Reliable Force in the Attack

Ankit Beniwal and Rajnish showed their worth in the side in the last season and were retained by the Titans. However, Siddharth Desai went under the hammer and was bought back at his base price of ₹20 lakhs. They have also added quality attackers to their lineup in the form of Abhishek Singh and Monu Goyat.

The selection of raiders in the starting 7 will be something coach Venkatesh Goud and his deputy Manjeet Chhillar will have to work on.

Reunion of Abhishek and Siddharth

Siddharth Desai amassed 221 points in his debut season for U Mumba. Abhishek Singh who was also playing his first vivo PKL season chipped in well and produced 53 points in the 15 matches that he played. They have the experience of playing together and can coordinate well to raid in tandem.

Mighty Defenders

On paper, this looks like a powerful side in the defence and have the capability to keep the raiders quiet on their day. As corners, they have got left-corner Vishal Bhardwaj and right-cover Ravinder Pahal in their lineup. When we talk about covers, they have got seasoned campaigners like Parvesh Bhainswal and Surjeet Singh. The best part for the Titans in the defence is that Parvesh and Ravinder have the experience of playing together for the Railways in the Senior National Kabaddi Championship.

Captivating Corners

Right-cover Surjeet Singh and left-corner Parvesh Bhainswal have scored 53 and 56 tackle points respectively in the previous season and they can be trusted to hunt as a dominating pair for the Titans.

Promising prospects

The left-corner Adarsh T impressed in the last season because of his raiding skills and collected 76 points with one Super 10 to his name. He also added 10 tackle points to his kitty with the help of a Super Tackle. Along with him, the Titans would also expect Mohsen Maghsoudlou to fire as the Iranian started his journey with the same team in season 5.

The inclusion of Manjeet Chhillar as an assistant coach can be an add-on for the Titans as the veteran has got a lot of experience under his belt and his input can be helpful for the betterment of the team.
