Rooted at the bottom of the standings with just one win and six losses, it’s safe to say that Telugu Titans need positive results soon if they are to turn around their campaign. The Titans have struggled to produce their best in both attack and defence. Their attacking trio of Siddharth Desai, Vinay and Monu Goyat have managed 35, 32 and 28 raid points respectively. Needless to say, they need to step up in the upcoming games and their defence needs to improve as well. Vishal Bhardwaj with 11 tackle points has been their best defender, while Surjeet Singh has managed 10 tackle points. The likes of Vijay Kumar and Parvesh Bhainswal also need to up their defensive game.
Gujarat Giants, meanwhile, has had an inconsistent campaign so far with three wins, three losses and a tie. The Giants’ Rakesh has set the mat ablaze this season with the quality performances that’s seen him score 90 raid points already. While he’s been supported by Chandran Ranjit (35 raid points) and Parteek Dhaiya (20 raid points), most of the attacking onus rests on Rakesh’s shoulders. As far as the defence goes, Sourav Gulia has been their top performer with 18 tackle points. Arkam Shaikh and Shankar Gadai have been their next-best defensive performers with 13 and nine tackle points respectively.
