The Vizag leg of the Pro Kabaddi League Season 6 carries on as the second day of action sees the home side Telugu Titans take on Season 1 champions Jaipur Pink Panthers at the Rajiv Gandhi Indoor Stadium in Vishakhapatnam.

The home side Telugu Titans began the home leg campaign with a strong performance against last season' finalists Gujarat Fortunegiants. The match ended in a close affair as the Titans weren't able to make key moments count and lost out in the final raid of the match by a margin of two points.

Telugu Titans will hope to carry on the positive momentum from the match as they were strong in all departments on the mat. Rahul Chaudhari missed out on a Super 10 but will be raring to go in front of the home crowd as the Titans still have a numerical shot at making the playoffs.

Jaipur Pink Panthers are out of the race for a playoffs finish as they languish at the bottom of the Zone A standings with 20 points from thirteen matches played so far. They have a single win from their previous six matches and will hope to salvage some pride as their home leg approaches next week. Deepak Niwas Hooda has been a standout performer for them with consecutive Super 10s but he hasn't found any support from his fellow raiders as well as the defence, which has seemed timid despite the presence of stalwarts like Mohit Chillar and Sandeep Kumar Dhull.
