HARYANA VS. TELUGU: INDIAN KABADDI LEAGUE 2021-22, MATCH 77 | PREDICTION, PLAYING 7 AND FANTASY KABADDI TIPS

HARYANA VS. TELUGU: INDIAN KABADDI LEAGUE 2021-22, MATCH 77 | PREDICTION, PLAYING 7 AND FANTASY KABADDI TIPS

On the surface, this may seem a mismatch. Haryana, after a stuttering start to the season, are the league’s in-form team on the back of 3 straight wins. Telugu are right at the bottom of the table. But despite missing Siddharth Desai for most of the season, as many as 8 of their defeats have been by 7 points or less. When the two teams meet in Match 77 of the Indian Kabaddi League at the Sheraton Grand Whitefield in Bengaluru on 25th January, Telugu will know that an upset isn’t beyond them. 

Haryana lost some very close games earlier in the season. Now they average 20 raid points a game and make nearly 10 successful tackles. Vikash Kandola has shown the way in a raiding sense, while Jaideep and Surender Nada have been at the heart of a fine defence.  

Telugu are 6th when it comes to average raid points per game, and they make more successful tackles than many teams higher up the table. What they haven’t been able to do is find the consistency to put together two strong halves and win games. The lack of depth, brutally exposed by Desai’s injury, hasn’t helped.  

The two teams took a win apiece in the 2019 season, before Haryana edged their first meeting of the current campaign. Given the run they’re on, they will start strong favorites. But even without Desai – who scored 30 points against Haryana last season – there is no room for complacency.

Top Fantasy Picks

Defender

  • Jaideep has made more successful tackles than anyone this season. He has 42 tackles, fetching him a total of 45 points at a strike-rate of 57. It’s no coincidence that he has made 13 successive tackles in the 3 consecutive wins that have seen Haryana surge up the table.

All-rounder

  • Rohit Gulia announced his return to form with 7 points in the narrow victory over UP. Though he was disappointing in a few games earlier in the season, his 54 raid points have come at an excellent strike-rate of 60.

Raider

  • Rajnish has had to shoulder the raiding burden for Telugu In Siddharth Desai’s absence. He has done a fine job too, tallying 67 raid points from 8 outings at a strike-rate of 54. His best performance was against Bengal, the reigning champions, when he scored 11 points in a narrow defeat.
