In Match 57 of Pro Kabaddi 2019, Jaipur Pink Panthers will lock horns with Telugu Titans at Thayagraj Indoor Stadium in New Delhi on Saturday. Titans’ Siddharth Desai didn’t have the best of starts while playing for Telugu Titans in PKL 2019. In the first three matches, he averaged just six raid points and had 40% of failed raids. Since then, his performance has been on the rise in the subsequent matches. Telugu Titans started their Pro kabaddi 2019 campaign without a win in first six matches. However, they are unbeaten in their previous three matches. This is mainly because their lead raider has started to fire. In the last 3 matches, Siddharth Desai has averaged 9.7 raid points and has a failed raid% of just 18.
