Telugu Titans are a team whose fortunes have sunk to new lows in recent editions of the PKL. There was a time when the team made it to the playoffs at least easily, but the last season was just disastrous for them where no player worked for them, and they got a win.
The Telugu Titans are a team that have seen their fortunes drop to new lows in the past few editions of the PKL. There was a time when the team made it to the playoffs at least easily, and the raider Rahul Chaudhari was one of the league’s most feared stars.
At the start of the season, they lost their main raider Siddarth Desai to injury, while skipper Rohit Kumar looked well past its peak. Such was the situation, that teams just didn’t like to concede points, either in defense or in raids. In one of the matches against the finalists Pirates of Patnatheir former coach Ram Meher Singh can be seen shouting instructions to the team, not to give points.
In the official timeout, he could be seen instructing his team, ‘the lead is seven points now, don’t even concede a bonus point to the opponents’. As the point happened, Titans raider Rajnish managed to get a bonus but was tackled by the Patna defence. This left the coach red-faced.
Cut in the ninth season, and Patna is no longer the same team. The team is coached by Ravi Shetty now and no longer has the same group of players. The Titans also made smarter choices during the auction, to make their raid unit a strong one. They also got Manjeet Chillar in the coaching department which helps them turn the tide of three-time champions Patna Pirates. The Titans won 30-21.
