HYD vs UP Dream11 : Winless after their four home leg matches, Telugu Titans search for their first win against a resurgent U.P. Yoddha side
For Telugu Titans, their first match of the Mumbai leg of Pro Kabaddi League 7 is a pivotal one. Sitting right in the bottom of the league standings after losing all of their four home leg matches, the side turn to the comfort of Mumbai today as they look to break free of an impasse which has embroiled the side in a horrid spree of results.
For the side, nothing has worked out till now in the newest edition of the league. Heavily investing in Siddharth Desai as the side shelled out a staggering Rs.1.45 crore to pick up his services from U Mumba along with roping in their coach into their outfit, the side have been massively let down by Desai. With just 20 successful raids in 4 matches with the majority of those coming in the last encounter against Patna Pirates, a game which his side went onto be put down by 16 points, Desai needs to massively deliver for the side today if they are to get their first win.
Elsewhere, with two defeats on the bounce, U.P. Yoddha finally managed to stem the horrid run of results for them with a maverick win. Playing against hosts U Mumba, U.P. Yoddha for the first time stood tall among their opponents as they punched above their weight to come out with a crucial 27-23, something the side will be buoyed by as they look to make it two straight wins today.
Probable Playing 7
Abozar Mighani (C), Siddharth Desai, Suraj Desai, Rajnish, Vishal Bharadwaj, Farhad Milghardan, C. Arun
Nitesh Kumar (C), Amit, Rishank Devadiga, Sumit, Monu Goyat, Ashu Singh, Shrikant Jadhav
A match which will be decided by which raiding department is able to put in the better performance given how paper thin both sides have looked in the defensive side of things, we are going to be siding with U.P. Yoddha for this one. They saw Rishank Devadiga come back into the playing 7 for the first time in the previous match, a move which massively helped the side in pulling of successful all outs and do or die raids.

Dream 11 Picks
Defenders for HYD vs UP Dream11
With last year’s Defender Of The Year, Nitish Kumar putting in lacklustre displays in the opening exchanges, someone who has taken accountability to imbed a culture of excellence for the side in the backline has been Ashu Singh. The defender has taken the onus on himself to come up with pivotal performances, getting a massive 27 points in the last match and he’s going to come into our side for this match.
We’ll be sticking with Nitish Kumar as well for this match and are divulging in Amit as well given how poor Telugu Titans have been in the attacking side of things.
All-Rounders for HYD vs UP Dream11
Although Farhad Milaghardan has done nothing to impress confidence across the four matches he’s played in, the serious dearth of players in this facet make him a must have option. He is the only player in this segment who is assured of playing the majority of the match for either side and becomes more of a necessity for us to have given the combination required for a Dream 11 side.
Raiders for HYD vs UP Dream11
With U.P. Yoddha for the first time seeing a beacon of light being shone on their raiding department the last time around as Rishank returned to the side’s playing line-up, we see them going onto build on that showing today. Monu Goyat has endured a sordid time in the league for one year now but he looked to be regaining some of his lost confidence in the last match, coming up with impressive hand and to touches to become the first player we get in.
Although we wanted Rishank is our side for this one, we were bereft of credits, seeing us opt for Srikhhant Jadhav in the end. We are also going to be keeping Siddharth Desai from Telugu Titans with the raider being identified as the main player in the attacking department for his side.
Captain And Vice-Captain for HYD vs UP Dream11
