Tamil Thalaivas 31-31 Jaipur Pink Panthers

Drama! Sheer drama towards the end of the game and the sides settle for a draw, the twelfth of the season! The Thalaivas have added a fifth tie to their kitty! The Thalaivas made a step-by-step comeback in the second half and a moment of brilliance from Manjeet, which saw him pick 5 points in a single raid, inflicted the all-out on the Pink Panthers and put the Thalaivas in the lead, one which the Pink Panthers were finding hard to erase. However, a couple of Super Tackles in the final minutes of the game have ensured that the Pink Panthers hold the Thalaivas to a tie! 
40' Do-or-die raid for the Thalaivas with six seconds on the clock and Manjeet comes in for it. Goes for a running hand touch on the right corner defender and goes into the lobby.

 A four-point lead for the Pink Panthers going into the second half and it has been a good performance from them so far. After trailing initially, the Pink Panthers started to put pressure on the Thalaivas and assumed the lead. They have inflicted the all out once on the Thalaivas in the first half and will be looking to retain the lead. The raiders have been kept quiet but the Pink Panthers' defence has stepped up. The Thalaivas, on the other hand, will look to make a comeback in the second half. Manjeet and Surjeet Singh will need to be the architects of it while Sagar will be crucial as well. The left side of the defence needs to stop committing unnecessary errors and support the other defenders. An interesting second half beckons us.

Right then, the Tamil Thalaivas have been displaced from the top six and will be eager to make their way back. They are currently placed seventh in the points table with 27 points and a win here will see them displace U.P. Yoddha and occupy the fourth position. Along with U Mumba, the Thalaivas have been a part of as many as 4 ties and will certainly be hoping that they can get over the line in this contest. Their last five matches saw them collect two ties and two wins after which they succumbed to a 9-point defeat against defending champions Bengal Warriors. The Thalaivas will be looking to get back to winning ways against the Pink Panthers tonight. 

The Jaipur Pink Panthers, on the other hand, have five wins to their name from nine encounters and sit fifth in the points table with 28 points. Despite having the same points as U.P. Yoddha, they are placed fifth since they have an inferior Points Table. Nonetheless, the Pink Panthers have done well in the recent past. They are on a three-match winning streak and will be looking to extend it. Arjun Deshwal and Deepak Hooda will once again be doing the bulk of the scoring in the raiding department and will be hoping that the defence comes good as it has in the previous encounters. A win for the Pink Panthers will see them overtake U.P. Yoddha and be placed fourth. An interesting contest awaits us as both sides will be hungry for a victory in this contest.
