Telugu Titans will be left wondering what they need to do to secure a win in Season 8. Their raider Rajnish once again clinched a Super 10 (11 points) but an ALL OUT in the dying minutes cost them dearly.

 The first half saw both teams opt for a cautious approach. Galla Raju found a place in the Telugu starting 7 for Rohit Kumar but the Titans were hoping that the raiding duo of Rajnish and Ankit Beniwal would do the bulk of the scoring. Unfortunately for them, Bengal’s left corner Ran Singh was in fantastic form, picking up 3 tackle points in the first half.
