U.P. Yoddhas, the GMR group-owned franchise plying trade in the Pro Kabaddi League, will aim to continue their winning momentum when they face Telugu Titans in Match 15 of PKL 2023-24. The game will be played at the Shree Kanteerava Indoor Stadium. The Yoddhas put up a dominant display in their previous match at Ahmedabad, beating Haryana Steelers 57-27. They are currently fourth in the table with six points and a score difference of 26.

The match between U.P. Yoddhas and Telugu Titans will be telecast LIVE on Star Sports Network and can be streamed LIVE on Disney Hotstar on December 9, 2023, from 09:00 p.m. (IST) onwards.

U.P. Yoddhas have a superior head-to-head record against Telugu Titans as they have beaten the team from Hyderabad eight times out of 12 matches they played against each other. The Titans won twice, while the other two games were tied.

Speaking before the match, U.P. Yoddhas Head Coach Jasveer Singh said, “We have started to show some cohesiveness as a unit, and we are trying to play our style of Kabaddi. We will only take one match at a time and analyze for the current game so that the players remain focused on what is going on on the mat”.

The Yoddhas will be delighted that their dynamic Captain, Pardeep Narwal, has found his form, scoring 12 raid points in the previous game against Haryana Steelers. Surender Gill scored 13 points, and the duo looked dangerous on the attacking front. The defence has been solid for the Yoddhas, with the corner defenders Sumit and Nitesh Kumar allowing very little for the opposition raiders to pick on. The defence picked up 20 tackle points in the previous match, showing their prowess.

Telugu Titans haven’t started the season well as they lost their matches 32-38 to Gujarat Giants and 28-50 to Patna Pirates. Still, they can be a dangerous unit, especially with their star raider and Captain Pawan Sehrawat in fine form.
