Tamil Thalaiva and the Bengal Warriors have under-performed in this season. Tamil started the season with a big win over Dabang Delhi. But they fizzled out mid-season. Tamil Thalaiva have won 8 out of their 21 matches. They could have easily won another 3-4 matches, if the Thalaiva could have displayed a better team effort. Bengal Warriors too could not maintain the consistency through the season. With just 9 victories from 21 matches, the former champions could not gather enough points to qualify. The Bengal Warriors could not deliver the knock-out punch even though they had Maninder Singh and defender Shumbham Shinde in their squad. 

As both teams are out of the race for the eliminators, Tamil Thalaiva and Bengal Warriors would be eager to entertain their fans. Both teams may try out new players as this will be their last league match of this season. Both teams gave a tough fight to their opponents in their last match. Bengal Warriors lost a low scoring match to the Puneri Paltan while the Tamil Thalaiva pushed their opponents Dabang Delhi to the limits in a high scoring game. Both teams have a unique style and a huge fan following. They will try to make this match a memorable one.

Tamil Thalaivas Preview

A young and resurgent Tamil Thalaiva started the season with a magnificent win over former champions Dabang Delhi. Veteran Ajinkya Pawar scored a double Super 10, looting 21 points in the match. He was ably supported by Narender Kandola. Both raiders complemented each other shaping the fortunes of their team. They finished 5th last year losing to UP Yodha in the eliminator. But the Tamil Thalaiva could not maintain the intensity over the entire season. They kept on losing crucial games which did not allow them to venture in the top 5 of the points table. The Thalaiva got back to winning ways quite late in the season as they desperately tried to qualify for the next round. Unfortunately it was too late to flourish.

Sagar was one of the best defenders of season 9. He executed 45 successful tackles while partner Sahil Gulia executed 53 successful tackles in 23 matches. But this year, Sagar could not play all the games due to injury. Though Sahil Gulia led the side he could not produce the necessary victories which could have earned them points. Young raider Narender Kandola earned 243 points last year, thus catapulting him among the best raider in the league. This year was just above average for him as he earned just 169 raid points. 

Defenders Sagar and Sahil Gulia did executed 122 successful tackles in 21 matches collectively. But they could not get enough support from their raiders. Tamil Thalaiva gave a tough fight to Dabang Delhi in their last match. Narender Kandola scored 18 raid points and matched Delhi raider Ashu Malik. But the men in yellow fell short of just 3 points as their defense crumbled and their support raiders could not earn enough. 

The Thalaiva does not have a great record against the Bengal Warriors. But over the years, the Tamil Thalaiva has emerged stronger. That is the reason, they were able to beat the Warriors once and forced a TIE in another game last year. The Thalaiva is a dangerous unit which can exploit a weak defense. They displayed a team raid success rate of 52.5% in their first match with a strike rate of 67%. Tamil Thalaiva will unleash their young raiders to loot the Bengal Warriors. It will be epic battle between their defense and Bengal captain Maninder Singh.

Bengal Warriors Preview

The Bengal Warriors started the season with an emphatic win over the Bengaluru Bulls. But their next encounter against the Jaipur Pink Panthers turned out to be a setback. They were forced to TIE the match as Jaipur completely isolated captain Maninder who could score just 4 points in the match. Since then, the Bengal Warriors fortunes have swayed like the pendulum. Bengal lost 10 out of their 21 matches which kept them behind the top 6 teams in the points table. Even though captain Maninder has been consistent earning 188 raid points in the season, the Warriors could not execute a smooth take-off. They hit turbulence regularly even though defender Shubham Shinde executed 60 successful tackles in 20 matches.

Bengal Warriors had tactical issues as they could not match their opponents in many games. Their support raiders too could not earn enough to complement Maninder. Srikant Jadhav could not repeat his exploits in this season. Young raider Nitin Kumar and Vishwas could have been used more efficiently by the Warriors. Bengal lost their last match to the Puneri Paltan. This was a low scoring affair as none of the teams could score above 30 team points. Bengal lost by just 3 points as their defenders failed to flourish. It was shocking to see the Bengal defense earning just 3 points in the entire match. The Warriors will be looking forward to end the season with a victory as they take on the Tamil Thalaiva in their last outing of this season. 

The Warriors could achieve an efficiency of just about 36% in team tackles. They have the best raiding success rate in the season which is about 41%. Even with such a good raiding efficiency, the Bengal Warriors could not qualify for the next round. 

Bengal conceded 789 team points in 21 matches. They inflicted 30 all-outs but conceded 33 while took away all the advantage. 

Bengal have dominated the Thalaiva over the years. They have won 10 out of their 13 encounters. But the Warriors could not beat Tamil Thalaiva even once last year and this indicates that the Warriors may have a tough time on the mat.

Welcome to the final bout for the Tamil Thalaiva and the Bengal Warriors. Both teams have displayed their unique flavor of kabaddi in season 10. Tamil Thalaiva could not get their act in the raiding department while the Warriors faltered in their defense. The Thalaiva will include a lot of youngsters in this match. They will try most of their players in both halves. One of their raiders will score a Super 10 while the others will get an opportunity to display their skills.

The Bengal Warriors too will include a lot of youngsters in their starting 7. Players like Aslam Thambi, Akshay and Kapil Gurjar may get some match time. One of the Bengal raiders too will score a Super 10. This will be an exciting encounter as both teams will be aggressive as this is their last match of the season. Both teams are capable of high scores and this could be another high scoring affair. The winner will get brownie points as both teams cannot go any further in the tournament. This bout will be an entertaining one for fans of both teams.

Tamil Thalaiva will win.
