Telugu Titans will look to make it two wins on the trot as they clash with defending champions Patna Pirates in their second fixture of the Hyderabad leg.
Telugu Titans began their PKL season with a bang as they beat new entrants Tamil Thalaivas 32-27 on the opening day. Raider pair Rahul Chaudhari and Nilesh Salunke were on fire on the night with Rahul picking the first “Super 10” of the season. Defender Farhad Milagardhan impressed on debut with some crucial tackles and complemented Vishal Bharadwaj on the corner. They managed to keep Thalaivas’ skipper Ajay Thakur under wraps. The Titans’ defence will have to continue to do this against the Pirates’ skipper Pardeep Narwal too.
Pardeep Narwal was appointed the captain of the champions Patna Pirates this season. Pardeep will have Monu Goyat for company in raiding. Defense will be helmed by the hulking Vishal Mane along with Sachin Shingade to counter the double threat of Rahul Chaudhari and Nilesh Salunke. The Pirates are missing a star all-rounder which provides opportunity A�forA�Mohammad Magshouldou to step up and make a mark.
