The UP Yodha is more or less out of contention for the next round as they are placed 11th in the points table after playing 17 matches. They have won just 4 matches this season. Even though the Yodha had Pardeep Narwal and some of the best defenders, they could not put up a collective performance. The freak injury to Surender Gill made matters worse as they kept on slipping down the points table. On the other hand, the Tamil Thalaiva recharged themselves in time to win 4 consecutive matches. But fatigue caught up with them as they lost to the Jaipur Pink Panthers. 

Still the Thalaiva is placed 9th in the points table with just an outside chance to make it to the next round. They need to win their remaining 5 matches. The Tamil Thalaiva will be up against the UP Yodha who won a match after a long time. Though Pardeep Narwal could not even open his account, the UP defense singlehandedly won the game for them. If Tamil Thalaiva has to win this match, they will need their raiders Narender Kandola and Ajinkya Pawar to fire. This will be an exciting contest as the Thalaiva will be desperate while UP will try and spoil their party.

Tamil Thalaivas Preview

Tamil Thalaiva is the epitome of hard luck. Despite their team trying everything, the Thalaiva has not been able to replicate the success of Season 9 when they reached the semi-finals. The Tamil Thalaiva has to play within its limitations as they do not have any superstars in their ranks. Young raiders Narender Kandola and Ajinkya Pawar have worked overtime. They have also used the services of young raiders like Himanshu Singh and Himanshu Narwal. Currently placed 9th in the points table, the men in yellow are staring down the barrel with just 7 victories from 17 matches. The Thalaiva had won 4 consecutive matches which helped them move to the 9th spot. But they suffered a breakdown against the defending champions. Jaipur defeated the Thalaiva by a margin of 15 points. This was a big blow to the Tamil fans whose hopes went through the roof last week as their team won back to back games. Raider Narender Kandola scored a Super 10 but Ajinkya Pawarwas below average and so was their defense. Captain Sagar could score just 1 tackle points while the others disappointed too. Tamil Thalaiva can win matches only on the basis of team efforts. 

Tamil Thalaiva has a decent success rate of about 44% in team tackles which is second best to topper Puneri Paltan. That is their strength. Defender Sahil Gulia has been impressive apart from captain Sagar. But their chances of winning increase if the defense is able to resonate as a unit.

 Their efficiency in team raids is about 36% which is below average. They tried the option of raider Nitin Singh in the last match. But the onus of earning raid points is on Narender Kandola and Ajinkya Pawar. Both these raiders were extremely successful last year, especially in the second half of the tournament. They will have to repeat the same in the remaining matches. Tamil Thalaiva has a very good record against the UP Yodha. Additionally, the Yodha is struggling which can be exploited by the men in yellow. Tamil Thalaiva defeated the UP Yodha by a huge margin in their first encounter of this season. This contest will be crucial to recharge the Thalaiva so that they can make a daring comeback in the top 6 by winning all its remaining matches.

U.P. Yoddha Preview

UP Yodha has under-performed in season 10. With one of the best combination of raiders and defenders, the Yodha has simply wasted its chances. Currently placed 11th in the points table, its future in the season looks bleak. They have been able to win just 1 out of their last 5 matches. It is hard to believe that a team with the likes of Pardeep Narwal, Surender Gill, Sumit and Nitesh Kumar are not able to forge a winning partnership. 

UP started quite well in the season, but they got caught up in a mental trap. It may be fatigue or lack of creative strategy, the UP Yodha has failed on all counts. Just as season9, Pardeep Narwal was expected to be targeted by their opponents. Hence raider Surender Gill took the lead while Pardeep played second fiddle. This formula worked as Surender has earned 87 raid points from 10 matches. But since then, Surender has not been available due to a freak injury. UP Yodha has used young raider Gagana Gowda in his place.

Pardeep Narwal displayed his class in a couple of matches by scoring Super 10’s. But somehow the Yodha has not been able to win. Nothing seems to be working for this team. Though the UP Yodha surprised itself as it defeated U Mumba in their last match. The margin of victory was 16 points. Left corner Sumit was instrumental in this victory with 7 tackle points. 

Their success rate in team raids is just about 36% while their efficiency in team tackles is about 40%.

 But the UP Yodha has conceded 634 team points which has been their biggest drawback. They have also conceded 26 all-outs in 17 matches. Though they have also inflicted 20 all-outs, all their efforts have gone down the drain. UP Yodha will be up against the Tamil Thalaiva who lost their last match. UP has won 5 out of their 14 encounters with the Thalaiva. UP Yodha can only spoil Tamil Thalaiva’s party by defeating them in this match.

Welcome to the single header at Dehi as the Tamil Thalaiva take on the UP Yodha. Tamil will be eager to get back to winning ways. They stumbled upon the Pink Panthers in their last match after a handsome 4 match run. Raiders Narender Kandola and Ajinkya Pawar will work in unison as one of them will score a Super 10. The Tamil defense will bounce back in style. Left corner Himanshu, Captain Sagar and Sahil Gulia will trouble the UP raiders. The Thalaiva may inflict an early all-out. 

UP will trail at half-time. Pardeep Narwal will have another bad day at the office while young Gagana Gowda will shine. UP might be forced to use raider Anil Kumar in the second half. Defender Sumit will be precise but the other defenders will struggle. The Yodha will concede at least 2 all-outs in the match as they will succumb to the pressure as the match progresses.

Tamil Thalaiva will win.
