Tamil Thalaivas
League Record: W L W L L
League Position: Zone B, 6th position

The Tamil Thalaivas haven’t experienced the best debut season so far, but things are beginning to look up with 2 wins in their last 5 games. This is the best time for the Tamil Thalaivas to gather up any confidence or form that they can, because their next opponents are one of the best-performing teams in the contest so far, the Gujarat Fortunegiants. 

With 9 wins in 15, the Gujarat Fortunegiants have mounted a serious campaign for the title of the Pro Kabaddi League 2017 and their performances have seen them firmly placed as one of the favourites for the title. Rightly so, the team from Gujarat has been on a rampage, counting a number of wins where their opponents were trailing with large deficits in the score. 

The Thalaivas defence will need to neutralize a powerful Gujarat offense that includes raiders Sachin, skipper Sukesh Hegde and Chandran Ranjit, a task that is far easier said than done with the pedigree of performances they’ve managed to put together. The Fortunegiants defence is anchored by Fazel Atrachali, who has dropped few false notes so far in this competition. With a wealth of talent and the confidence to back it up, the Fortunegiants are poised to be the most challenging rival the Thalaivas will face yet.

League Record: W D L W W
League Position: Zone A, 2nd Position

The Gujarat Fortunegiants have experienced an entirely different story from fellow league debutants and upcoming rivals, the Tamil Thalaivas. In what is generally regarded as an ultra-competitive league, the Fortunegiants have strayed away from type by accumulating wins by large margins and match winning streaks that seemed almost unbreakable. With 9 wins off just 15 matches played the Fortunegiants are on a rampage for the title and the Thalaivas have the tough task of being the next team to try and stop them. 

The Fortunegiants will have cause to worry, as the Tamil Thalaivas are the most unpredictable team in the league, pulling off victories in situations they had no right to. The Fortunegiants will have their hands full with the Thalaivas talented captain Ajay Thakur in offence. His brilliant performances this season will be a cause for concern to the Fortunegiants defence. 

In the Thalaivas defence, C. Arun and Amit Hooda will do their best to neutralize the opposing offence. The Fortunegiants will have to rely on more than just aggression to overpower these powerful, fast players from the Thalaivas.
