The Pro Kabaddi League will be ending another blockbuster week as two intensifying contests wait for us on a Wednesday night. The viewership will be blowing through the roof as the day starts with the UP Yoddha crossing swords with an adversary who has struggled vehemently in the ongoing season, Tamil Thalaivas. UP Yoddha will be desperate to secure a win as that will hand them over an important edge but a victory for the Thalaivas will act as a mere consolation for the side that has had nothing but pain so far. The second contest of the day will feature two struggling teams as the Gujarat Giants will be taking the mat against a lowly Telugu Titans.
Gujarat Giants vs Telugu Titans
Gujarat Giants and the Telugu Titans both have so far shown identical fortunes. The Giants has been roaring hot and cold with 6 wins and 8 losses until now that has seen them grab 44 points while the Titans languish at the bottom, grabbing just one wins from the 17 matches that they have played, a record that they would like to forget at the earliest. However, going by the stature of the fixture, the Giants will hardly survive the slaughter that the Warriors may impose upon them but then again when it comes to the mat, even Goliath has been slain by David on multiple occasions. However, the Giants will have to be careful as they have lost their last game against the Jaipur Pink Panthers with Rakesh Narwal leading the charge throughout the tournament. When it comes to the Titans, they finished a draw with the reigning champions Bengal Warriors. Rajnish will be their finest pick and will have to ensure that the Titans manage to change the dynamics of a campaign that has been down the drain already. The Titans must eye a win to save them the abundance of flak and humiliation that the team will be facing for extending their woeful legacy of losses.
