Match: Telugu Titans vs Bengal Warriors, Match 61, Pro Kabaddi League 2022.
Date and Time: January 17, 2022, Monday, 8:30 PM IST.
Venue: Sheraton Grand, Whitefield, Bengaluru.
The Titans are languishing at the bottom of the PKL points table with just 11 points from nine matches so far this season. They have registered seven losses and a couple of draws to their name and are still in the quest for their first victory.
Meanwhile, the Warriors are currently placed eighth in the table with 25 points from ten encounters. They have four wins and five losses so far this season, while their other match ended in a draw. A win on Monday would see them move to sixth place.
The Titans head into this clash on the back of a loss against UP Yoddha by six points. They have lost their last five Pro Kabaddi matches and are highly unlikely to progress to the next round of the competition.
The Warriors, on the other hand, drew their previous match against U Mumba. They are enjoying a two-match unbeaten streak and are expected to extend their unbeaten run in the ongoing edition of the Pro Kabaddi League.
The Warriors have been a better side when compared to the Titans so far this season. Consequently, the Bengal-based club is the favorite to win this match.
Rajnish: Rajnish was introduced in a recent game against Dabang Delhi to inject some fresh energy in the side and the young raider put on a marvelous display, almost single-handedly beating the Dabang Delhi side. The youngster has taken his tally to 45 raid points in 5 games and will be hoping to come up with another stellar show tonight.
Ankit Beniwal: In the absence of Desai and in light of Rohits inconsistent form, Beniwal has taken it upon himself to deliver the goods. The talented all-rounder has totaled 47 raid points and also has 3 tackle points to show for his efforts. He will have a big role tonight.
Ruturaj Koravi: Ruturaj Koravi will be up against an experienced Bengal raiding unit and will need to take the lead. Koravi has developed well and is putting on a good show this season, though he has been a bit inconsistent. The right-corner defender has started to come good and has taken his tally to 16 tackle points this season.

Maninder Singh: Maninder Singh is the top raider in the Bengal Warriors side and has been one of the major reasons behind the Bengal Warriors run. The tall and strong raider ended last season strongly and has started this one well, registering 128 raid points in 10 games, including 17 in the last game. He has been superb in the last few games and will be key.

Mohammad Esmaeil Nabibakhsh: Mohammad Esmaeil Nabibakhsh is the x-factor in the Bengal Warriors side. He can raid, he can tackle, and is just the kind of player every coach would want. The Iranian was the top scorer for the side in the opening game but hasnt been able to maintain his high standards since. He has 37 raid points and 16 tackle points to his name. He would be eager to put in another solid show.
Abozar Mohajermighani: A strong defense is a key to putting pressure on the opposition and Abozar has added steel to the sides defense. The right corner defender is very neat with his tackles and registered 18 tackle points thus far. He will have a big role to play tonight.
