Telugu Titans second in the standing
Patna showed some excellent fighting spirit in the initial stages and was giving Telugu Titans a tough game. Rakesh was on top of his game for Patna and they seemed to be on the right path. He had some good support from Sandeep Narwal as well. Both players added points through raids and kept the team in hunt.
The half time score read 13-12 in favour of Telugu Titans, but the match was still alive at that point of time. In the second half, Patna Pirates found it hard to withstand the pressure.
