Hello and welcome!
By the end of their home leg last season, Telugu Titans were ragged. Their defence was in tatters and their attack, which was too dependent on Rahul Chaudhari was in shambles. It didn't help them that their home leg was the opening week and they carried forward that form. This season, they are a different team. If they have good results in this home leg, they can actually go ahead and reach the playoffs or even top their Zone table.
