This has been a season of surprises, entertainment and young players. Both the teams have youngsters performing consistently and are peaking at the right time. While the Thalaivas are in the 4th position with 22 points from 7 games while the Haryana Steelers fresh from their victory over Bengal Warriors are in the 6th place with 20 points.

This is expected to be a hard fought match as both the Thalaivas and the Steelers are building momentum that will take them to the play offs. While the Thalaivas ride on a strong defence lead by veteran Surjit Singh, the Steelers have found their anchor man in Surinder Nada.

Each of the Steelers is performing and contributing. Raiders Vikash Kandola and Meetu stole 19 points together in their last match while the defence contributed to 16 points. This was a truly inspiring performance by them.

Thalaivas would certainly like to beat the Steelers but depending on how the match progresses, they may play it safe in the end.

Tamil Thalaivas Preview

Their journey is just like a movie, it has lots of emotion, drama, comedy, tragedy, suspense and happy ending too this season. They are sitting comfortably in the 4th position.

Some Statistics-

They have conceded 227 points which is the second highest this season.

They have inflicted 9 all outs.

They have earned 72 tackle points.

Surjeet is the best defender this season with 22 successful tackles.

They are defence heavy but add to the flavour with some spicy raiders like Manjeet, Ajinkya Pawar, MS Athul and Prapanjan.

Bhavai Rajput has given them more teeth in raiding and this has made the Thalaivas even more dangerous. The only issue is their tendency to concede too many points though they fight back well and achieve enough to win or to tie the match.

They wear Blue and Yellow jerseys alternately but whenever they enter the mat in yellow, they look unbeatable.

Haryana Steelers Preview

The Steelers are an entertaining lot who have fought hard in every match. They have come up with innovative plans to unsettle the opposition and it has worked most of the times. They are 6th in the points table with 20 points and are gaining momentum every match. Their biggest achievement was when they got the better of defending champions Bengal Warriors. This must have given them loads of confidence.

Meetu and Vikash Kandola contributed 19 raid points.

Defenders collectively earned 16 tackle points.

Defenders Surinder Nada and Jaideep have earned 34 tackle points together.

7 Super Tackles and 6 all outs inflicted.

They are the team in form. Raider Vikash Kandola has got an able partner in Meetu along with all rounder Rohit Gulia and they have wrecked havoc. They are also very fluid in the pace of raiding thus upsetting the opposition's rhythm.

Left corner Surender Nada has been inspirational while Jaideep is unbeatable most of the times. Defender Mohit has also been exceptional which his blocks, hip hold and ankle hold’s. They would like to continue the same form against the Thalaivas who are known to play safe in the end. If they keep the Thalaivas behind through the match, Steelers will steal the show.

A high scoring and action packed match on hand as the Steelers would like to play aggressive against the Thalaivas. Steelers have many players in form and this will work to their advantage. They defence is very strong and raiders have a high strike rate.

Thalaivas on the other hand have also been a team in form. Their only concern is that they are not able to earn enough raid points to support the actions of the defenders.

This will be a contest between the best defenders of the season, Haryana may have a slight edge due to better raiders. Ideally this should be another Tie, but……

Haryana Steelers will win by a slender margin.
