A match between a struggling team and a directionless side can be quite entertaining. The UP Yodha seems to have lost its bearing as it is not able to dominate its opponents as it did at the beginning of the season. They lost to the Patna Pirates by a margin of 6 points.
Pardeep Narwal did score a Super 10, but the defense was not up to its mark. Yodha could score just 7 tackle points in the entire game. This is not the Yodha that their fans are used to.
On the other hand, the Telegu Titans continue their journey from bad to worse. They utilized the services of Abhishek Singh but it didn’t turn out as expected. The Telegu defense once again was toothless as they laid down arms to the Gujarat Fortune Giants.
UP Yodha needs to get back their sharpness as they have too much firepower to be wasted. They can still win enough games to get through to the play-off. What can the Telegu Titans aim for? They have pride and their fans to play for henceforth. It has been quite a disappointing performance by the Titans but they still need to play and lose fighting.
It is quite surprising that the UP Yodha is struggling to gain a foothold even after 7 games. They started off well with some convincing victories but they lose momentum at crucial moments. They have lost 4 out of their 7 games and are currently placed 9th in the points table above the Patna Pirates.
Interestingly they beat the Bengaluru Bulls then lost to the Fortune Giants in a high-scoring game only to come back and beat the Tamil Thalaiva. But in their next match, they faltered against the Patna Pirates and lost by 6 points.
All these days their raiding was a big issue as Dubki King Pardeep Narwal was unable to score. Now that he has made the necessary adjustments, the defense is crumbling. Pardeep Narwal and Surender Gill have forged a lethal partnership that helps the Yodha to score well. Raider Rohit Tomar contributed in the last match too. But with just 7 tackle points in the entire match, the Yodha cannot expect to win games.
They will be up against a terrified and outclassed Telegu Titans team. This will be a good opportunity to regain form and points for the Yodha.
UP Yodha has conducted just 62 successful team tackles in 7 games which explains their inconsistent performance.
They have inflicted 10 all-outs but conceded 11 in their 7 games. They lost some of the matches due to getting all-out in the second half at crucial junctures.
The Yodha will surely look at repairing the damage by winning against the Telegu Titans. They will need to regroup and recharge themselves as they are much better than a team to be stranded in the 9th place in the points table.
They say that Fortune favors the brave, but sometimes even luck can’t do much about it. It is shocking and astounding to see a bunch of talented youngsters not able to forge half a decent partnership on the mat. That has been the story of the Telegu Titans. Apart from one big victory of the Patna Pirates, they have nothing to boast of.
Coaches Venkatesh Gaud and Manjeet Chiller would be speechless by now. The major concern for the Titans is that they lack a leader. They have no one to fall back on as most of the players are in lone-wolf mode. They tried the services of raider Abhishek who was extremely effective for U Mumba for many seasons. But he will need some time to get into the rhythm. More than that he will need a supportive team who will complement his style of playing.
The Titans looked lethargic and lost in their game against the Gujarat Fortune Giants. One can't win a match with 6 raid points and 11 tackle points. Defender Ankit was the highest scorer for them with 6 points. This was their 5th straight loss which has pushed them to the bottom of the points table.
The Titans will have to fight and perish. The Telegu Titans need to infuse some fresh air and a new strategy. They have got T Adarsh and Iranian Mohsen Magsoudlou in the fray since the last few games. They have also given some match time to right-cover Nitin and left Cover Mohit. This will start yielding results.
Telegu Titans take on the UP Yodha which is already having its own set of problems. This will be a good chance to exploit the Yodha and claw back into the tournament. The Titans have to create panic in the opposition camp so as to create new paths for themselves.
The Titans have won just 2 out of their 10 games with the UP Yodha but they have also forced a TIE in 2 other games. That should cheer them up a bit.
UP Yodha has a wonderful chance to make amends and win this match quickly. They need to get their defense in place. They have Sumit who has over 150 successful tackles in his PKL career. Pardeep and Surender Gill should not have any problem looting points from the Titans. This win should allow Yodha to jump 2 places in the points table. Though they have to be careful as the Titans have nothing to lose and they can be dangerous in the match.
The Telegu Titans have to play for pride. This is a long season and they still have enough time to regroup and recharge themselves. Raider Abhishek will be given some more time as he is now their best bet in raiding. Captain Monu Goyat needs to lead the side with some dynamic performance against the UP Yodha. The Titans will look forward to forcing a TIE.
Overall the Yodha looks too strong for the Titans but we have seen strange things happening in this season.
UP Yodha will win.
