Pardeep and Siddharth shine as both teams play out an interesting tie!

Telugu Titans played out a highly entertaining 42-42 tie against Patna Pirates in their penultimate game of the Pune leg on Friday at Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex, Mahalunge in Balewadi. Pardeep Narwal, with 17 raid points was once again the star for Patna as they came back from being six points down to nearly winning the match whereas the Telugu Titans considered themselves unlucky to come away with a tie despite two raiders Siddharth Desai and Rajnish clinching Super 10s.

Pardeep Narwal fought back with Multi-point raids-Match Tied | 42-42

 

The first half saw fortunes change for both the teams as Titans started on the front foot with their defense managing to control Patna's Pardeep Narwal while Rajnish and Siddharth Desai picked up raid points for the men in yellow. Rajnish's dominant three-point "Super Raid" in the 5th minute and a strong defense led by Vishal Bhardwaj helped Titans inflict an ALL- OUT in the 8th minute to open up a five-point lead. Rajnish continued to be the primary attacking weapon for Titans as they moved in towards the final minutes of the half. But Narwal came to the rescue of Pirates and his 4-point "Super Raid", with under two minutes remaining helped Pirates secure an ALL- OUT and the raider followed it up with a massive three-point raid to level 19-19 in the final play of the first half.

Despite the setback, Telugu Titans had looked the more composed team on the mat as they knew they could go on to win the match if they increased Pardeep Narwal's time away from the mat. The defense rose to the challenge, thwarting all the Patna attacks, while Rajnish had impressive early minutes as Titans once again opened up a lead and cliched an ALL-OUT in the 32nd minute of the second half. Rajnish secured his "Super 10", while at the other end Pardeep also achieved the milestone with more than five minutes left in the match.

Patna Pirates tie the match with   late push against Telugu Titans.

Patna's 'one-man wrecking ball' ensured the Pirates clinched an important All-Out with two minutes left in the match to make it a one-point game. The Final moments saw both sides squandering an opportunity to win the match with a safety-first approach which resulted in a draw that does both the teams no good in their bid to make it to the playoffs.

Last encounter - Telugu Titans and Patna Pirates in season 7: Telugu Titans remain winless in Hyderabad with a big loss to 3 time champions, Patna !

 

Match Preview: Which streak will continue Patna's or Telugu's ?

There are three reasons to watch this match. All three reasons will include Pardeep Narwal. In his last 6  games, he has scored massive 10s and helped his team to a three-match winning streak. Patna's win streak has been aided by improving defensive performance and a stand out one from Neeraj in the previous game. Can this defense bring Pardeep back? Can Siddharth Desai inspire Telugu out of this current slump they are in 4 losses I last 5 games, last 3 games all being a streak?
