Table toppers Puneri Paltan will get a chance to avenge their defeat to the Tamil Thalaiva. Both these teams met a few days back to script an encounter which went down the wire. The Thalaiva executed a perfect heist beating the Paltan by 1 point.

It was just a few unforced errors by the Puneri defense in the first half that resulted in the loss. They should have at least forced a TIE but lost intensity in the dying moments of the game in front of their home crowd. Aslam Inamdar scored a Super 10 which went in vain. Captain Fazel Attrachali and right cover Abinesh were under par which led to the Paltan losing the game by 1 point. 

The Thalaiva displayed teamwork and mental toughness in this match. Raiders Narender and Ajinkya Pawar conducted successful raids but it was Captain Sagar who was lethal in his tackles which did not allow the Puneri raiders to loot points. Tamil Thalaiva will expect the same in this reverse encounter. Tamil Thalaiva will not provide an opportunity for the Paltan to become avengers.

Puneri Paltan Preview

Table toppers Puneri Paltan have had a dream season. They have worked their way up the points table with sheer teamwork. With Fazel Attrachali taking over the command of the team, the Puneri Paltan has blossomed into an unbeatable unit. But they got a wake-up call in their last game against the Tamil Thalaiva. They lost the match by a solitary point. This was a match that they should have won. 

They will face the Thalaiva once again and this will be a chance to avenge the earlier defeat.

Puneri Paltan has displayed some exciting qualities. They have a bunch of young and dangerous raiders who have complemented each other. Mohit Goyat and Aslam Inamdar have scored 162 points together which includes 7 Super 10’s. 

They also have the services of Pankaj Mohite, Akash Shinde, and all-rounder Nabibaksh for raiding. Though Nabibaksh hasn’t delivered effectively this season. The defense is led by the evergreen Fazel Attrachali. His daring hip holds against the UP Yodha must have terrified opposition raiders. 

He has been supported by defenders Sombir and Abinesh. Left cover Sanket Sawant has also displayed some classic tackles in a few games. The Puneri Paltan will take their last match as an important lesson for the season.

The Paltan has conducted 186 successful team raids out of their total 421 team raids.

They have also executed 101 successful team tackles. 

The Puneri Paltan has earned 218 raid points while conceding 355 team points in 11 games.

These numbers are enough to give confidence to the Paltan fans that their team will avenge the Tamil Thalaiva on their home turf.

Tamil Thalaivas Preview

The Tamil Thalaiva has been the surprise package of the season. Tragedy struck them in their very first game as Pawan Sehrawat was seriously injured. He has since been recuperating while his team has displayed great courage and will to fight. The Thalaiva was a bit nervous post the injury to Pawan, but gradually they realized that the only way to survive was teamwork.

Since then, the Thalaiva has been ruthless and intelligent on the mat. They have won 4 out of their last 4 games and their latest heist was against a strong Puneri Paltan side whom they beat by just 1 point. They beat the defending champions and then forced a TIE with the Bengal Warriors. These victories have made them fearless. 

Their biggest asset has been the emergence of young raider Narender. He has scored 115 points in 11 games which include 6 Super 10’s. He surprised everyone with his quick and lethal moves. Narender has got able support from Ajinkya Pawar and Himanshu Singh. Ajinkya Pawar has become the silent assassin as he executed some unbelievable Super raids in the last few games.

These developments have helped Captain Sagar to return back to form. He along with left corner Sahil Gulia and covers Abinesh and Mohit have made life difficult for the opposition raiders. Sagar has conducted 27 successful tackles in 11 games. This deadly combo of effective raiders and lethal defenders has made the Thalaiva a dangerous team.

The Tamil Thalaiva defenders have executed 11 Super tackles thus proving their mental strength. 

The other aspect that the Thalaiva has to work on is not to concede too many all-outs. They have inflicted just 12 all-outs while conceding 18. 

With their win over the Paltan in the last game, the Thalaiva will be buzzing with confidence. They will once again aim to derail the Paltan in their own backyard and earn valuable points to move up the points table.

Welcome to another exciting contest in season 9 which promises lots of fireworks. The home team has been stung by the Thalaiva a few days ago and the only thing on the menu of the Puneri Paltan will be vengeance.

Tamil Thalaiva will depend on raider Narender who has been mighty impressive. He will exploit the chinks in the armor of the Paltan. Captain Sagar and Abinesh will once again trouble one of the Puneri raiders. Defenders Mohit and Sahil Gulia will have to improve their efficiency. Thalaiva can win this match only if their supporting raiders perform well.

Puneri Paltan will go all out against the Thalaiva very early in the game. They looked lenient in the first half of the last game against the Thalaiva. This resulted in the Paltan losing the game by 1 point. Captain Fazel Attrachali will weave his magic from the left corner. Defenders Sombir and Sanket Sawant will trouble the Tamil support raiders.

This will be a blockbuster as the home team will seek vengeance while the Thalaiva will look forward to booking their ticket in the top 3 in the points table.

Puneri Paltan will win.
