Quick facts and stats - Tamil Thalaivas
After its poor 2017 season, the Tamil Thalaivas team did not have the debut they dreamed of. But things can be very different in 2018 due to some important changes within the team. With Ajay Thakur leading the Tamil Thalaivas 2018 team, the side hopes to take on the challenge with a renewed spirit.
- Captain Ajay Thakur finished the first season of PKL as the fourth most successful raider when he played for the Bengaluru Bulls. Since then, he has been as one of the most consistent raiders in PKL.
- Jasvir Singh is a raiding wizard and his exceptional skills have brought him success at the PKL as well as at international tournaments. His five seasons with the Jaipur Pink Panthers helped boost the team’s performance and this experience will be a great boon for the team Thalaivas.
- Defender Amit Hooda is an ace of the ankle hold move. His accolades include being part of the title-winning Patna Pirates Team of season three. He was also the most successful defender for the Jaipur Pink Panthers in season 4 and Tamil Thalaivas in season five.
- A man of many accolades including the Arjuna award, Manjeet Chhillar is also known as the ‘One Man Army’ for his versatile all-rounder skills. His blocking skills are second to none and he is arguably one of the best defenders of PKL.
- Manjeet Chhillar also has the most number of overall tackle points in the PKL and finished season two as PKL’s Most Valuable Player for his astounding overall performance.
- Raider Sukesh Hegde is a PKL veteran with consistent performances across seasons. This consistency bestowed on him the honour of leading the Gujarat Fortunegiants squad of season five. With the master of do-or-die raids joining team Tamil, his signature ‘Running Hand Touch’ move is a thrill to watch in Tamil Thalaivas matches.
- Promising young talents Athul MS and Vimal Raj V have displayed epic moments of skilful brilliance with their energetic dashes and tactful defences. This makes them someone to watch out in future matches featuring team Thalaivas.
Overall, the 2018 PKL squad of the Tamil Thalaivas is a smart mix of veterans and budding talents. This blend is sure to reflect on the team’s performance and fans can look forward to an exceptional season for the team.
