Telugu Titans are chasing a much elusive win since last eight games in the league. The Rahul Chaudhari-led side has tried out various changes in its line-up but it is yet to figure out a settled combination. The team has looked to be overly dependent on the heroics of their skipper as fellow raiders have failed to deliver consistently. Hence, we can expect a few changes in the squad by the management, in an attempt to end the franchise’s worst run. Season 2 champions U Mumba haven’t had a promising campaign either. Despite prominent names in the attack, the Mumbai outfit has failed to live up to its expectations. The Anup Kumar-led franchise is going into this game after beating UP Yoddha. The thrilling contest saw Shabeer Bappu coming back to life. They are likely to replace Shiv Om and N.Renjith with D.Suresh Kumar and Shrikant Jadhav.
Telugu Titans: Rahul Chaudhari, Sombir, Rohit Rana, Vikas, Nilesh Salunke, Rakesh Kumar, Vishal Bharadwaj
Possible Substitutes: Farhad Milaghardan; Mohsen Maghsoudlou; Vikrant; Vinoth Kumar; Munish
U Mumba: Shabeer Bappu, D. Suresh Kumar, Kuldeep Singh, Kashiling Adake, Anup Kumar, Surinder Singh, N. Renjith
Possible Substitutes: Dong Ju Hong; Shabeer Bappu; Shrikant Jadhav; Shiv Om; Darshan Kadian
Players who cannot be ignored:
Rahul Chaudhari: The Poster Boy is Telugu’s one-man army. This season, Rahul has averaged around 7.5 points per game. Expect him to go all guns blazing against Mumbai.
Anup Kumar: The India skipper showcased his ability to pick bonus points and toe touch points with ease, against UP Yoddha. Anup’s tactical mind is enough to instill fear in the minds of defenders. This season, he has scored close to 6 raid points per game.
Alternatives that you could consider: Kashiling Adake, Nilesh Salunke
Happy Hunting!!! Kabaddi... kabaddi.... kabaddi....
