The Tamil Thalaivas need to find a place for young raider Athul MS as he has shown what he is capable of in the attack.
After a five-day break, the Tamil Thalaivas will take on Bengaluru Bulls in the 19th match of Pro Kabaddi League Season 6. which will be played at the Motilal Nehru School of Sports in Sonepat, Haryana, on Wednesday.
The last time the two teams squared off, Bengaluru Bulls raider Pawan Kumar Sehrawat destroyed the Tamil Thalaivas defence with his impressive 20-point performance.
After a victory over the Tamil Thalaivas in Match 8 of Pro Kabaddi League Season 6, Bengaluru Bulls will look to continuing their unbeaten start.
Star raider Rohit Kumar led Bengaluru Bulls with experienced raider Kashiling Adake and young star Pawan Kumar Sehrawat can easily unsettle the opposition.
Coming from their home leg, Tamil Thalaivas will look to win the first away game, as they have been waiting for a victory since the first match win over defending champions Patna Pirates.
They started their campaign with a big victory but lost four back-to-back matches against UP Yoddha, Telugu Titans, Bengaluru Bulls, and Bengal Warriors at the end of the Chennai leg.
With 59 raid points and three super 10s in five 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 fellow raider Athul MS, the Thalaivas can perform much better.
All responsibility lies on senior players. Manjeet Chhillar, Jasvir Singh and Amit Hooda have to figure a way out to make the defence work.
If the Tamil Thalaivas defence don’t come up with good plans, it will be difficult for them to qualify for the playoffs.
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
