Telugu Titans 25-43 Tamil Thalaivas

Joint-best performance of this season from Sagar as he finishes the game with as many as 9 tackle points! 13 raid points for the Titans throughout this contest while the Thalaivas' defuse alone picked up 17 tackle points! As comprehensive a show if there was any and the Thalaivas have added a massive win to their name to jump up to the fifth position in the points table. Yet another poor outing for the Titans and hopes of making it to the playoffs are quickly running out for them. They will certainly hope to regroup and come back stronger in the next contest.

HALF TIME!

Telugu Titans 10-22 Tamil Thalaivas

A clinical showing from the Thalaivas post what was a tightly-contested first ten minutes of the contest. Their defense has been absolutely rock-solid tonight and have completely blown away the Telugu raiders. Sagar has picked up a High 5 in the first half already while every other defender apart from Mohit has at least a point to their name. In the raiding department, Manjeet has starred with 7 points while Ajinkya Pawar has picked up 5 points. As for the Titans, Rohit Kumar was the lone ranger with 3 raid points but suffered an injury scare in the twentieth minute of the contest. It will be interesting to see whether the raider takes part in proceedings going further. Their corners are performing decently but the lack of a lead raider is hurting the Titans. Will the Thalaivas cruise to a comfortable win? Stay tuned to find out!

Right then, the Telugu Titans have had an extremely poor run in this tournament and have just a solitary win to their name from fourteen encounters. The Titans are reeling at the bottom of the points table and have just 22 points to their name from 14 encounters. The absence of Siddharth Desai has indeed hurt the Titans considerably and they will certainly have to a win a majority, if not all of their matches from here on if they are to stand a chance of qualifying this season. 

The Tamil Thalaivas, on the other hand, have fallen off after making a decent recovery in the middle phase of the tournament. They now find themselves placed tenth with 39 points and a win will bolster their standings by a hefty margin, taking them straight into the top-six. The Thalaivas have had a topsy-turvy campaign and come into this match on the back of a tie, a loss and a win in their last three games respectively. They will once again turn to Manjeet and Ajinkya Pawar to get the points in the raiding department while Sagar and Surjeet Singh will be their key men in the defense. M Abishek put in a good performance in the last match and will be expected to retain his place in the side instead of a third raider.
