Can the last few days of 2023 bring luck to the Telegu Titans as they get ready to take on former champions U Mumba. The Titans have won just 1 game so far in the season. Though they lost a few close matches, overall Telegu Titans has been the weakest among all. As they get ready for their bout against U Mumba, nothing much is expected from them. On the other hand, U Mumba has won 4 out of their 7 matches, but they have been generally inconsistent. They had a tough game against the Bengal Warriors but they managed to win it by 2 points. This was after none of their raiders could score a Super 10. Hence their encounter with the Telegu Titans will not be a cakewalk. 

The Telegu Titans are struggling in all areas. They are totally dependent on Pawan Sehrawat for everything. It’s like Pawan is the only earning member for a large family. Even though the Titans are the weakest team, U Mumba will have to gear up for their last encounter of 2023. This will be an epic face-off between Hi Flyer Pawan Sehrawat and the Mumba defense.

Telugu Titans Preview

2023 hasn’t been kind to the Telegu Titans. They have won just 1 match in season 10. The Titans are more or less on a journey like season 9 where they could win just 2 games in the entire season. Captain Pawan Sehrawat is like the only earning member of their team. Overall, Telegu Titans have disappointed their fans with some inconsistent performances. Their biggest challenge is setting up a stable combination. 

The Telegu Titans have too many vagaries to take care off. First off all they have too many out of form players. Defenders Parvesh Bhainswal, Shakar Gadai, Sandeep Dhull have been highly inconsistent. Raiding side-kick Rajneesh has failed to impress. Hence the total burden of the team is on Pawan Sehrawat. Unfortunately the Telegu Titans have not used their youngsters effectively. They seem to be unsure about their utility.

The only way that the Telegu Titans can bounce back is by providing effervescent support to Pawan Sehrawat. They have to use players like Omkar, Praful Zaware, Ajith Pawar and Robin Chaudhary. All these youngsters have to part of the starting 7 in order to create an aggressive environment. The Telegu Titans were erratic against the Bengaluru Bulls in their last match. Pawan Seherawat scored a Super 10 while defender Ajith Pawar was lethal with his tackles as he scored a Hi 5. But the other raiders and defenders could not match the intensity as the Titans fell short of just 2 points in the end. This was a match that they should have won. The other major leakage for the Titans is the number of all-outs they concede. They have gifted 16 all-outs in 7 matches which is outrageous. They have inflicted the lowest all-outs in this season apart from conceding 294 points. The Titans have to get into austerity mode at least if they can’t earn heavily. 

The Titans will be up against U Mumba in their last match of 2023. They have won 5 out of their 16 encounters with Mumba. The Titans can take some inspiration from the fact that they beat U Mumba last year which was one of their 2 victories of season 9.

U Mumba Preview

Former champions have not been able to dominate consistently. They have won 4 out of their 7 matches but they need to be more assertive in their approach. U Mumba has a young team coached by Iranian Gholamreza. They have displayed tenacity but lack consistency. Their biggest issue is their raiding. Young raiders Zafardanesh, Guman Singh and all-rounder Visanath have been their stable trio. Though U Mumba has the best success rate per match, its overall earning in raids has been just 145 points in 6 matches. Their raiding trio has been able to execute just 5 Super raids in 6 games.

A fragile defense has been another worry for U Mumba. With a success rate of just 33% in team tackles, Mumba is always on the back-foot while scoring. They have conceded 223 team points in 6 matches apart from 6 all-outs. Captain Surender Singh has been guilty of unforced errors. Though he held his nerve in the match against the Bengal Warriors where he scored 3 tackle points. Left cover Mahender Singh scored a Hi 5 while right corner Rinku scored 4 tackle points. But whenever the defense has been ruthless, the Mumba raiders have not earned well. Mumba earned 20 raid points against the Bengal Warriors while their defenders earned 14 tackle points. If U Mumba is able to earn from both departments, they will be able to win more games. 

U Mumba is placed 6th in the points table. Though these are early days for them in the season, they need to win more matches in order to stay in the top 5. Raider Guman Singh has under-performed this season. Though he has Iranian youngster Zafardanesh for company, both can earn at a much quicker pace. Guman and Zafardanesh have earned 98 raid points in 6 matches. But none of them is in the top 10. 

Mumba has a decent record against the Telegu Titans. They have won 9 out of the 16 encounters against the Titans over the years. Though the team from Hyderabad did surprise them last season in one of the league matches. Mumba lost that match by a margin of 6 points.

Welcome to the epic encounter of 2023 where the Telegu Titans take on U Mumba. Pawan Sehrawat has earned 76 raid points for the Titans and he will score another Super 10 against U Mumba. Titans will use raiders Robin Chaudhary and Praful Zaware but none of them will be effective. Left corner Sandeep Dhull will be aggressive in the first half but he will lose intensity as the game progresses. Left cover Ajith Pawar will be ruthless. But the Telegu Titans will concede an all-out early in the first half thus trailing by half-time.

Mumba raiders Guman and Zafardanesh will be quick to score points in the first half. Right corner Rinku Singh will target Pawan Sehrawat. Defenders Mahender Singh and Surender will be successful in the second half while all-rounder Visvanath will be the trump card for U Mumba. Overall the Telegu Titans look scratchy, but they may trouble U Mumba raiders. If the Titans are able to regulate the Mumba raiders, this might be the biggest upset of 2023.

U Mumba will win.
