Hello and welcome to Sportstar’s live coverage of the Tamil Thalaivas vs Telugu Titans game.


Full Time: That was perhaps a bit cruel on Telugu Titans, but they deserved the loss for that school boy error. Within two plays, a one-point deficit turned into 10 points. Sums up the season they’ve had. They won’t even get the consolation point for the loss. Thalaivas, meanwhile, scrap out with another win. Narender was not at his usual best but they still managed to get the win.

The Southern Derby is underway. The scores will read Thalaivas vs Titans

39-31: Titans win another point with a raid from Desai but that is the end of the game.

39-30: Titans win a point on a raid. This will be of no avail though. Poor display from the Titans.

39-29: Titans lose the plot. Desai is picked up with an ankle grab. This means the Titans are all out.

36-29: Pawar what have you done? Oh my god is that even real? That really happened? Ajinkya Pawar gets six points off a raid. The raider was down and out. He had been tackled but from below the six bodies piled on top of him, Pawar fought out and managed a touch on the mid way line. The refs didn’t blow the whistle yet the Titans players let their guard down.

30-29: Another do-or-die raid for Titans. Desai, the Bahubali gets anothr point. Sahil Gulia is the one who thinks to get a tackle in but cannot stop the raider.

30-28: A do-or-die raid and Vishal Bhardwaj gets a tackle on Himanshu but only after he gets a bonus. Surjeet decides to review the bonus point call and loses it.

29-27: Titans get another two points on a raid courtesy Desai. He gets two players in the hook and then gets a touch past the mid way line. Super 10 for Desai.

29-25: Pawar gets a point on a raid.

28-25: Desai is out on a raid. He gets a bonus and breaks past Narender’s ankle hold.

28-23: Narender is convinced he has a sliding toe touch on a Titans shirt. The refs do not agree and Thalaivas review. The replays show that Narender is miles away from getting a tag. Thalaivas lose their referral.

28-23: Another point for Thalaivas as they get the raider Virender is tackled out of play. Titans review the call, claiming that a defender had stepped out of bounds. They are right and Titans gets a point.

28-22: Another do-or-die raid. This time for Titans, Mohsen is the raider. Thalaivas get the tackle in to bring the raider down on the mat. And with that Titans are all out.

24-22: Himanshu steps up for a do-or-die raid and he gets a tag on Vishal. The first point after timeout.

13-20: Ajinkya Pawar is on a must score raid and he is brought down in an instant as Mohsen succeeds with a thigh hold.

13-19: Desai starts the half in spectacular fashion. He wins three points on a raid. Massive!

Half Time: The Titans have kept a leash on Narender and that has hurt the Thalaivas. For the Titans, Desai has been able to get the points. The half way point has Titans in the lead but it will need to keep the momentum if it wants the second win.

13-16: Ajinkya Pawar is the last man as he steps out on a raid. He is unable to escape and Thalaivas are all out.

6-7: Narender is inches away from getting a hand into his own half, but the Titans defence is out with purpose today.

Tamil Thalaivas

After an underwhelming start to the season, Tamil Thalaivas seem to have turned a corner and are unbeaten in their last three games. They will be feeling confident heading into Saturday’s encounter and will hope that Narender, who has scored 99 raid points for them in his debut season and has been a revelation, can shine again. Narender though could do with more help in attack from Ajinkya Pawar (22 raid points) and Himanshu Singh (19 raid points). In defence, Sahil Gulia (21 tackle points) and skipper Sagar (19 tackle points) have been their best performers, while M. Abishek has chipped in with 18 tackle points.

Telugu Titans

Telugu Titans, on the other hand, find themselves in a difficult situation as they are rooted to the bottom of the standings having won once and lost nine matches this season. Needless to say, the Titans need to start picking up wins quickly to bolster their bleak hopes of qualifying beyond the league phase. For positive results, they will need the whole team to step up and Siddharth Desai - their best raider with 53 raid points this season - showed glimpses of finding form in their last match. He will also need help from the likes of Vinay (32 raid points) and Monu Goyat (31 raid points). Defensively, players like Parvesh Bhainswal (18 tackle points), Vishal Bhardwaj (12 tackle points) and Surjeet Singh (11 tackle points) need to do much better.
