In what appears to be another mouth-watering Pro Kabaddi League contest, Jaipur Pink Panthers will face-off against the Telugu Titans this Thursday at the Sawai Mansingh Indoor Stadium. The game will be second of the double-header scheduled at the venue and it will also conclude the Jaipur leg of Pro Kabaddi League 2019. The home side will be looking to end their Jaipur campaign on a high if they want to stay in contention for the playoff race. Jaipur Pink Panthers are currently placed seventh on the points table, while the Telugu Titans are placed eleventh.
With eight wins in 19 matches, Jaipur Pink Panthers are placed just one position below the playoff qualifying criteria. The Deepak Hooda-led side will now be facing Telugu Titans in a must-win game. Jaipur Pink Panthers lost to Telugu Titans earlier this season but they will go into this game starting as firm favourites. The Pink Panthers are placed seventh on current standings and they will also be playing in front of their home supporters this time around. The Rajasthan-based side needs to win all their remaining games to end the table as one of the top six teams.
With just four wins out of 17 completed games, Telugu Titans have had a disastrous campaign so far in the 2019 edition of Pro Kabaddi League. They are pretty much out of the playoff contention race and will now be looking to register some wins under their belt. With the hopes of qualifying for playoffs all but gone, the Abozar Mohajermighani-led side can now play with more freedom and can act as a spoilsport for other teams. The Titans can take heart from the fact that they defeated the Rajasthan-based team in their previous meeting.
The upcoming fixture is a must-win game for Jaipur Pink Panthers. The match will also conclude the Jaipur leg of Pro Kabaddi League 2019. The match is scheduled for September 27 at the Sawai Mansingh Indoor Stadium at 20:30 IST.
