Telugu Titans vs Bengal Warriors Match Prediction: Who will win today's Pro Kabaddi 2017 match?
Post the Diwali break yesterday, the second last match in the fifth edition of the Pro Kabaddi League will feature the Bengal Warriors locking horns against the Telugu Titans at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex in Pune.
While the Bengal Warriors have already qualified for the Super-Playoffs which will commence on Monday in Mumbai while the Telugu Titans will be playing for glory, hunting for a win to end their season on a positive note.
The Warriors are coming into this match on the back of a 34-30 win against the Tamil Thalaivas while the Telugu Titans slumped to a narrow defeat against the Haryana Steelers in their last fixture during the Jaipur leg.
The head-to-head between these two sides stands in favour of the Eastern force, with Bengal coming out on top in both the previous matches.
The Bengal Warriors will be led by captain Surjeet, who picked up a High-5 in the last match and will be eager to put his best foot forward in the run-up to the playoffs. He will be supported by the likes of Srikanth Tewthia in the far right corner and Ran Singh in the left corner position.
The attack will be led by the talismanic Maninder Singh, who has been brilliant over the course of the season. Deepak Narwal and Bhupender Singh will support the front line raider with their strides in the rival half. Vinod Kumar will come into action in the capacity of an all-rounder while there are chances that the coach might field a second string side, giving rest to some of the main players ahead of the important qualifier.
The Telugu Titans, on the other hand, will be led by the poster-boy of Indian kabaddi, Rahul Chaudhari who has picked up 188 points so far and will be looking to increase the tally and touch the 200 mark. He will be supported in the attack by Nilesh Salunkhe, who also picked up a Super-10 in the last match alongside Mohsen Maghsoudlou. The defence will be manned by the likes of Rohit Rana, Sombir, Vishal Bhardwaj and Iranian Farhad Milaghardhan.
Telugu Titans vs Bengal Warriors match prediction
If one has to call the match, it would be in favour of the Bengal Warriors given their all-round performance with each player contributing to the scoreline which is not the case with the Titans, where the raiders have to do the bulk of the scoring.
