Coach Sanjeev Baliyan after winning against Telugu Titans said, “No, we did not expect this big victory because of some exceptional players playing in the Telugu Titans squad. In the first half, our raiders, including Arjun Deshwal and Rahul Chaudhari, were phenomenal, which became the reason for our early lead. This was one of the days where our strategy worked brilliantly, and we got the better off our opposition.”
He said, “Telugu Titans are one of the sides that have all the basics covered in terms of raiders and defenders. We know they can win from any point, which is why we didn’t take them lightly from the start. Of course, we didn’t expect this match to be this easy. I would give credit to Sunil, our captain, because of the way he used his raiders.”
As for the points table, Puneri Paltan sit atop with 38 points in 11 matches. Bengaluru Bulls meanwhile are at third with 36 points in 11 matches.
