A loss in this match will end any sliver of hope that the Telugu Titans may have to try and turn things around in this dismal season. They are going to hope once again for something special from Siddharth Desai as they go into this must-win match.
Siddharth Desai is going to have to the bulk of the scoring himself since the other raiders have not quite stood up so far. Suraj Desai and Armaan are two other players that could be given a bigger role in this match to try and stay abreast with the free-scoring Bengal Warriors.
Vishal Bhardwaj is going to have a tough task to try and stop the trio or even quartet of raiders that the Bengal Warriors unleash. Abozar Mohajermighani has not been the defender he was in the previous season and that is another reason why the Telugu Titans have struggled.
Too much has to change overnight for the Telugu Titans to be able to qualify and we don’t think they have any realistic hopes themselves. Even turning things around for one match against the Bengal Warriors looks difficult.
The Bengal Warriors have been smashing opposing defenses to pieces in their recent matches are now in reach of toppling the league leaders. A win in this match will see the Bengal Warriors go one point clear over Dabang Delhi K.C.
The mode of attack for the Bengal Warriors has been simple. It is one of the few sides that are willing to compromise on the defense a little to pack its side with raiders. Maninder Singh, K Prapanjan, Sukesh Hegde, and Mohammad Nabibakhsh are four potent options at the Bengal Warriors fingertips.
This means that there is always an attacking option to fall back upon but that the defense can struggle on occasions as well.
Mohammad Nabibakhsh is currently doing the job brilliantly as an all-rounder. Rinku Narwal, Baldev Singh, and Jeeva Kumar are the pure defenders in the side rounding thing out.
The Bengal Warriors would like to use its remaining group matches to iron out any weaknesses that may be present in the defense.
The Bengal Warriors hold a massive 8-3 advantage over the Telugu Titans in head to head matches. There have also been an additional four matches which have ended in a tie between these two sides.
We think that the Bengal Warriors are going to be very tough to stop. They have all the momentum on their side and are not under any pressure to win. Maninder Singh is playing as one of the top-raiders of the league and should be able to lead his side to victory in this match as well.
Bet on the Bengal Warriors to win.
