What an encounter we have on our hands! A bottom-placed Telugu Titans performing like a top-six side! Even without any star players in the raiding department, the Titans' players chipped in with single point contributions and managed to get the lead going into the second half. The lead kept changing hands and one could never be sure as to which side will go into the second half with a lead. A tad poor from the U.P. outfit and they are leaking too many points in the defensive scheme of things. However, we can certainly not count them out of this contest. Which side will finish on top?

Welcome ladies and gentlemen to Sportskeeda's live coverage of the Pro Kabaddi League, 2022. UP Yoddha will take on the Telugu Titans in Match 96 of the tournament at the Sheraton Grand, Whitefield, Bengaluru.

U.P. Yoddha have had a decent season so far and are currently placed eighth with 42 points to their name from sixteen encounters. The Yoddha outfit has not had the greatest of runs recently and are on a four-match losing streak. It will be up to the raiding trio of Surender Gill, Shrikant Jadhav and Pardeep Narwal to take them to another win over a demoralised Titans side. The Telugu Titans also have not picked up a win for a duration of four games after registering their first win of the tournament earlier this year. They are reeling at the bottom of the table with 22 points from 15 matches and will certainly need something nothing short of magical from here on to take them to the playoffs.

Right then, we have an interesting contest on our hands. Will we see a resurgent Titans team or will they let U.P. roll over them? Let's find out! All you need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy as I, Maanas Upadhyay, take you through all that unfolds over the course of this contest!
