Pro Kabaddi Live Score: Tamil Thalaivas vs. Puneri Paltan | Puneri Paltan take a 15-13 lead over Thalaivas | Live Commentary and Match Updates | 18th August 2019
For the Paltan, Manjeet and Pankaj Mohite have combined to pick up 6 points while Nitin Tomar has contributed only two points. The Thalaivas, on the other hand, have been led by Rahul Chaudhari who has 5 points and will be the 'X-factor' in the second half.
It will be a challenge for Tamil Thalaivas to do well in their home leg as they lost to the Bengaluru Bulls last night in the opener (21-32). Puneri Paltan will certainly come out all guns blazing as they lie at the bottom of the points table.
The highest raid points scorer for Thalaivas, Rahul Chaudhari has 44 raid points in eight matches but has been out of touch from the last few games. Skipper Ajay Thakur has led the raiding unit in his place, but will need to be at his best as he takes on the rock-solid defense of Puneri Paltan.
Debutant Pankaj Mohite has led the offense for Puneri Paltan with 31 raid points in five games. The team might finally give him a chance in the starting seven along with Nitin Tomar who made his comeback from a shoulder injury. Manjeet Dahiya could play as the third raider for the team tonight.
Manjeet Chhillar will lead the defense for Thalaivas with 26 tackle points to his name. Ran Singh scored four tackle points last night versus Bengaluru Bulls showing some signs of a comeback. Mohit Chhillar and Ajeeth will yet again look to stabilize the defense with their contribution.
Left corner Girish Ernak has scored 18 tackle points in seven matches while PO Surjeet Singh has 13 tackle points. The defense is yet to show up and the lack of strength and that front has dented the Paltan. They will be keen on improving their numbers tonight while Hadi Tajik and Jadhav Shahji might get a chance in the playing seven tonight.
Will the Tamil Thalaivas secure their first win at home? Or will Puneri Paltan move up the ladder with a win?
