It’s time for another southern derby when Telugu Titans will take on the mighty Bengaluru Bulls in an epic Zone B encounter. Bengaluru Bulls are currently leading the Zone-B table and have been impressive for the whole season. They have dominated their group so far and are leading the defending champions Patna Pirates. Telugu Titans, on the other hand, will be looking to cement their third spot in order to qualify for the next round.

In their last meeting Bulls defeated Titans by 37-24 due to Pawan Kumar’s heroics who scored 13 raid points in his 20 attempts. Mahendra Singh also scored a high-five in this match and made a terrific comeback for Bengaluru Bulls.

Telugu Titans then emerged victorious in their next match against Patna Pirates with the scoreline of (41-36). That was a crucial game keeping in mind the situation at the top half of the table. Bulls top the pile during their break time will look to continue their fine form when they meet Telugu Titans on Tuesday night.

Telugu’s defence performed really well against Pradeep Narwal & Co and would like to show the same spirit against the Bulls. This face-off will see Bengaluru’s gritty attack against Titan’s formidable defence. We will witness a clash of heavyweights in this intriguing contest which may decide the fate of Zone-B.

The only other occasion when the two teams, Bengaluru Bulls and Telugu Titans, have faced each other in the season, was in Match 86 where the Bulls were yet again the winners with a 34-26 scoreline.
