TELUGU DEFENCE HAS BEEN SCRAPPY THIS SEASON

COMING GOOD IN THE 2nd HALF

STRUGGLE IN DoD

  • DoD raids generally favour defences as the pressure is on the raider to get points, but Telugu Titans corners have not done well in this area this season.
  • Farhad Milaghardan has been superb in DoD raids for Titans, but both Abozar and Vishal have a tackle SR below 50.
