With a win in two matches in our kitty, we are confident to register our second victory as we face Telugu Titans in ProKabaddi season 6 on Saturday. What boosts our mentality furthermore is the fact that, we remained undefeated against the Titans in the previous edition of ProKabaddi.
A quick look
Having won one match, we learned to believe in our strengths while our hard-fought loss to Patna Pirates came as an opportunity to find our weaknesses and work upon them early in the tournament. While Rishank Devadiga has been our inspiration through and through, we have found youngsters Nitesh Kumar and Shrikant Jadhav stepping up, which is a mark of a perfect team. With experienced Prashanth Kumar Rai and Jeeva Kumar in the side, we feel even more prepared for our next encounter in hand.
The Vishal Bhardwaj-led Telugu Titans are a team heavy on defenders, with Abozar Mighani and the captain himself leading the contingent. However, our raiders have shown finesse on the mat on multiple occasions, and we have full faith that they would reciprocate their performance.
For our defenders, biggest names to watch out for will be Rahul Chaudhari, Mohsen Maghsoudloujafari and Nilesh Salukhe, who dominated the charts as the Titans defeated Tamil Thalaivas. This is the time for Jeeva, Nitesh and Narender to show their strength and determination. Nitesh has been phenomenal so far in the season and we will pin our hopes on him to continue with the stellar show.
Story so far
We have won one and lost one match in Chennai, while the Titans have won their only match in the leg. Before our clash with them, we stand second in the Zone B points table while the Titans are fifth.
Head to head
UP Yoddha 3-0 Telugu Titans
