another forgettable season for the Telugu Titans Placed fifth in the six-team Zone B the Titans managed only seven wins in their 22 matches while losing 12 By Friday the last group match the qualification bracket was already beyond them They did earn some consolation points against Warriors in their third tie of the season but finished at 52 points eight off the third-placed team in their group the Uttar Pradesh Yoddhas The Telugu Titans in action during PKL 2017 Image courtesy: Prokabaddicom Though they started the season with a win they quickly went on the slippery slide down This Pro Kabaddi season opened at their home ground – the Gachibowli Stadium in Hyderabad But rather than it giving Titans a head-start they were engulfed in doubt as they lost five of the six home matches They never managed to recover from the early losses and the string of inconsistent performances made up for a season that was far from ideal What went wrong It was the lack of a team effort that was the Telugu Titans’ undoing Throughout the season they lacked coordination in the lineup as the young squad struggled to gel Instead the team was pulled on mainly through pieces of individual brilliance In the first season of PKL Rahul Chaudhari had emerged as the star raider and quickly went on to become the face of the League He continued in that vein using his speed and smarts to torment defenders The 24-year-old picked up 184 raid points along with nine tackle points in the 22 matches – putting him fourth in the leaderboard for most points earned by a single player But Chaudhuri who has worn the captain’s armband for the past four years was a lone ranger in a rather dysfunctional team The Titans’ next best raider Nilesh Salunke could manage only 91 raid points Meanwhile on the defensive front there was the skill and daring of Vishal Bharadwaj earned him 71 tackle points – the third best defender in the season Whereas the more seasoned Rohit Rana who was pipped to be the team’s defensive spearhead managed a weak 24 tackles – just over an average of one tackle point per game The want-away captain For all of Chaudhuri’s skills as a raider he hasn’t quite been a leader of men At the same time he hasn’t enjoyed it either The role of the skipper requires a player to ensure he gets as much time on the mat to marshall the troops in each situation This need however clashes with the role Chaudhari plays in the team as their leading raider Always the first to enter a raid and the one to walk into the opposition half for a crucial bout against defenders there is always the risk that Chaudhari can get caught and sent to the bench The 24-year-old himself prefers being in the thick of the action rather than delegating duty In Rakesh Kumar however the Titans did have a player with exemplary leadership skills – after all he had led the national team to two Asian Games gold medals Yet Kumar now 35 has been struggling with both form and injuries A back strain bogged him down for a majority of the season and he ended up playing just 10 matches Instead Chaudhari was left to guide a young and inexperienced team Rising star Vishal Bharadwaj had featured in the fourth season of the PKL as well but managed to play just two matches This time around he became the most prominent defender on the Titans’ half Just 20 and brimming with confidence to tackle the most popular of raiders he didn’t shy from a challenge He was the silver lining in a gloomy season for the Titans Strong and willing to take on the responsibility the youngster got on with the job even though the team’s challenge was usually crumbling around him In past seasons one criticism of the Titans has been their tendency of filling the team with raiders but ignoring their defence Bharadwaj’s discovery bucked that trend What needs to improve The Titans have a team buzzing with energy – a credit to the youthful lineup But they lack the tempering of a good leader It’s a mantra that has been crucial in the success of PKL winning team The best example is U Mumba skipper Anup Kumar The veteran isn’t a chart-topper when it comes to scoring points Instead he’s a master tactician who analysis the game while on the mat assigns tasks based on situations and knows how to get the best out of his teammates The Patna Pirates team of season three had scouted and brought out of retirement 2002 Asian Games winner Manpreet Singh to serve as captain Post the team’s title winning run Manpreet himself mentioned that his task was ‘not to score points but to guide the players while on the mat’ The Titans who in five seasons have never made the finals needs to start looking at building a strong unit and instilling a strong team ethic rather than banking on individuals Hyderabad: Batting great Sachin Tendulkar on Wednesday said he never thought the Indian Premier League (IPL) would become so big since its inception in 2008 and lauded the cash-rich T20 tournament for spreading the game to non-cricketing countries Sachin Tendulkar VVS Laxman and Virender Sehwag during the IPL 2017 opening ceremony Sportzpics "I can’t believe that IPL has completed 10 years This is a big achievement and it would not have been possible without the support of spectators When IPL was announced in 2007 and when we played for the first time in 2008 honestly I never thought IPL will be so big" said the iconic cricketer during the opening ceremony of the IPL-10 in Hyderabad Tendulkar and three other Indian cricket icons – Sourav Ganguly Virender Sehwag and VVS Laxman – were felicitated by the BCCI for their contribution to the game Another Indian legend Rahul Dravid was also to be felicitated but he could not make it to the ceremony as he was busy with his duty as team mentor of Delhi Daredevils "It is a matter of pride that in India a big tournament like IPL has happened and which the whole world has taken notice of I thought it won’t be as competitive as it is right now But as the tournament progressed its competitiveness its competitive juice inside sportsmanship have gone to a different level" said Tendulkar "The spectators are enjoying The best part of IPL is that cricket has gone to those countries which has got nothing to do with cricket That has happened due to IPL" said Tendulkar who was part of the title-winning Mumbai Indians team in 2011 and 2013 He said all the teams are well-balanced and the side that utilises its resources the best and which can keep injuries to its critical players to the minimum can win the tournament Laxman felt the IPL has revolutionised the dynamics of cricket with new fans and new followers including the purists embracing T20 cricket "The mindset of cricketers has changed They are more positive the batsmen have become more aggressive The bowlers know how to bowl defensive line and length The biggest gain has been that of uncapped Indian domestic players as they are rubbing shoulders with top players from India and abroad" Ganguly said that the atmosphere in IPL matches has not been inferior to the one experienced at football World Cups "Hopefully we will be there in the 20th edition of the IPL Today when a young player come out and play in front of 30 to 40 thousand screaming spectators he has to score under pressure and it will take his game to another level IPL is taking Indian cricket forward and it will get bigger and bigger" said Ganguly Sehwag said that the IPL has succeeded in entertaining cricket fans "I love IPL I am the only one to play a game of cricket in all formats in a similar way I never changed my mindset I always tried to attack in Test ODI and T20 I believe in one thing that if you are playing cricket you should entertain people" The word ‘historic’
