smooth ride at home The reality though was that the first day was the only good outing in what has been a horrendous week so far at Hyderabad for the hosts They were playing a match everyday save for the one-day break and the Titans collapsed under the punishing schedule The week has also given us some thrilling matches Individual and collective brilliance was on display in abundance As action now shifts to Nagpur here’s what was on offer in the opening week: Match of the week: Gujarat Fortunegiants 27-27 Haryana Steelers: It was a story of two teams who were just not ready to give up On Wednesday the Fortunegiants and Steelers gave the Gachibowli crowd a match to savour There were minutes that belonged completely to Gujarat only to be followed by those dominated by Haryana The latter even came back from a 20-13 deficit to level the match 23-23 After that they went blow for blow and shared the spoils in the end Raid of the week: Pardeep Narwal’s Super Raid vs Telugu Titans : The fourth match of the week between Telugu Titans and Patna Pirates can be given a ‘Before and After’ division with Pardeep Narwal’s Super Raid being the dividing line With just a few minutes left on the
