Welcome to the clash of teams desperate to for a victory. Tamil Thalaiva lost to the Jaipur Pink Panthers while the Gujarat Giants lost to the Haryana Steelers. This has made life difficult for both teams in this season. This will be a DoD match for both teams. Gujarat fought tooth and nail in their last match. Fazel Attrachali scored 7 tackle points while right cover Dipak Singh scored a Hi 5. But their raiders could not earn enough. Hence Gujarat lost by a margin of just 4 points. 

The Tamil Thalaiva too suffered a setback as they lost to the Jaipur Pink Panthers. The Thalaiva were high on confidence as they had won 4 consecutive matches. They could not maintain the intensity as they got hammered by 15 points. Has the Thalaiva run out of gas? They will be up against a difficult rival in the form of Gujarat Giants. The Thalaiva gave them a tough time in season 9, but lost to the Giants in their first encounter of season 10. As both teams need to win this match to stay alive for the next round, fans can expect fireworks and mayhem on the mat.

Gujarat Giants Preview

The Gujarat giants are running out of time in this season. They are placed 6th in the points table with just a few games left. They lost to the Haryana Steelers in their last match. It was a tough game where the Gujarat raiders ran out of gas. None of the raiders could score a Suepr 10. The Giants were at their defensive best but conceded a lot of points. They led by 11 points at half-time only to suffer a terrible breakdown in the last 20 minutes of the match. They conceded 2 all-outs in the second half which took the game away from them. This puts the Giants in a terrible position. The Bengal Warriors and Bengaluru Bulls are breathing down their neck for a place in the next round. Though Gujarat Giants defeated the Tamil Thalaiva once in this season, they have generally struggled against the men in yellow. This will be one of the biggest test for the Giants.

Captain Fazel Attrachali has been deadly in the left corner while defenders Sombir and Ravi Kumar have impressed. Both veterans have executed 79 successful tackles in 17 matches. Raider Sonu was a bright spot for the Gujarat Giants in the first few matches. He has earned 52 raid points in 7 matches, but he has been decoded by the opponents in the last few games. Hence the Giants have not found any replacement for his Super raids. Gujarat are more dependent on raider Prateek Dahiya for their raid earnings.  

Gujarat has a raiding efficiency of 34% which has come down in the last few matches. Their success rate in team tackles is about 41%.

The Giants have inflicted 20 all-outs in 17 games while conceding 15. 

Gujarat were placed comfortably at the 4th spot in the points table a few weeks ago, but they have slipped to the 6th spot after losing 3 out of their last 5 matches. With their raid earnings dwindling, the Gujarat Giants are running out of options. They have worked hard over the last 2 months to reach a point where they can catapult themselves in to the next round. But they are at the crossroads as their main source of earning has come down drastically.

Tamil Thalaivas Preview

One of the most vibrant teams of season 10 is struggling. The Tamil Thalaiva started the season with some spectacular results. They shocked Dabang Delhi in their first match and then posted a victory against the Telegu Titans. After winning 4 consecutive matches, the Thalaiva lost to the Jaipur Pink Panthers. Though Narender Kandola scored a Super 10, their support raiders could not complement his efforts. The Tamil defense too was lackluster as defender Mohit scored 3 points without much support from the others. Tamil Thalaiva can consider this as a bad day at the office. But time is running out for the men in yellow as they are placed 9th in the points table after playing 17 matches. They have to win all their remaining games to stake claim to the next round. Tamil Thalaiva was winning due to the exploits of their raiders Narender Kandola and Ajinkya Pawar. Captain Sagar and Sahil Gulia have been rock solid but one can’t win a match without raiding income. 

The men in yellow need to revitalize themselves urgently. They do not have an alternative plan of action. 

Their raiding efficiency is just about 36% while their success rate in team tackles is about 44% which is second to the best team, Puneri Paltan.

They have conceded 15 all-outs in 17 matches apart from conceding 595 team points. 

The defense seems to be sorted for the Thalaiva, but their raiding has been fragile and predictable. Raider Ajinkya Pawar and Narender Kandola have to work overtime against the Gujarat Giants. Unfortuanetly the Thalaiva does not have many raiding options in its squad. Apart from raider Jatin Phogat they have the options of Selvamani, Vishal, M Lakshman and Satish Kannan. But they seem to be unsure about their strategy. Should the Thalaiva go all out or totally on the defensive? 

They have to answer this very quickly as they take on the Gujarat Giants. The Thalaiva lost to the Giants in their first meeting of season 10. That was a defeat by just 3 points. Hence the Thalaiva needs to back its players so that they can upset the Giants. This is a crunch match for the men in yellow.

Tamil Thalaiva face a do-or-die situation as they take on the Gujarat Giants. The Thalaiva has to come up with a new raiding combination. It will be interesting to see how they formulate this. Narender Kandola and Ajikya Pawar will struggle but they will manage to earn. Captain Sagar and Sahil Gulia will be aggressive from the beginning and they will not allow the trouble the Gujarat raiders. Tamil Thalaiva may just be able to exploit the weak Gujarat raiding and they will force an all-out very early in the match. 

The Giants will not be able to score freely against a tough Tamil defense. Fazel Attrachali and Sombir will tackle successfully while right cover Dipak Singh will deliver a standout performance. This will be a low scoring match as both teams have issues with their raiding. But the second half may witness some fireworks if the Thalaiva decides to counter attack. Unforced errors from both sides will add to the entertainment.

Tamil Thalaiva will win.
