The Tamil Thalaivas have the most amount of points scored in the entire league right now but that is due to the number of matches they have played. It is no surprise that the Thalaivas have also conceded the most number of points in the league as of this time.
The standout player for the Tamil Thalaiavas so far has been Ajay Thakur. He has scored 34 points in the three matches he has played, which is the most for any player in the league, and will at the heart of their Thalaivas raiding strategy.
Thakur recorded two successive super 10’s in the opening two games and has a total of 28 successful raids in the season so far. Ajay Thakur, Athul MS (11 successful raids so far), Anil Kumar, Anand, and Sukesh Hegde seem to be the raiders that will be tasked to attack and break down the Bengaluru defenses.
Of course, Manjeet Chillar and Amit Hooda have been very impressive for the Tamil Thalaivas on the defensive side. The overall quality of the Tamil Thalaivas defense though has been shown to be lacking and could come under pressure from a good attacking opponent.
The Bengaluru Bulls will be led by Rohit Kumar, a raider of the utmost quality. His speed, athleticism, and the ability to perform under pressure make him the standout player on this team. He will have excellent support from Kashling Adake, Pawan Kumar Sehrawat, and Jarish Naik as other good quality raiders.
The side should not have any problem is continuing to serve up quality offensive players to put pressure on the rickety Thailaivas defense. With Mahendar Singh, Raju Lal Choudhary, and Ashish Kumar providing a solid defensive core as well, the Bengaluru Bulls looks like a well-rounded squad.
The biggest concern for them would be to get their strategy and rhythm right from the very first game. The Tamil Thailavas at home are a difficult side to start against but then there are no easy matches in Pro Kabaddi.
The Bengaluru Bulls and the Tamil Thalaivas have played against each other three times in the past with the Bulls winning two times. It will take a brave man to bet against the Bulls extending their lead in the head to head contests this time as well.
Bengaluru Bulls to win.
