Tamil Thalaivas vs Haryana Steelers Match Preview, Team News, Lineups
Pro Kabaddi League 2018 | Tamil Thalaivas vs Haryana Steelers
Tow teams who have had a disappointing season six will square off for one last time in this edition of Pro Kabaddi League. This would be the final game of the season for both these sides and a win here for either side won’t hinder the propositions for any team in both Zones.
Let’s have a brief overview of a disappointing season for both these sides;
Tempted as one of the strongest units this season, Tamil Thalaivas never looked settled in the whole season. After having a defining start in the opening game against the reigning champions Patna Pirates, they lost 5 on the bounce at home which definitely ruffled their momentum.
This wasn’t the start they expected with a star-studded line-up they have, but things never looked good for them as they found themselves on the 5th or 6th position for the majority of the season. Their dismal performance this season could be accounted by the fact that they never won two games on the bounce and were creeping all the way.
Matches Played: 21
Top performer: Ajay Thakur (186 Points)
Getting a big blow in the form of skipper Surinder Nada who was sidelined from the whole season due to injury, Haryana Steelers named their premier raider and the million dollar pick Monu Goyat as their skipper for the rest of the season.
This move backfired as they had a horrific start to their campaign losing 4 of their opening six matches. Not only the team but Monu Goyat’s individual prowess was hindered as well as he could not perform to the price tag and potential he possesses.
Alike Thalaivas, they too were unable to win 2 games in succession throughout the season and coming into this game on the back of 4 straight defeats, their chances of signing off a disappointing season with a win look bleak.
Matches Played: 21
Top performer: Vikas Khandola (162 Points)
