Preview: Pro Kabaddi action next shifts to Vizag as Telugu Titans take on Gujarat Fortunegiants in an Inter Zone Challenge Week clash at the Rajiv Gandhi Indoor Stadium on Friday. While Gujarat Fortunegiants have already qualified for the Playoffs, Telugu Titans will be looking to close the gap on third-placed Bengal Warriors in Zone B.
Gujarat Fortunegiants got the better of Telugu Titans in the only game the teams have played so far in Pro Kabaddi Season 5. Sachin scored a Super 10 while right corner Abozar Mohajermighani managed four tackle points for Gujarat Fortunegiants. But the star defender will turn up for the opposition this time around which could make things tricky for Gujarat Fortunegiants.
Despite missing a few games due to injury, Vishal Bhardwaj has been Telugu Titans’ best defender with 38 tackle points so far this season. Since his comeback, Bhardwaj has managed to rack up two High 5s in three games and currently has an average of 4.22 tackle points per game.
Bhardwaj, though, will be up against an in-form Sachin this time around, who has wonderfully led Gujarat Fortunegiants’ offence for the second year in succession. Sachin sits eighth on the Best Raiders’ list for the season, having managed to score 127 points in 16 games.
Though Sachin got the better of Bhardwaj in the only time the two teams met, the right raider will have his hands full when he goes up against the duo of Telugu Titans’ skipper and Mighani, who have been doing well together this season.
