The Telugu Titans lost their opening clash of the tournament against the U Mumba which was followed by a loss to Tamil Thalaivas, spearheaded by former player Rahul Chaudhari. Chaudhari, who had spent his last six seasons with the Titans, made his presence felt by scoring his maiden Super 10 of this edition. 

The fortunes of the Telugu Titans was further hurt by an underwhelming performance from Siddharth Desai, who was signed for a large sum in the auction. Desai will need to step up for the Titans and deliver a quality performance if they are to snap their losing streak on Wednesday. 

Rajnish is currently the leading raider for the Telugu Titans' with 11 raid points. An error-free performance from defenders Vishal Bharadwaj, who has been in good form, Abozar Mohajermighani and C Arun will certainly hand the Titans a strong advantage.

The Dabang Delhi KC, on the other hand, are led by defender Joginder Narwal. Narwal will be hoping for quality support from all-rounder Meraj Sheykh, raiders Naveen Kumar and Chandran Ranjit in their opening clash of the Pro Kabaddi League 2019.
