After a close defeat in the opening fixture of their home leg, Telugu Titans registered a commanding 36-26 win over Jaipur Pink Panthers at the Rajiv Gandhi Indoor Stadium in Vizag on Saturday.
A team with no dearth of star players, Jaipur have fallen flat on their faces this season. There have been a few matches in which they have shown the brilliance that is expected of them but otherwise, they have just been disappointing. And this game was again the same story.
What started off as a close match soon dissolved into another disappointing performance from Jaipur Pink Panthers. Deepak Hooda again inflicted a Super 10 but others weren't able to step up on the night.
The score read 17-13 at half-time to Telugu Titans. And the home side continued the momentum into the second half as well. Nilesh Salunke and Rahul Chaudhari combined for Telugu Titans to extend the lead and finish the match in comfortable position.
