Telugu Titans are one of the only two sides who have been part of the Pro Kabaddi League since first season and yet have never made it to the final. In fact, they haven't been a part of the playoffs since the 12-team format was introduced three seasons back, despite fielding a strong team always.

What happened in 2019

With just six wins from 22 matches played, Titans ended 11th in the last season. Siddharth Desai looked like the lone warrior in the team and scored 217 raid points, whereas others were nowhere close to him. It was only after seven matches that they could register their first win. 

Auctions 2021

Out of the experienced players, the Titans' management showed faith only in raider Rakesh Gowda, while the FBM was used on Desai. All others were sacked. Another big buy for them was Rohit Kumar, who has an abundance of experience under his belt. The auctions also marked the return of Sandeep Kandola to the team, who had played with them in season 2 but was banned for four years for doping violations. 

Expectations

They do seem to possess a decent unit, but it depends on whether the team can collectively handle the pressure or not. In the past too, they have had teams to win, but later on, failed to impress. The management would be hoping that things change under new skipper Rohit Kumar, who had led the Bengaluru Bulls for a few seasons.
