In Match 31 of Pro Kabaddi 2019, the Telugu Titans will look to score a comeback to their winning ways, when they take on defending champions, the Bengaluru Bulls, at Patliputra Sports Complex in Patna on Thursday. Telugu Titans have gone for aggressive tackles (23 tackles per match) and the poor form of their lead defenders Vishal and Abozar has made it worse for them in the initial three matches. However, in the last two matches (15 tackles per match), the Titans seemed to have learnt from their mistakes and have waited for the right opportunities to tackle their opponents. On the other hand, Bengaluru Bulls would be riding high on Pawan Sehrawat's form, who scored crucial raid points for his team as others failed to make any mark.
