Telugu Titans 32-34 Gujarat Giants

The Giants will certainly be relieved to have won this encounter after they suffered a massive scare in the second half. A resurgent Titans side assumed the lead as they inflicted an all-out. However, injury to Rajnish along with some poor defending towards the end of the contest have just allowed the Giants to edge past them by two points. With this win, the Giants jump over U Mumba and sit at the seventh position with 49 points while Telugu Titans are officially eliminated from the tournament! A season to forget for them while the Giants continue in their journey to break into the top-six. 
40' Do-or-die raid for the Titans and Galla Raju perishes! Girish Ernak runs around and catches Raju blindsided! Sends him spiralling out of bounds!

Telugu Titans 14-14 Gujarat Giants

The contest started off with raiders from both sides picking up quick points after which the contest settled down. Rajnish did all the scoring for the Titans for the first five minutes following which their defense arrived to the party. The Titans and the Giants, both had opportunities to inflict the all-out on their opposition but poor defending let the other side make a comeback. The Giants will still be sniffing an all-out early in the second half as the Titans are down to three men. Rajnish has performed well so far with 7 points in the first half itself while Rakesh S has five to his name. A mouth-watering second half is on the card!

Right then, the Telugu Titans have had an absolutely torrid run this edition and are all but eliminated from the tournament. With just one win from seventeen fixtures, the Titans have dearly missed the services of Siddharth Desai, who was expected to single-handedly take the side to victory. Nonetheless, in his absence, the Titans have put in pretty decent performances but being the young and inexperienced side that they are, they have succumbed to pressure in the second half and let gone of their lead on multiple occasions. However, the Titans will now look to finish the tournament on a high and give their fans something to cheer about. 

The Gujarat Giants, on the other hand, are a strong defensive side and have not relied on the raiding department much. They've had a topsy-turvy last few games, winning two and losing two out of the four contests that they were a part of. Pardeep Kumar has been an emerging sensation in the raiding department while Sunil and Pravesh Bhainswal are starting to get points under their belt now. Rakesh Narwal and Ajay Kumar will once again look to share riding responsibilities and take their side to victory.
