Our third game in the VIVO Pro Kabaddi season 6 against the Telugu Titans ended in a slender defeat. The game was close throughout as our team gave a good fight up till the very end only to be handed the defeat by Telugu Titans in the dying moments of the game.

Telugu Titans started the game off with a minor lead against us only till our magnificent defender Nitesh Kumar opened-up our score tally with a beautiful ankle hold on the Titans’ captain Rahul Chaudhary.  Nitesh Kumar gave us the momentum we needed to launch our comeback against them

We were just trailing by one point throughout the first half. Some of our much-needed raid points were provided by our captain Rishank Devadiga. Sagar Krishna too stepped-up to the occasion with multiple tackles against their raiders. The first-half ended in a 18-13 scoreline in the favour of the Telugu Titans.

The gap between us and the Titans became wider after the second half started, our raiders were falling short to the tackles of Abozar Mighani and Vishal Bhardwaj on multiple occasions. Our team made two crucial successful reviews that gave us the incentive to start off our climb back up.

Prashant Kumar Rai made a valiant effort for the victory by delivering in both the raiding and tackling department for us. He had a total of 11 points by the final whistle.

Our captain was on the sidelines for quite a big portion of the game, throughout the battle we did not have the calling that was needed to make the final winning leap. Even with these hardships we fought the Titans bravely till the very end to close the void by only two points on their final raid.

We take a lot of pointers from this match’s conclusion and will make sure to deliver on shortcomings in our upcoming games throughout the season.
