Pro Kabaddi Live Score: Tamil Thalaivas v U Mumba | Live Commentary and Match Updates | 23rd August 2019
With an aim of finishing the home leg on a high note, Tamil Thalaivas lock horns with U Mumba on the final day of the Chennai leg at the Jawaharlal Nehru Indoor Stadium as part of VIVO Pro Kabaddi 2019.
Both Tamil Thalaivas and U Mumba have 24 points from nine matches played and a victory for either team would take them to the 4th spot on the points table.
Rahul Chaudhari has been the top scorer for Thalaivas on the raiding front with 58 raid points. Captain Ajay Thakur is steadily finding his way back to form with 40 raid points and the the team could also bank on young V Ajith Kumar as the support raider in order to challenge the U Mumba defensive lineup.
Abhishek Singh is the top raider for U Mumba with 41 raid points in seven matches so far. They will be testing Arjun Deshwal and Athul MS on the raiding front to form a dependable raiding unit which U Mumba has seemingly lacked this season. Arjun Deshwal will need to support Abhishek Singh, while Athul MS might raid during the Do or Die raids.
Manjeet Chhillar has 26 tackle points in seven matches and in the Thalaivas' top performer from the defensive unit. However, his availability for tonight's must-win game remains doubtful owing to his elbow injury.
Vineet Sharma could continue in his place along with Ajeeth in the right cover. Ran Singh and Mohit Chhillar have remained consistent so far as they look to lead the charge from the Thalaivas' corner positions.
Fazel Atrachali has not been at his best thus far with 24 tackle points from nine matches. Surinder Singh is their top defender with 25 tackle points and the team will look for an all-round performance on the defensive front with Sandeep Narwal (right corner) and Young Chang Ko (left cover) set to feature in the side for this game.
Will the Tamil Thalaivas culminate their home leg on a positive note? Or will U Mumba climb to the 4th spot with a win?
