Puneri Paltan vs Tamil Thalaivas Match Preview, Team News, Lineups
Pro Kabaddi League 2018 | Puneri Paltan vs Tamil Thalaivas
Puneri Paltan will next take on Zone B’s bottom-placed Tamil Thalaivas in the interzonal match which will be played at Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex in Pune. The Pune leg has two more matches left and then the action will shift to the third leg in Patna.
Puneri Paltan weren’t hindered by the home leg demons who chased down Haryana Steelers and Tamil Thalaivas in their respective home leg earlier in the tournament. Thalaivas were only able to win a solitary game in their home leg whereas, Haryana Steelers were only able to win two.
The Thalaivas have had the worst opening to their campaign this year as they have only managed to win their opening game and lost 5 on the bounce. They brought in Sukesh Hegde in their last game who missed out the opening 5 encounters for the Thalaivas due to injury but, he could not produce his magic as he could only manage 2 raid points.
Puneri Paltan have been brisk in their approach and have been consistent with their game. After losing their opening home game to Gujarat Fortunegiants by 34-28, they came back strongly with three wins on the trot against Jaipur Pink Panthers, UMumba and last win against Bengaluru Bulls.
With Thalaivas going through a lean patch, a match against an in-form Paltan’s at this juncture might hurt their cause even more. Puneri Paltan meanwhile, will look for their fourth win in succession at home.

Defenders: The duo of Girish Maruti Ernak and Ravi Kumar has done wonders for Puneri Paltan’s so far, together they have picked many tackle points and are the reason why they have not let opposition raiders score more raiding points in their presence.
Other options here are Shubham Shinde who displayed great tackling skills with 3 points to his name in the game against Bengaluru Bulls. Amit Hooda has been a confident performer as Tamil’s reliance on him is the most. D Gopu and Sunil can also be considered.
All-rounders: From the last three games, Monu has been doing the noise for Puneri Paltan from this position. In the last match against Bengaluru, he got a total of 4 points for his side.
Another pick here is Manjeet Chillar who has a quiet tournament so far but has been a regular inclusion in the starting seven.
Raiders: With 81 raid points to his name, Nitin Tomar is the current holder of the green arm-band this season. Ajay Thakur too is a vital pick here who has got the second most raid points this season after Nitin Tomar.
Other valuable picks here with fewer credit points are Surjeet Singh, Sukesh Hegde, MS Athul and Akshay Jadhav.
