Regardless of having some of the most talented individuals like Suraj Desai, Siddharth Desai and Vishal Bhardwaj, lack of consistency has played a major part in hurting Telugu Titans this time around. Notwithstanding that, the Hyderabad based team owns enough firepower to make a strong come back. Titans fans on the other hand will be hoping the likes of Abozar Mohajermighani, C Arun and others can soon be operating at their maximum potential in defence and help turn things around.

Best Raider: Monu Goyat

Best Defender: Sumit

UP Yoddha’s first win of the campaign came in their third game, which was against U Mumba on Wednesday,. Their win against U Mumba was mainly spearheaded by the defence, particularly left corner Sumit, who contributed with six tackle points. Captain Nitesh Kumar at the right corner and right cover Ashu Singh, too worked well in tandem, combining for a total of six tackle points. UP Yoddha’s raiding front hasn’t been upto the mark till now, but Rishank Devadiga’s return to the fray was an encouraging sight. In Rashank, Monu Goyat and Shrikant Jadhav, UP Yoddha have three skillful raiders and if they find their form, the trio can prove to be quite a handful for any defence out there.
