Bengal Warriors vs Telugu Titans

Second-half

30-25 Abozar Mighani spends the final 15 seconds near the midline as Telugu Titans' skipper looked to seal the one point from the match. Bengal Warriors has been superb defensively with the tackle points exceeding the raid points 14-11 and another underwhelming performance by the raiding department of Telugu Titans has let the team down. Bengal pips Patna Pirates to the third position while Titans maintains its third place in the Zone B points table.

30-23 Baldev Singh gets his High 5 with a tackle on Rahul Chaudhari.

29-23 Rahul Chaudhari gets Surjeet on his raid and Maninder spends his 30 second raid time to complete an empty raid.

26-17 Mohsen Maghsoudlou gets a point back for Titans with a raid point.

First-half

13-10 Rahul Chaudhari goes for the bonus but makes it very easy for Baldev to get an ankle hold on him. A very ordinary game for the star raider.
