The seventh edition of the Vivo Pro Kabaddi League is all set to raise its curtain from 20 July 2019. Telugu Titans will be up against the U Mumba for the inaugural match of the season at the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium, Hyderabad. Telugu Titans would hope to get a flying start in their home leg when they meet Atrachali led U Mumba.
The Titans will heavily rely on the Season 6’s best debutant award winner Siddharth Desai while U Mumba would look forward to some exploits from Fazel Atrachali. He would further hope to gain support from Sandeep Narwal, Surender Singh and Young Chang Ko. These players will form a formidable defense for the team.
Telugu Titans, on the other hand, will rely on all-rounder Farhad Milaghardan, Vishal Bharadwaj and Abozar Mohajermigani. Hence, both the teams will vie their maiden win when they meet each other for the tournament opener.
