PKL 10: Can a change in starting 7 bring a change in fortunes for Tamil Thalaivas?

The Tamil Thalaivas have been one of the most disappointing teams this season, as they have not played well and have faltered like anything. They are currently in the eleventh position with just two wins and seven losses in the nine matches that they have contested. The Tamil Thalaivas have only thirteen points to their name and a score difference of -41.

The main issue has been in the defense area, as the defenders have continued to make unsuccessful tackles and leak points. The Raiders have played well, scoring points, but the lack of performance from defense has hurt them.

They will play their next league match against Puneri Paltan, the most successful team in the league this season, and it is going to be a huge challenge for them. Below is their predicted starting seven for the upcoming match against the Pune team.

Center: Narender

Narender has been the Tamil team’s best raider this season. He has played against all odds and shown his raiding skills to the whole world of Kabaddi. Narender played exceptionally well in the team’s one-point loss in the previous match, scoring 12 points.

Left Cover: Mohit

Mohit, who was expected to be one of the best defenders of season 10 of PKL, has disappointed a lot. He has just five tackle points in seven matches and has been the weakest link in the Tamil squad.

Right Cover: M. Abhishek

The right cover defender, Abhishek, has the same story as Mohit. Abhishek was also given a huge responsibility but has not yet shown up. He has nine tackle points in as many matches and has leaked points continuously.


Left Corner: Sahil Gulia

Captain Sahil Gulia has been the best defender for his team in this season of the Pro Kabaddi League. Amidst all the poor performances, Sahil has kept his individual performance alive and played well, giving his all for the team. He has 33 tackle points in nine matches.

Right Corner: Sagar

Saar, who missed out on the starting seven in the previous match and took a high-five coming in as a substitute, is predicted to be in the starting seven for this game. Sagar has not had a great season so far, with 23 points in eight matches.

Left: Ajinkya Pawar

Ajinkya Pawar started out as the top raider for the Tamil Thalaivas but failed to gain momentum, and his performance has dropped in the last few matches. He has 63 raid points in nine matches for his team.

Right In: Himanshu Singh

The young raider, Himanshu Singh, scored zero raid points in the previous match and was substituted in the 17th minute of the game, but we think he has immense talent and will be given another chance to prove it.

Predicted Starting Seven of the Tamil Thalaivas against the Puneri Paltan: Narender, Mohit, M. Abhishek, Sahil Gulia (c), Sagar, Ajinkya Pawar, and Himanshu Singh. The task is not going to be easy for the Tamil Thalaivas, but they need a victory in this match at any cost to keep their hopes of the playoffs alive.
