FULL TIME! Telugu Titans 29-34 Bengaluru Bulls

Bengaluru Bulls at the Kanteerava - a never-ending love story! The Bulls have kicked-off their campaign with a win in front of their home crowd and against a formidable Titans side. A topsy-turvy game if ever there was one, with the Titans taking lead initially in both halves before the Bulls made a charging comeback on the back of some terrific all-round performance. Contibutions in all departments from the Bulls, the only cause of concern being their right cover. A team-effort sealing the deal for them. Meanwhile, Kandola, similar to Guman Singh earlier today, did not turn up to the party after being paid the big bucks. However, Neeraj Narwal's terrific form is a positive the Bulls will take home. The Titans, having some big names, could not hold their nerve too well and in the end, it is perhaps their raiding that let them down. They will have some time to fix that while the Bulls will be elated after the win.

Plenty of experience on the side of the Titans and their defense, especially, is living upto the lofty expectations.

Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of Match 2 of Pro Kabaddi League 2022 between the Bengaluru Bulls and the Telugu Titans at the Shree Kanteerava Indoor Stadium, Bengaluru. As both sides look to begin their campaigns with a win, we are in for an absolute treat in this contest! 

The Bengaluru Bulls will be playing at their home venue and will have the complete backing of the crowd right up until October 28, when the action will shift to Pune. The Bulls will be looking forward to taking maximum advantage of this additional factor which goes in their favour. Having let-go of Pawan Sehrawat, the Bulls have now put their trust in Vikash Kandola, whose ardent desire to be coached by Randhir Singh Sehrawat has come to fruition. 

Lanky raider Bharat alongside Neeraj Narwal complete a formidable trio of raiders. The Bulls defense is quite a strong one too and they might just have the problem of plenty. Skipper Mahender Singh will man the left cover and will have the difficult decision of choosing between Saurabh Nandal and Aman to play the left corner. The right side of the defense looks pretty solid too with Mayur Kadam in the covers. A point to ponder upon will be whether the Bulls will play veteran all-rounder Rajesh Narwal, who was added to the squad post the auction. All-in-all, the Bulls look all set to charge ahead. 

The Telugu Titans had one of the best auctions ahead of the season. They have assembled what seems to be one of the strongest sides on paper. Monu Goyat, Ankit Beniwal, Abhishek Singh, Rajnish, Adarsh T, Mohsen Magshoudlou and Siddharth Desai are what make up what is an envious list of raiders. Their defense is no less, consisting of the likes of skipper Ravinder Pahal, Surjeet Singh, Parvesh Bhainswal and Vishal Bharadwaj. They have quite a staggering squad at their disposal and only time will tell whether having a host of superstars donning their jersey will pay rich dividends. 

Right then, sets up nicely for quite an exciting contest, doesn't it? Well, don't go anywhere! Sit back, relax and enjoy as I, Maanas Upadhyay, take you through all that transpires over the course of the this game!
