Hyderabad, Aug 3 (IBNS): As Hyderabad, the medieval city known for the 'Charminar', gets ready to host the second half of the Star Sports Pro Kabaddi League on Tuesday, the Telugu Titans, who are lying in the second spot in the points table, have the best chance to clinch a semi-final berth.

Anouncing Meraj Shaykh, their Iranian recruit as Captain for the second half of the season, the Telugu Titans play four matches with the opening one against Jaipur Pink Panthers.

Their other opponents are Bengal Warriors, Patna Pirates and Puneri Paltan on the following days. U Mumba, Jaipur Pink Panthers and Bengal Warriors are the two teams scheduled to play two matches each while the rest of them play one match each.

For Telugu Titans who are on 26 points, they need to make a good start. They have convincingly beaten the Panthers in the first leg and shouldn’t find the going tough against them.

The hosts are well equipped despite their star raider Rahul Chaudhari’s lack of form.

They have been well-served in the raiding department by new-find Prashant Kumar Rai and   Sukesh Hegde has performed consistently in attack to keep their winning streak going save for that loss to Bengaluru Bulls in Patna.

Announcing their Iranian recruit as captain, Srinivas Sreeramaneni, owner of the Telugu Titans said, "Meraj is unarguably one of the most experienced players of the team. With the virtue of his skill and seniority, he will be able to utilize all the the youngsters in the team to their maximum potential.Telugu Titans are not about their individual stars but are about a team coming together to give each game their best shot."
