Following their defeat last night against U.P. Yoddha, Telugu Titans face another stern test against current Zone B leaders Bengaluru Bulls at the Rajiv Gandhi Indoor Stadium in Vizag on Wednesday. A victory for the visitors will see them go 13 points clear at the top of the zone standings, putting them in a strong position to qualify for the Playoffs.
And while the Titans' play is built hugely on the defensive work put in by the Iranian Mighani, here's an example of occasions when their attack might just be starting to come to the fore in matches as well.

The two teams last met in Bengaluru Bulls’ home leg where Telugu Titans succumbed to a 34-26 defeat.
Abozar Mohajermighani – Telugu Titans
With eight tackle points in his last two matches, Abozar Mohajermighani is well and truly back to his very best in Telugu Titans’ home leg. Bengaluru Bulls boast of three outstanding raiders in Rohit Kumar, Kashiling Adake and Pawan Kumar Sehrawat and hence, Mighani’s performance on the night against Bengaluru Bulls’ potent raiding trio will be a huge factor in Telugu Titans’ quest for a third victory at home.
Pawan Kumar Sehrawat – Bengaluru Bulls
Pawan Kumar Sehrawat has been magnificent in Season 6 for Bengaluru Bulls and currently ranks third in the list of Best Raiders this campaign. The raider let skipper Rohit Kumar take the lead during his team’s home leg but, given his form and numbers this campaign, Sehrawat will be raring to take the mat by storm in Vizag and score his ninth Super 10 of the season in a crucial Southern Derby.
