Captain Rahul Chaudhuri put up a brave front to power Telugu Titans to an overwhelming 36-28 win over Dabang Delhi KC in the Pro Kabaddi League at the Netaji Indoor Stadium, in Kolkata on Tuesday.

Going for a hard tackle, Chaudhuri sustained an injury in his forehead but he played on with the bandage that affected his sight and scored 16 points, including one super tackle, to lead Telugu Titans to their sixth win from 11 matches.

Having started off with a hattrick of defeats, Telugu Titans are now unbeaten from six matches to jump to second place ahead of former champions Jaipur Pink Panthers on score difference.

This was Delhi’s fifth loss from nine matches as they stay in the seventh place in the eight-team league with their semifinal hopes all but over.

Both the teams were locked eight-all after first quarter but Chaudhuri inflicted an allout on Delhi to give them a handsome 12-8 lead and they were up by six points at the interval.

Their dominance was summed up in the closing minutes when Sandeep Narwal lifted Delhi’s Iran raider Meraj Sheykh with both hands and took him past the bonus line en route to their second win against the same opponents.

There was more setback for the Delhi franchise when Sanket Chavan was stretchered off the field after sustaining an injury.

The Titans captain who scored 14 raid points walked away with three awards — Best Raiders and Best Moment and Man of the Mat, while Jasmer Singh Gulia was adjudged Best Defender for his five tackle points.
