Telugu Titans vs Haryana Steelers Match Preview, Team News, Lineups
Pro Kabaddi League 2018 | Telugu Titans vs Haryana Steelers
Telugu’s quest to finish among the top 3 in Zone B will continue when they face Haryana Steelers at their home in Vizag on the fourth day of this leg.
After a performance boosting win against Jaipur Pink Panthers by 36-26, they surely hare in contention and knocking them out early would be a big bluff. Their opponents in this game the Haryana Steelers have had a see-saw sort of season and their performance hasn’t come cohesively throughout the course of the competition.
After the sudden expulsion of skipper Surender Nada at the early stages of the tournament due to an injury, star raider Monu Goyat was given the responsibility to lead this troop, but the move did not pay any dividends for the Steelers as the star raider looked burdened which affected his individual performance as well.
Meanwhile, Telugu Titans win against Jaipur was their first win after 5 ridiculous defeats on the bounce. It was surely a much-needed win for the Titans and they should look to consolidate after their show the other.
