Telugu Titans has two wins and 17 losses in its Pro Kabaddi Season 9 campaign. Siddharth Desai has been the most dominating raider for the Titans with 142 raid points but there has been a lack of support in the raiding department for the Baahubali. They have got the likes of Vijay, Adarsh T, Monu Goyat and Abhishek Singh in their raiding unit who have scored in the 30-40 raid points range. On the defensive front, the duo of Vishal Bhardwaj and Parvesh Bhainswal have amassed 44 and 43 tackle points for the Titans, while Ankit has also chipped in with 22 tackle points.
Meanwhile, Tamil Thalaivas has been one of the clinical sides of the tournament with eight wins, seven losses and four ties. Narender is leading the charts for the Thalaivas in the attack with 200 raid points and has been accompanied by Ajinkya Pawar who has produced 86 raid points. Himanshu Singh has also made his presence felt with 36 raid points. As far as the defence is concerned, Sagar has been the main tackler for the Thalaivas with 53 tackle points. Sahil Gulia has also been vital for the team as he has 47 tackle points to his name. M. Abishek has also been decent for the Thalaivas with 31 tackle points.
