Tamil Thalaivas vs Telugu Titans Match PreviewTamil Thalaivas
Team record so far: L D L D W
League position: Zone B, 6th position
The Tamil Thalaivas are facing a rough turn of form. Having registered just a single victory in their past five matches, the Thalaivas are hoping for a reversal in their next game against the Telugu Titans. These two teams faced off in the opening match of the Pro Kabaddi League 2017, with the Titans defeating the Thalaivas 32-27.
The Titans’ Rahul Chaudhari will be a major point of concern for the Thalaivas. The Titans Captain has had an exemplary season and is currently on top of the raid points table with 83 points in 11 games. The Thalaivas could come up against a defence that features Farhad and Mohsen, the Iranian duo being one of their cautious pairings in defence this season. This match can end up being a mixed bag for the Thalaivas, as the Titans lack of a fixed 7 starters makes them hard to predict.

The Titans come into this match with equal bad fortune as their rivals. Having lost 4 of their last 5 matches, the Telugu Titans are a drastically different side from the one that faced their upcoming rivals in the opening match of the Pro Kabaddi League 2017. The performances of skipper Rahul Chaudhari and their win in the previous game will inspire a sense of optimism.
Thalaivas' captain Ajay Thakur has been in fine form despite his team’s fortunes and will look to continue this streak in the match against the Titans. Amit Hooda and C.Arun will be a defensive wall that the Titans will have to work hard to scale. The Telugu Titans best hope would be to capitalize on the low confidence in the Thalaivas squad, but that strategy would backfire should their opponents bring their A-game.
