everyone..
Welcome to the LIVE coverage of tonight’s only match between hosts Telugu Titans and season 2 finalist Bengaluru Bulls at the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium, Hyderabad in the ongoing Star Sports Pro Kabaddi League season 4.
The hosts had a mixed start to their season 4 campaign, losing their first 3 matches in a row, however, the Titans are fresh from hammering Bengal Warriors 35-18 in their most recent encounter and thus registered their 1st win of the tournament. Despite nurturing a shoulder injury, their star raider Rahul Chaudhari was seen in sublime form against the Warriors as he completed his 19th Super 10 (scoring 10 raid points in a single match), the most by any player in the PKL history. With this victory, the Hyderabad-based franchise moved up to the 7th place in the standings, just a point adrift of the Eagles in the 6th place.
Similarly, the Bulls are also fresh from registering their 2nd win of the campaign, winning a thriller of a match against the table toppers Puneri Paltan at the Gachibowli indoor Stadium. The most expensive buy of the season 4, Mohit Chhillar justified the whopping amount of price tag on him with a mesmerising performance against the Paltans as he went on to gather 7 tackle points and was successful in keeping their star players Ajay Thakur and Manjeet Chhillar silent throughout the match. The newest addition to the squad, Rohit Kumar emerged once again as the likely hero for the Bulls as his magnificent raids in the last few minutes of the match rescued the victory for the Bulls.
The Bangalore-based franchise has a slight advantage over their opponents if we consider their head to head record, the two sides have met on 7 occasions with the Bulls winning the tie on 4 of them while the Titans winning the tie on 2 occasions and one match ended in a draw.
Players to watch out for:
Telugu Titans: Rahul Chaudhari, Sandeep Narwal
Bengaluru Bulls: Rohit Kumar, Mohit Chhillar
