Scores read Jaipur Pink Panthers vs Telugu Titans:
FULL-TIME: Jaipur Pink Panthers beat Telugu Titans by 24 points. They had inflicted all-out four times in this match and Telugu looked way out of shape to compete with the Panthers today. Jaipur has won their last five games in a row and now has displaced Dabang Delhi from the top of the table.
51-27 Telugu Titans finally INFLICTED an ALL-OUT on Jaipur for the first time in this match, but it had no effect on the outcome. Telugu fans finally have something to rejoice about after scoring four points in a single raid.

32-11 Monu Goyat could not save his team from getting ALL-OUT! Jaipur had INFLICTED third all-out here. Total carnage by the Panthers.
HALF-TIME: Jaipur Pink Panthers gave no chance to Telugu Titans in all the departments. They had inflicted all-out twice in the first half and Telugu had no answers to the tough questions of Jaipur.
29-10 Arjun touches Adarsh this time and the lead is now 19 points and we are not even halfway in the game.

2-0 Rahul Chaudhari comes in for the first raid of this match and will go back with a bonus and a touchpoint! Mohit Pahal has to go out.
Telugu Titans, an already defensive-heavy squad, will start Vinay and Monu Goyat as its primary raiders in the first seven tonight; Siddharth Desai will not open tonight. It’s interesting to note the decisions Telugu Titans made in excluding Vishal Bhardwaj and in comes Mohit Pahal with Ravinder Pahal in both covers.
JAIPUR PINK PANTHERS: Arjun Deshwal, Sunil Kumar, Abhishek KS, Rahul Chaudhari, V Ajith, Sahul Kumar, Ankush
TELUGU TITANS: Vinay, Surjeet Singh, Parvesh Bhainswal, Adarsh T, Monu Goyat, Ravinder Pahal, Mohit Pahal
Jaipur Pink Panthers have shown brilliant form to make it four wins in a row after losing their first game in the league. Arjun Deshwal has been a reliable force for the Panthers in attack with 53 raid points. There has been a lack of support in the raiding department and he would expect V Ajith Kumar, Bhavani Rajput and Rahul Chaudhari to contribute more often to have a solid attack unit. In defence, captain Sunil Kumar is playing his part and has been their most trusted defender with 19 tackle points. He has been complemented well by Ankush who has scored 16 tackle points. Abhishek KS and Sahul Kumar have scored seven tackle points apiece and will be hoping to deliver on a consistent basis.
Telugu Titans, on the other hand, are placed at the bottom of the points table with one win and four losses. Vinay has scored 29 raid points for the Titans and is their top-scorer. Seasoned campaigners like Siddharth Desai and Monu Goyat have chipped in with 27 and 22 raid points respectively. Telugu Titans’ defence has got some work to do and will be eying to come up with a combined effort. Surjeet Singh has been the top defender for Telugu Titans with 10 tackle points. Vishal Bhardwaj and Parvesh Bhainswal who have scored 6 tackle points each will also look to add more value to the Telugu Titans’ defence.
