FULL TIME: That was close but yet so far for Telugu Titans. Perhaps the team should have been a little brave in the dying minutes of the game.

The left corner Mohit has also played his part with vital 16 tackle points.
Telugu Titans, on the other hand, will desperately look to bounce back after their six-match winless run. The Hyderabad-based franchise have secured one win and have eight losses against their name.
