The star studded Telegu Titans were supposed to be the best team of Season 9, unfortunately they finished last in the points table with just two victories to their name. They lost Pawan Sehrawat very early in the season due to a freak injury. They never recovered from that shock as they slipped in almost every encounter. 

The Gujarat Giants went through a similar journey as they struggled with limited resources. They seem to become predictable as the Giants could not take a leap of faith. The Giants did recover at the end of the tournament only to finish 8th. 

With some major changes to their squad post the auctions, the Gujarat Giants have added some Iranian flavor to their squad. With the inclusion of “Sultan” Fazel Attrachali and Mohammad Nabibaksh , they have fearless youngsters like Prateek Dhaiya and Rakesh apart from some talented youngsters. Fazel Attrachali has been named their captain for the season. 

New coach Ram Mehar Singh will inculcate the Patna Pirates tactics in the Giants while Titans coach Jagadeesh Kumble will have his task cut out as he has a bunch of untapped youngsters at his disposal.

Gujarat Giants Preview

The Gujarat Giants emerged as one of the most innovative teams on the circuit. Their first couple of seasons were unprecedented as they surprised every team with their unique tactics. They finished as runners-up in season 5 and 6 but their fortunes dwindled. The Gujarat Giants finished 8th in season 9 as they become predictable and ran out of gas in most of their games. 

The Giants are back with renewed vigor with a bit of Iranian twist. “Sultan” Fazel Attrachali is their captain and with coach Ram Mehar Singh at the helm of affairs, they may just rewrite history the Patna Pirate way. With the inclusion of experienced all-rounder Mohammad Nabibaksh, Gujaratwill be expected to follow a defense heavy strategy.

Fazel Attrachali is the most successful defender in the history of PKL with 391 successful tackles in 143 games which includes 34 super tackles. This statistic is enough to instill fear among most of the raiders on the circuit.

The team bought a few all-rounders in the recently held auctions which indicates that coach Ram Mehar Singh will use a mixed approach this season. The squad includes 7 all-rounders among 20 players. Once again the weight of expectations will be riding on the shoulders of young raiders Prateek Dahiya and Rakesh. Both have been consistent and dangerous. The only issue with the Giants is their back-up plan if in case any of their raiders get injured during the course of the season. 

The Gujarat Giants have played 8 matches against the Telegu Titans winning 7, thus enjoying a classic dominance. The only bout they lost to the Titans was in 2019. The Giants are known to vary the pace of the game as per their opponents and this strategy has worked for them over the years. But this season they are a defense heavy side thus limiting their surprise moves. One can expect the Gujarat Giants to experiment in their first few matches before settling in a decent combination.

Telugu Titans Preview

Superstar Pawan Sehrawat will be in action once again as the Titans take on the Gujarat Giants in the inaugural bout of season 10. One of the most prolific and dangerous Pawan Sehrawat will hope to overcome the disappointments of the last season where he was out of action due to a freak injury. The Titans went deep into the abyss never to recover. But season 10 may be the year of the Titans as have restructured their team with the addition of some fearless youngsters like Praful Zaware, Omkar Patil, Robin Chaudhary, Shankar Gadai as well as Iranians like all-rounder Hamid Nader and defender Milad Jabbari. Both Iranians had a wonderful run at the recent Asian Games at Hanghou. 

Last season it was young raider Rajneesh who filled in for Pawan Sehrawat in the first half of the season. Unfortunately he too got injured mid-way thus rendering the Titans toothless. But the Telegu Titans acquired some special players like left raider Praful Zaware and right raider Robin at the latest auctions which is a clear indication of a new strategy for season 10.

Defender Parvesh Bhainswal was totally out of form last year, but he has rebooted himself this year with some fantastic performances at the National games as well as the Asian Games. This year, the Titans have intelligently bought some players for specific roles. They have options for the left and right corners as well as the cover positions. They have learnt from their past mistakes and considering the long season, they seem to have enough fire-power to overcome their opponents. 

While Pawan Sehrawat is their all their super raider with 765 successful raids in 105 games earning him 987 raid points. He will hope to complete a 1000 raid points in this match itself. 

Parvesh Bhaiswal is their most successful defender with 263 successful tackles in 120 PKL games. This includes 28 super tackles.

Overall the Telegu Titans look very strong in their attack as well as their defense and they will look forward to break the jinx in every aspect to emerge as one of the top teams of season 10.

Season 10 could marks the return of the predators, The Gujarat Giants. Captain Fazel Attrachali is a master tactician as he will bolster their defence along with fellow countryman Nabibaksh. The Giants used the hit and run tactic successfully in their earlier seasons, but this might be the dawn of a recharged Giants. Raiders Prateek and Rakesh will lead the pack while all-rounders D Balaji and Rohit Gulia will add to the chaos.

Telegu Titans will be heavily dependent on Hi Flyer Pawan Sehrawat who will hope to escape the clutches of the opposition defense as well as injuries. Raider Rajneesh and Vinay will support Pawan while the defense will be closely monitored by veteran Parvesh Bhaiswal.

The inaugural bout will be exciting but slow. Both teams will test each other and it may not be a high scoring match. But both teams will exhibit some new tactics which will set the tone for the season.

Telegu Titans will win the fist bout!
