The return of Vikash Kandola to the Haryana Steelers has helped them turn a corner and become a very dangerous side in the Pro Kabaddi League. He already has three Super-10’s to his name and is promising to end up close to the top of the raiders list this season.
He has been quite well supported by Naveen and Vinay, both of whom are pretty inexperienced when compared to some of the other raiders in the league.
These three raiders are going to be aware of the Telugu Titans raiding prowess and will have to wary of not committing any mistakes.
Dharmraj Cheralathan has been very good in his new aggressive avatar while Vikas Kale and Kuldeep Singh are also proving their worth on the mat in recent matches.
The Telugu Titans are struggling to break away from the bottom of the table although there is no doubt that the quality of their performances has improved in recent games. A closely fought tie against the Bengal Warriors was probably the right result for the match but we are sure the Telugu Titans would have come away the unhappier side.
Time is running out for the Telugu Titans and they need to start winning some matches immediately.
The onus is going to come once again on Siddharth Desai, the best raider for the Telugu Titans but a shadow of what he was in the previous season. He has been getting better in recent matches but we are still waiting to see his true self.
Suraj Desai and Rajnish have been given chances to cement the secondary raider slot and one of them needs to step up big time.
The defense of the Telugu Titans is not going to be a problem in this match. Abozar Mohajermighani and Vishal Bhardwaj are going to be the players to watch out for. Vishal Bhardwaj has 26 tackle points to his name, the second-most in the PKL and just four points behind Sandeep Kumar Dhull.
If Vishal Bhardwaj is able to stop Vikash Kandola from running rampant then the Telugu Titans can target a win in this match.
The Telugu Titans have conceded the second most number of points and the third most all-outs in PKL 2019. The Haryana Steelers are averaging 16.43 raid points per game, the fourth-best in the league, and will be hoping to put the Telugu Titans under pressure from the start.
We think the Telugu Titans are going to be able to win this game against the Haryana Steelers thanks to the great form of Vishal Bhardwaj.
Bet on the Telugu Titans to win.
