Team News - Tamil Thalaivas
Ajith Kumar has been the find of the season and the lone bright spark in a rather dismal campaign for the Thalaivas. He scored 16 raid points in the previous game but received little support from Rahul Chaudhari and Hemanth Chauhan. The defence did okay with M Abhishek continuing his good run while Ran Singh too chipped in with 2 tackle points. Ajeet could come in place of Ponparthiban but being the last game, they're unlikely to make any other change.
Predicted Starting 7: Ran Singh(C), Rahul Chaudhari, V Ajith Kumar, Sagar, Ponparthiban/ Ajeet, Hemant Chauhan and M Abishek.
Team News - Jaipur Pink Panthers
Jaipur found it pretty easy to win despite the absence of Deepak Niwas Hooda who's unlikely to return for this game. Deepak Narwal did a fine job in the raiding department and so did Nilesh Salunkhe. Sandeep Dhull has had a brilliant season in defence and he was well supported by Vishal who got a High Five to his name. Nitin Rawal blanked and young Guman Singh might be given a go.
Predicted Starting 7: Sandeep Kumar Dhull (C), Deepak Narwal, Vishal, Amit Hooda, Nilesh Salunkhe, Guman Singh/ Nitin Rawal and Pavan TR.
