Toss won by Tamil Thalaivas - Bengaluru Bulls to raid first. 
Both the teams are out in the middle!
However, Gujarat Fortune Giants, who had lost just 1 home match prior to their home leg, could not manage a single win at Ahmedabad this year. So, does this mean the Tamil Thalaivas who have won only 1 home game, do not manage to lose a single match at Chennai? Only time will tell. 
Also, Tamil Thalaivas have won only 1 home match in PKL history which indicates their poor record at Chennai. 
Speaking of the individual battles to look out for, Pawan Sehrawat has a 5-2 head-to-head record versus Tamil Thalaivas' lead defender, Manjeet Chhillar
In case the 7th placed Tamil Thalaivas win tonight, they can reach as high as the 3rd position. So, the stakes for this match are really very high!
Bengaluru Bulls are currently at the 5th position on the points table with 22 points in 7 matches. A win against the Tamil Thalaivas will propel them to the 2nd position. 
The starting sevens of both the teams are out - 
TAMIL THALAIVAS - Ajay Thakur (C), Ajeet, Manjeet Chhillar, Rahul Chaudhari, Ran Singh, Mohit Chhillar and Shabeer Bappu. 
BENGALURU BULLS - Rohit Kumar (C), Vijay Kumar, Ajay, Pawan Sehrawat, Ankit, Saurabh Nandal and Amit Sheoran.
