Good evening everyone...
Welcome to the LIVE coverage of tonight's’ second match between hosts Telugu Titans and season 2 champions U Mumba at the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium, Hyderabad at the ongoing Star Sports Pro Kabaddi League season 4.
Hosts Telugu Titans have been on the wrong side of the result in most of their matches in season 4, losing 4 of their 5 matches by a margin of lesser than 7 points! Their only win came against Bengal Warriors in their 1st home of the season. Their star raider Rahul Chaudhari has continued his sublime form into the season 4, gathering a whopping total of 35 raid points in 5 matches (3rd highest in the season 4 standings). The 42-year old battle hardened veteran Dharmaraj Cheralathan has been given the responsibility of leading this new looking Titans side, but up till now, his game plan has just evaded the team in the dying minutes of the match!
On the other hand, 3-time PKL finalists U Mumba are sitting comfortably on the 3rd place in the standings with 3 wins out of their 5 matches so far in the campaign. They have lost just 2 matches till now, got hammered by Puneri Paltan in their 2nd match which was also their 1st defeat in the Maharashtrian Derby and lost a closely fought encounter 34-36 against defending champions Patna Pirates. Their star raiders Rishank Devadiga and Anup Kumar have gathered a total of 31 and 22 raid points so far in the tournament, and again a lot would depend on their performance against the spirited Titans.
The two sides have met each other on 6 occasions in Pro Kabaddi League history with U Mumba winning on 3 of those occasions and Telugu winning 2 of those while drawing 1.
