Despite having star players like Ajay Thakur, Manjeet Chillar, Jasvir Singh and Amit Hooda, Tamil Thalaivas lost their fourth match in a row in their home leg (Chennai) of Pro Kabaddi League Season 6.

Tamil Thalaivas started their campaign with a victory over the defending champions Patna Pirates but then lost four back-to-back matches against UP Yoddha, Telugu Titans, Bengaluru Bulls, and Bengal Warriors at the end of Chennai Leg.

Veteran players like Manjeet Chillar and Jasvir Singh failed to live up to their reputations so far.

With 59 raid points and three super 10s in 5 matches of Pro Kabaddi League Season 6, Captain Ajay Thakur is the lone performer for Tamil Thalaivas.

Ajay Thakur has done phenomenally well so far. If he gets support from his fellow raider Athul MS, the Thalaivas can perform much better.

Tamil Thalaivas defence needs to come up with good plans otherwise it would be difficult for them to qualify for the playoffs.

All responsibility lies on the senior players. Manjeet Chhillar and Amit Hooda have to figure a way out to make the defence work.

The Tamil Thalaivas have a five-day break before their next match, which should give them enough time to introspect and get their team on track.

The backbone of the Thalaivas’ defence is looking very weak as both covers of Thalaivas appear unsettled, and defenders like Chillar and Hooda have failed to get tackle points for the team at crucial moments.

Tamil Thalaivas will be keen to get their momentum back as the tournament is big and the players they have can turn around the tables.

Tamil Thalaivas squad: Ajay Thakur (C), Amit Hooda, C. Arun, D Pradap, Sukesh Hegde, Darshan J, Manjeet Chillar, Jasvir Singh, K Jayasselan, Atul MS, Chan Sik Park, Anil Sharma, Abhinandan Chandel, D Gopu, Vimal Raj and Jae Min Lee
