The last home game for the Telugu Titans in the Pro Kabaddi League 2016 sees them pitted against Bengal Warriors at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Vizag on Tuesday.
Titans are currently top of the table after two wins and a loss from three games in the third season of Pro Kabaddi, and they will be keen on extending their lead going into the Bengaluru leg of Pro Kabaddi League 2016.
Rahul Chaudhary brilliantly skippered Telugu Titans to a comfortable 45-34 victory against Dabang Delhi on Monday. It was a complete team performance from the Telugu Titans, as they won their second successive game. Apart from Rahul, Rohit Baliyan and the veteran Dharmaraj Cheralathan also gave impressive displays.
For Dabang Delhi, only Kashiling Adake and Surjit Singh gave brave displays in the match.
Bengal Warriors have to be wary now of the confident Telugu Titans and they will be expecting a strong fight against the home side. The Kolkata side did not have a decent showing in the first two seasons of the Pro Kabaddi League, finishing in the last four on both ocassions, and they will be keen on a turnaround in the third season.
Nilesh Shinde is back as the skipper of the side for this season as well and his leadership will be key going ahead in the Pro Kabaddi League 2016. Injuries have been a massive concern for Bengal Warriors over the last two seasons, and this time they will hope there is no repeat.
Apart from a new coach Pratap Shetty and the inclusion of some new faces, the Bengal Warriors have also roped in a new physio. "Our main aim is fitness this time and a second physio will help eliminate injuries," Shinde was quoted by PTI ahead of the tournament.
Deepak Kumar, Umesh Mhatre and South Korea's Jang Kun Lee will be the key raiders for the Bengal Warriors.
