This is a story where both teams entered their last match as hunters, but they were hunted by the opposition. While Haryana Steelers lost a hard fought match against the Pink Panthers, Telegu Titans were conned into submission by the Puneri Paltan.

Titans are hurt badly, but their team is also scattered in terms of defene. They have a lot to cover up in order to start dominating. Though Siddharth Desai got 15 points in his last match, he is not looking fearless. Ruturaj Koravi and Surinder have been scratchy in the defence. But the biggest problem for the Titans is Rohit Kumar who pistons are not firing up.

Haryana Steelers have played well but they are yet to find their killer punch. The biggest positive for them is their all rounder's are delivering. Rohit Gulia, Meetu and Jaideep look to be in good rhythm. Defender Surender Nada is dependable so is his star raider Vikash Kandola who earned raid points in the last match which included bonus points.

If Haryana can maintain their momentum, they can prove to be a handful for the Titans.

Telugu Titans Preview

With Bahubali Siddharth Desai and Super Star Rohit Kumar in your squad, the Titans should be terrorizing the opponents. Unfortunately, the Titans haven't been able to get their act together.

Bahubali Sid Desai did score a super 10 in the last match, but that may not be enough. With over 560 PKL raid points, the Titans are heavily dependent on him for a better harvest. Interestingly Rajnish who provided the Titans with a very good alternative in raiding with 6 points in his first match, was not used much in the match against the Paltans.

Ruturaj Koravi in ​​the right corner will have to improve his hunting skills. Sandeep Kandola in the left corner will have to forge sharp combinations with C Arun and Surinder Singh thus reducing the leakage of points.

The scoring rate looks good for the Titans, but consistency will be the key. Their biggest worry is their momentum in the second half where they look worn out.

Rohit Kumar will have to fire on all cylinders.

Have a clear cut policy on raiding- Work on combinations- Siddharth Desai, Rohit Kumar, Rajneesh, Ankit Beniwal.

Improve their fitness and alertness in the second half.

Ruturaj Koravi and Surinder hold the key to the defence.

Haryana Steelers Preview

Haryana Steelers have always been work in progress. They have given ample chances to youngsters and groomed them well. They had a decent outing in the last season and will look to build on their past performances. Their USP is their youthful exuberance.

The ever reliable Vikash Kandola will be their anchor man. With an average of 9.5 raid points per match, he will be expected to deliver consistently. They have a young brigade of raiders in the form of Vinay, Ashish, Akshay and Meetu Mahender. They will also be dependent on all rounders like Rohit Gulia and Rajesh Narwal.

Steelers had some impressive numbers last season-

76 Do or Die raid points

32 All outs inflicted

15 Super raids

39% successful raids.

Their biggest worry is their porous defense. Last season they just had 9.3 successful tackles per match conceding 802 points. If they can bolster their defense this season, Steelers will be a force to reckon with.

Surprise packages:

Vikash Kandola has 1 Super 10's to his name with an average of 9.5 raid points per match.

377 successful team raids till now.

All Rounders like Meetu, Jaideep and Rohit Gulia are key players.

Telegu Titans look awesome on paper but consistency has been evading them.

Haryana Steelers have worked hard on every aspect of the game, but they are missing the killer punch.

Taking into consideration their last outing, Telegu Titans have more questions than answers. They need to get their act together in their defense if they aim to beat the Steelers.

Haryana Steelers just need to redo all the good work they did against the Pink Panthers. What gives them an edge is their never say die attitude and the strategy of playing deep.

If they can corner Siddhart Desai, they have a great opportunity to win an important encounter.

Tough match expected, but Haryana will beat the Titans.
