Tamil Thalaivas
Tamil Thalaivas' lead raider, Rahul Chaudhari disappointed the fans with his performance in the home leg

Star-studded unit of Pro Kabaddi 2019, Tamil Thalaivas failed to live up to the expectations in their home leg of the season. Ajay Thakur's army lost 3 of their 4 home games while their encounter against Puneri Paltan ended in a draw.

The Chennai fans were left disappointed by their team as there was no major improvement in the team's position on the points table after the home leg. They currently hold the 8th position with just 25 points from 10 matches. One of the key reasons behind their failure was the absence of their star all-rounder, Manjeet Chhillar in 3 games.

The team's captain, Ajay Thakur too could not light up the Chennai leg with his raiding skills. Here's a look at the player ratings of Tamil Thalaivas from Chennai leg -


#1 Ajay Thakur - 4/10

The player who was scoring Super 10s every now and then for Tamil Thalaivas, Ajay Thakur has taken a backseat ever since Rahul Chaudhari has joined the team. He has reduced his raid attempts which has resulted in the decrease of his raid points.

In the Chennai leg, he could score only 14 raid points with his best performance coming against Jaipur Pink Panthers. Besides, Thakur's 14 unsuccessful raids would be an alarming sign for the Thalaivas.


#2 Shabeer Bappu - 3/10

Shabeer Bappu featured in the starting seven of the home side only once before local lad V. Ajith Kumar took his place. In the only encounter he played, Bappu scored 3 raid points in his 9 raids.

He came in as a substitute versus Pune and Mumbai but could not contribute anything to the team's score.
