Telugu Titans have had a disappointing season so far. Despite having names like Siddharth Desai and Vishal Bhardwaj, they have failed to get a single victory and languish at the bottom of the table. Suraj Desai had one good match but lack of a collective performance from the entire unit has cost them so far.
However, the firepower in their ranks should give them the confidence that they can make a strong comeback. Telugu Titans fans will also hope the likes of Abozar Mohajermighani, C Arun and others can soon start operating at their optimum potential in defence and help turn things around.
UP Yoddha got their first win of the season in their third match and the resurgence was led by their defence. Left corner Sumit bagged six tackle points while their captain Nitesh Kumar ar right corner and right cover Ashu Singh worked well together to give boost to UP.
The revival also came with the return of Rishank Devadiga from injury. Led by Rishank, their raiding unit including Monu Goyat and Shrikant Jadhav, also combined well to get UP the win. They would hope for a similar all-round performance against Telugu Titans.
