Match Analysis

U.P Yoddha won a tense encounter against Dabang Delhi K.C. in their last match to carry some confidence into this game. The strength of the U.P Yoddha side has been its offense and that is exactly what won them the last game as well. Shrikant Jadhav and Prashanth Rai have been brilliant for U.P. Yoddha this season. Both of them managed to score Super-10’s in the last game as the ripped apart a strong Delhi defense.

Now, doing the same against the Tamil Thailavas will be their goal.

Of course, the Tamil Thalaivas have a very potent raiding unit of their own led by Ajay Thakur. Jeeva Kumar from the U.P Yoddha ranks has a history of going up strong against Ajay Thakur and we think this will be one of the decisive battles of this match as well.

The Tamil Thalaivas have a strong side on paper with excellent players in both departments of the game. For some reason, though, they cannot seem to serve up the entire package at the same time. Ajay Thakur has been one of the best Raiders this tournament and continued his good form with 7 raid points against the Gujarat Fortunegiants in the last game as well.

With Jasvir Singh and Sukesh Hegde also in good scoring touch, the Tamil Thailavas are going to come at the U.P Yoddha defense hard.

Manjeet Chillar and Amit Hooda will lead the defense for the Tamil Thailavas. They are going to have a hard time containing Shrikant Jadhav, Prashant Rai, and the others but they certainly have the capability to do so.

Manjeet Chillar has been the best defender for the Tamil Thalaivas with 24 points from 8 games this season.

Key stat

The U.P Yoddha side holds a slim advantage over the Tamil Thalaivas when it comes their historical head to head. There have been four matches played between the two sides of which U.P Yoddha has won 2, lost one, and tied the remaining match.

There is nothing much to separate the two sides based on just their previous records against each other.

Verdict

Both U.P Yoddha and the Tamil Thalaivas are sides that favor attack to defense. This match promises to be a close one because the U.P Yoddha has better team cohesiveness, home advantage, and a potent attack but the Tamil Thalaivas has more individual brilliance in its ranks.

If the Tamil Thalaivas can get their strategy right and is able to withstand the raiding attacks from the U.P Yoddha then its own raiders should be potent enough to get it a victory.

Back the Tamil Thalaivas to win.
