BLR vs HYD Dream11: Telugu Titans continue to search for an elusive home leg win as they take on Bengaluru Bulls.
They have traversed through five matches and two different legs now but none has managed to bring about any success for Telugu Titans. While they ended up losing all their home leg encounters, the Mumbai leg failed to overturn fortunes for them either with the side falling to a shambolic defeat.
With the side looking certain to record their first win of Pro Kabaddi League 7 against U.P. Yoddha in an edge of the seat thriller, a horrid set of events saw them catapulting to a draw. Pulling off a successful raid in the closing minutes of the match, Telugu Titans ended up committing a technical foul to hand over a point to their opponents, seeing the match end in 20-20.
Elsewhere for reigning champions Bengaluru Bulls, the latest instalment of the league has begun in just the way the side would have fathomed. With three wins from four matches, the side have once again asserted their credentials as title contenders. And their previous 43-42 win against the Warriors was an incredible result from the side, seeing them show the much-needed composure to emerge winners on the day.
And it’s exactly that raiding performance which the side will be looking to emulate today as well when they take on a defensive unit who have struggled massively. With the side-eyeing a place in the top 4 come today, they’ll be looking to canter their way to another win as they look to continue in their soiree against a side who have been bereft of ideas till now.
Probable Playing 7
- Surinder Singh’s injury in the previous encounter might see him being kept out of this encounter.
Abozar Mighani (C), Vishal Bhardwaj, Siddharth Desai, Suraj Desai, Farhad Milaghardhan, C. Arun, Rakesh Gowda
Rohit Kumar(C), Pawan Sehrawat, Ashish Sangwan, Mahender Singh, Amit Sheoran, Mohit Sehrawat, Saurabh
In the 15 matches, the two sides have clashed heads in, Bengaluru Bulls have had a complete tight hold over Telugu Titans. They have emerged winners on 9 occasions while Telugu Titans have a lowly three wins to their name whereas the three matches have ended in draws.
And expect today’s fixture to play out in the same tune with Bengaluru Bulls going onto make it 10 wins against Telegu Titans. They are way the finer unit out of the two in this encounter, having both the better defence and raiding unit and might end up making the scoreline extremely one-sided today.

Dream 11 Picks
Where Telegu Titans were being drubbed in their opening encounters, conceding points left, right and centre, the side managed to come up with an extremely articulate performance in the back in their previous match. It was a pleasant turnaround for the side, one they know they’ll have to resonate today as well against a side revered for their profound raiding department. =
Allowing U.P. Yoddha to register just five raid points in the previous match, the lowest by any side in this edition of the league, right corner Abozar Mohajermighani played a quintessential role in the side’s consummate success. In the wake of his four points, he’s picked up by us. We are also bringing in Vishal Bharadwaj from the side.
Despite their lacklustre form in the previous match, expect Bengaluru Bulls’ backline to enjoy their time out in the match today. Up against a raiding unit who have been dismissed with ease we have decided to rope in a duo of defenders from Bengaluru Bulls. The left side of the mat comes into our side with left corner and captain of his side, Mahender Singh selected by us along with left cover Amit Sheoran.
With there being a massive dearth of options in the all-rounders’ segment, picking out a viable option was a tricky option. In the end we have decided to bring in Farhad Milaghardan from Telugu Titans after his improved defensive show in the previous match and Bengaluru Bulls lacking performing raiders as well apart from Pawan.
With 29 points in the previous match, pulling off just one successful raid and taking his side to a win in a high scoring encounter, Pawan Kumar Sehrawat comes in from Bengaluru Bulls for us. Despite him lacking any kind of assistance from Rohit Kumar and Ashish, he’s managed to keep getting raiding points for the side and should again today as well.
Siddharth Desai might only make an appearance as a substitute in this one but his 11 credit price tag sees us pick him up.

Mahender is our captain for this encounter while Pawan is our vice-captain.
