Tamil Thalaivas beat Telugu Titans 39-26 at the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium in Hyderabad on Sunday in the first Southern Derby of season 7. Telugu Titans, who lost the season opener to U Mumba, were looking to bounce back from that defeat but were completely outclassed.

All eyes were on Rahul Chaudhari, who represented Tamil Thalaivas and faced his former team - one that he played for in the first six seasons of the tournament - and the man did not disappoint. Chaudhari picked up a Super 10 for his team and took them to victory. Manjeet Chhillar also starred for Tamil Thalaivas by racking up tackle points.

Season 6's emerging player Siddharth Desai had another ordinary night as he spent more than 10 minutes off court and failed to have the kind of impact Telugu wanted.

Earlier in the day, Gujarat Fortunegiants overturned the result of last season's finale as they thrashed Bengaluru Bulls 42-24.
