From the auctions, the Titans roped in the likes of Siddharth Desai, defensive lynchpins Abozar Mighani and Vishal Bhardwaj. Set to play their first match against U Mumba in the opening fixture of season 7, Siddharth Desai will hope to repeat his magic at the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium in Hyderabad.
The Titans' home leg will begin on 20th July and culminate on 26th July 2019, in what promises to be a home leg full of action. As we build up to Pro Kabaddi 2019, here is a look at the probable playing seven of the Telugu Titans.
Right Corner: Abozar Mohajermighani
A fearless right corner from Iran, Abozar Mighani had a blockbuster debut back in season 5 with the Gujarat Fortune Giants. He was the fifth best defender of the season with 65 tackle points to his name from 24 matches at an average of 2.71 tackle points and became a household name with his skill set.
Ahead of season 6, the Telugu Titans signed Abozar Mighani and the move proved to be a masterstroke as he formed a fabulous partnership with young Vishal Bhardwaj and led the defensive unit of the team brilliantly. He scored 56 tackle points in 21 matches and earned a status as the prominent defender for the team.
For the upcoming season, Abozar will also be leading the Titans and will be backed to produce a top show.
