CHC vs TLB Best Dream 11 Team: Winless after their opening sojourn, Chennai Challengers and Telegu Bulls look to add their first points on the scoreboard
The Chennai Challengers and Telegu Bulls. Two sides who find themselves sitting in the trenches of the Indo International Premier Kabaddi League after facing the consequences of dwindling performances in their opening encounters. While the Challengers were taken apart by Diler Dilli, the Bulls on other hand were unlucky to lose to Mumbai by the smallest of a solitary point margin.

What those defeats meted out to these two franchisees is the ever increasing need to scale up their performances in today’s second encounter of the rapturous league. In the wake of the agonising performances, today’s clash when these two faceoff will see us be divulged in an extremely competitive and feisty clash.

With a score difference of -22, Chennai’s horrendous performance against Dilli sees them in massive want of not only coming out on top against the Bulls but doing it handsomely as well. On the other hand, the Bulls will know that they can make massive strides in the ranks with a win today with Mumbai hardly inspiring any confidence despite winning their first match.
In what was a cliff-hanger of a match between them and the Mumbai Che Raje, the Bulls saw themselves fall short at the final hurdle before previously dominating the match. The Bulls were on top in the first quarter leading by 9-7 and found themselves almost touching out and grabbing at a win in the final quarter leading by 13-8 before eventually falling short by just a point.
One of the main reasons for their resolute showing was Harvinder Singh who ended up as the highest amassing defender for the Bulls. He was a mainstay in their defensive unit, incurring a barrage of points with his resilient tackling that deemed Mumbai’s raiders obsolete. He and Bhoite will be the two picks from the Bulls from our team.
Given how lacklustre both these sides were in the attacking arena the previous time around, we are packing 3 defenders with Sandeep Hooda from the Chennai Challengers completing our picks. Whilst he was pummelled by Dilli the previous time around, we expect him to do better today.
An abundance of both tackling and raiding points sees us more often than not always opt for two all-rounders in our team and today is no different. In abject showing by a non-existent Chennai outfit, Sunil Kumar- II emerged as their best performer, showing perseverance to wage a lone battle from one end. He will be our pick from the Chennai outfit while from TLB we are indulging in the myriad Vishal Nain to hold fort. He’s perhaps their most stable all-rounder and we expect him to get the maximum playing time as well as garner an abundance of points in the pivotal role.
Our pick for today’s key encounter will be the Telegu Bulls and this sees us select Love Kumar, TLB’s leading raider from their previous encounter. He is well versed with the modalities of the game, knowing how to work his way around the stringiest of defences and coming up with a couple of points from a single raid. RR Bobade was amongst the points for Chennai and with him managing to traverse his way around an extremely well organised Delhi defence, we expect him to show cohesion and be a pragmatic pick against the Bulls.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We are opting for the Bulls Harvinder Singh as the captain choice for towards encounter given how dismal Chennai were in the raiding corner the previous time around. The vice-captain pick sees Love Kumar been handed the mantle.
