Two South Indian sides square off for the first time in the Pro Kabaddi League 2016 on Saturday. Hosts Bengaluru Bulls take on table toppers Telugu Titans in a mouthwatering clash at the Sree Kanteerava Indoor Stadium.
Bengaluru Bulls, after a sour start which included two-straight defeats in their home matches this season, earned their first win at home against the Jaipur Pink Panthers on Friday. The inaugural Pro Kabaddi champions were defeated by 10 points, after Bengaluru Bulls dished out a complete team performance on the day.
Amit Rathi displayed his skills once more in the competition as he bagged a total of six points in the match.
