Hello and welcome to the live score updates of Match 2 of day 2. I am Ankit Banerjee and I will take you through it. Telugu Titans take on Patna Pirates, who have tasted success in the last season. Titans have got off to a rollicking start on day 1 and they would like the fortunes to continue. It was Pardeep Narwal’s 15 points that saw Pirates to a victory in their opener.
Rahul Chaudhari had a super 10 yesterday and hence would be in red-hot form. He will have Pardeep Narwal at the other end, who has shown that he can do exactly what Rahul can. When the Pirates face off against the Titans, the defence unit led by Mane will have to deal with the double threat posed by Rahul and Nilesh. On the other hand, Pardeep was in the form of his life and the young corners of the Titans will have to be wary of his guile.
