After the brilliant opening day of the Pro Kabaddi League 2015, where U Mumba and Bengaluru Bulls turned on the heat to win their respective season opener, the action shifts its focus to Super Sunday as Telugu Titans take on Dabang Delhi at National Sports Club of India (NSCI) in Mumbai.
Telugu Titans and Dabang Delhi were relatively disappointing last season as they could not even qualify for the playoff stage. They finished with 42 and 32 points respectively.
Things could have been different for the Titans last season if they were strong with their defence as they missed the playoff spot by a few points.
The Titans seems to have done their homework this season as they have roped in quality players, including Iranian players – Hadi Oshtorak and Meraj Sheykh. Oshtorak might be under pressure due to the high price tag of ₹21.1 lakh, but he has it in him to make his presence felt in the competition.
Both the players along with Titans skipper Rajaguru Subramanian need to be on top of their toes throughout the competition, for all the eight teams have made some crucial changes in their team to improve upon their last season's performance.
Hence, the second edition of Pro Kabaddi League is expected to be top notch as far as quality is concerned.
To ensure high-quality performance, Dabang Delhi held a number of training camps so as to be in perfect shape for their all-important season opener.
Dabang Delhi's Surjeet Singh came up with some good performance in the first edition of the competition and is confident ahead of the second season.
"We should do really well.I think the fact that Ravinder and Rakesh could join the team only in the 2nd half of the tournament last year hindered our progress. That being said, we are a lot better prepared this time around- all the raiders seem to be in great touch and that should be key to doing really well," Dabang Delhi official website quoted Surrjeet Singh as saying.
Apart from the Indian players in their team, other foreign recruits such as TakimitsuKono and Yosuke Sasaki also need to be consistent in the tournament.
With the highly competitive nature of the Pro Kabaddi League, all teams in the competition will be eager to start the competition on a right note.
Hence, the tough competitive journey for Telugu Titans and Dabang Delhi begins on Sunday.
