That's all from us today, thank you for tuning in! See you as we bring you the best coverage from the Nagpur leg that begins tomorrow.
...
The Pirates get the win but they did let their guard down towards the end of the match. The Titans salvage the solitary loss point and Rahul Chaudhari does reach a Super 10, but it was another disappointing outing for the men in yellow as they end their home leg with five straight losses.
...
And this strategy works! The Titans get their man and with the very last raid, manage to get the deficit down to seven points. 
...
The last raid and eight points the margin. The Titans defense guards the baulk line to ensure the Pirates raider is not let off. 
...
Rahul Chaudhari goes in once again and after a review gets two raid points. Bonus plus touch.
...
Nilesh Salunke with a rash challenge and Monu Goyat gets two raid points. 
...
Rahul with a quick blank raid, that sends in Monu Goyat.
...
And Rahul gets another touch point. Can they reduce the gap to seven or less?
...
And Pardeep is sent out yet again. Rohit Rana with a monstrous dash.
...
Another quick point for Rahul Chaudhari. A huge kick on the left corner. 
...
ALL OUT!

The lone Pirate comes into raid and is stopped in style. Rakesh Kumar with a fine body block. Can the Titans salvage something from this game?
...
Another point for Rakshit. Uses the running hand touch and gets another Patna man out.
...
Rakshith comes in with a 1v3 situation. He succeeds in getting a touch and then skips away in style. Just two Pirates remain on the mat.
...
And Pardeep is sent out. A combination of an ankle hold and dash is enough to send the raider flying off court.
...
Rahul gets us underway again and he strikes! Evades an ankle hold from the right corner.
...
TIMEOUT! Surely no way back for the Titans?
...
NIlesh Salunke rescues one point. The left corner comes in with a back hold but the raider turns in time and wriggles away from the tackle.
...
Monu Goyat adds to his increasing tally. A fine toe touch on the Titans centre.
...
SUPER TACKLE!

Rahul Chaudhari is stopped once again in a 1v3 situation. A fine ankle hold from Jaideep and the raider has no response.
...
RAKESH! YOU BEAUTY!

Fine ankle hold on the Patna raider, who inches towards the midline. But support comes in from the Titans defence and it is the Telugu side who get the point.
...
SUPER TACKLE!

Patna pounce on Nilesh Salunke. The Titans had a chance to fight back but it is wasted.
...
Pardeep is then brought down as well. Goes for the frog jump but the defender grabs on to his ankles.
...
RAHUL! Where were you all this while?

A vintage raid by the Raid Machine. Vishal Mane with a dash from the cover but Rahul reaches the midline with a loooong stretch of his left arm.

The Pirates skipper is now up to 12 points for the match. Plenty of time to win many more.
