Telugu Titans beat U Mumba in their final league game

TELUGU TITANS beat U Mumba easily at 46-25 in the battle of the benches to finish their campaign with a win in Season 2 of Star Sports Pro Kabaddi today at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Kreeda Nagari here today.  U Mumba finished on top with 50 points after the end of the match which was of academic interest. It was the superb all-round display of the bearded who had six raiding and three defence points. He had splendid support from Rohit Baliyan 8 (7 raid and 1 bonus) and Prashant Rai 9 (8 raid and 1 bonus) points. The winners were 20-12 up at half-time with one all-out scored in the 15th minute.

U Mumba who had won yesterday against Puneri Paltan were not able to get their act going though they tried to keep pace with their rivals up to 9-9. This was possible due to the efforts of Captain Pradeep Kumar and Bhupender who had four and two points to their credit.

U Mumba faded after the break as Prashant Rai and Rohit Baliyan stepped up the gas and a few failed attempts by the rival defence especially Anoop E V and Jeeva Gopal led to the Titans opening up a lead of 32-18 with a second all-out. Iran’s captain Fazel Atrachali showed some promise initially by super tackling rival Prashant Rai but he could not replicate that thereafter.

Prashant came up with a super raid of three at that time. Pradeep kept on trying till the end and was rewarded with a super raid late in the match. This one only helped reduce the margin by three to 23-39. Sandeep the youngster made a few amends in the end by making some clean tackles. In the end it was the Titans who proved to be the better of the two.
