Rajiv Gandhi Indoor Stadium, Vizag, December 13th at 08:00 PM IST
A loss in the last match against Bengaluru Bulls have put Telugu Titans in a spot of bother to qualify for the playoff stages of Pro Kabaddi league 2018.
They now face a hefty challenge in the form of Patna Pirates who are currently placed second in Zone B and are coming into this encounter after a massive win over Puneri Paltan by 53-36.
Meanwhile, Telugu Titans who have a really daunting task ahead to qualify for playoffs would want to secure a clean sweep over the defending champions to give themselves a little ray of hope.
Both sides have collided prior to this encounter twice and both times it was Telugu Titans who have had the upper hand. They won the first encounter in Pune by 35-31, whereas, the second contest saw them ease past the reigning champions 53-32.
Holding back Pardeep Narwal would be the key to success for Telugu Titans which they have done pretty well already in the past two games. Pardeep has only managed 3 raid points from the past two games and Abozar Mighani has been the one who has annoyed him the most.
Can Abozar do it for one last time in this season or Pardeep would be out with a strategy of his to get past Pardeep? We will get the answers in just a few hours.

Scenario 1: Irrespective of the two wins in the competition over Patna, they still are a better side going by the current form. As they are close to making it to the playoffs, the team management might rest some of their premier players.
Fantasy Tip: Do not include Pardeep Narwal in this team as he is the showstopper for Patna yet again. Players like Manjeet, Jaideep can also be sidelined.
Scenario 2: A least expected playing seven, especially from Patna Pirates who are on a roll.
Scenario 3: Chances are bleak, but if Telugu Titans come out with a different approach and an unexpected raid department where they have struggled quite a bit.
Fantasy Tip: Including Rahul Chaudhari could be relevant, but names like Rakshith, Kamal Singh are the most suitable individuals according to the scenario. A team favouring Telugu Titans more.
