Tamil Thalaivas are a relatively new team on the Pro Kabaddi League circuit, having made their debut in Season 5. Despite having some good players in their ranks, the Chennai-based team has failed to perform as a unit so far.

However, they have had some stellar names in their Pro Kabaddi team over the years, and in this article, we look at their all-time PKL 7.

The defender played for Tamil Thalaivas in Season 5 and Season 6. He looked impressive in his first season, scoring 36 points from 20 matches. However, he failed to replicate the success in Season 6, scoring just 8 points from 16 appearances.

He then moved on to play for the Telugu Titans in Season 7. Speaking of overall stats, he played 36 matches and contributed 44 tackle points.


Left In - Rahul Chaudhari

The showman needs no introduction as he ranks among the finest raiders to have graced the mat in PKL history. Having spent his first six seasons with the Telugu Titans, he was brought in by the Tamil Thalaivas last season.

In 22 appearances, Chaudhari scored 138 points. However, the team finished at the bottom of the Pro Kabaddi points table.
