Telugu Titans, the Pro Kabaddi League franchise owned by Veera Sports, have named Vishal Bhardwaj as their captain for the Pro Kabaddi League season 6 (PKL 2018). Telugu Titans have some big players like raiders Nilesh Salunke and Mohsen Maghsoudloujafari, but the Hyderabad-based outfit decided to give an opportunity to Vishal, who has been associated with the team for two seasons now. In the auctions, Telugu Titans used the Right to Match card to bring back their star performer and former captain Rahul Chaudhari. Although Telugu Titans have never lifted the trophy in PKL, they have always been one of the strongest contenders. After a disappointing outing in the previous edition, where the Titans finished 5th in Zone B, Kilaru Jagmohan's men will be looking to make a mark in the 6th edition. A huge responsibility has been given to 21-year-old Vishal to lead the team. In the 22 matches he has played, he has picked up 71 points for his side. The Telugu Titans lock horns with Tamil Thalaivas on October 9 in their inaugural match of PKL Season 6.

Here is Telugu Titans full squad for PKL 2018:
