Preview: Telugu Titans’ final league fixture is a crucial one for them when they take on Bengal Warriors at the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Indoor Stadium in Kolkata on Tuesday. Telugu Titans will need a big win to give them a mathematical chance of qualifying. Bengal Warriors, on the other hand, will look to keep their momentum going into the Playoffs after already having qualified from Zone B.
Bengal Warriors have won both encounters between the sides this season by a similar 30-25 margin. The win in Mumbai saw Baldev Singh and Farhad Milaghardan return High 5s for Bengal Warriors and Telugu Titans respectively, in a game dominated by the defence.
Maninder Singh has been stupendous in Season 6 for Bengal Warriors and has led the way in offence for his side. The raider has scored 168 raid points in 18 matches for his side, 106 more than the next best. He has scored 17 raid points against Telugu Titans this season including a Super 10. A similar performance would be of great help to the side as they aim to get the better of a dynamic Telugu Titans defence.
Vishal Bhardwaj, meanwhile, is the third-best Left Corner this season, having garnered 60 tackle points in 17 outings. Scoring at an average of 3.53 tackle points per game, Bhardwaj has also amassed 5 High 5s this season. His partnership with fellow Corner Abozar Mohajermighani is one of the most feared in the league and he will look to keep Bengal Warriors’ raiders quiet to ensure the big victory that Telugu Titans need for possible qualification to the Playoffs.
