UP Yoddha vs Telugu Titans Starting 7:

UP Yoddha - Pardeep Narwal, Ashu Singh, Shubham Kumar, Shrikant Jadhav, Surinder Gill, Nitesh Kumar, Sumit Sangwan

Telugu Titans - Rajnish, Surinder Singh, Prince D, Rohit Kumar, Ankit Beniwal, Akash Choudhary, Sandeep Kandola
Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of Pro Kabaddi 2022 action as UP Yoddha are all set to take on Telugu Titans in Bengaluru. Both the sides presently lie in the lower half of the points table.

UP Yoddha come into this clash on the back of just one win in their last five matches and will hope to get into a good run of form with a victory over the Titans tonight. Pardeep Narwal has been a shadow of himself from the past seasons and will hope to kick his season into full gears. Surinder Gill and Shrikant Jadhav have contributed well alongside the lead raider to keep the UP Yoddha side in hope of a playoff position. The defense will aim to get its act together as the pairing of Nitesh Kumar and Sumit Sangwan will try to repeat their heroics from Pro Kabaddi Season 7.

Telugu Titans, on the other hand, have been severely hit by the absence of their lead raider Siddharth Desai owing to injury. Rohit Kumar is no longer the force on the mat as he was in the previous years. Ankit Beniwal and Rajnish have shown some glimpses of brilliance for the Titans but will need to be more consistent in their performances on the mat.
