PKL Season 6: Tamil Thalaivas will look for the right combination against Bengaluru Bulls tonight
Pro Kabaddi League Season 6 leg two will wrap up today. Kabaddi fans got to see some close and thrilling encounters in the Sonepat leg. Today also there will be two matches. In the first one Bengaluru Bulls will be up against the Tamil Thalaivas in Southern Derby. After this match home team Haryana Steelers will take on U Mumba.
When last time these two teams faced each other Bulls won the match by 11 points. Pawan Kumar Sehrawat and Kashiling Adake gave brilliant performances in the raiding. As well as their defensive show was also great. But they failed to stop Tamil Thalaivas skipper Ajay Thakur who scored 19 raid points and 1 tackle point in that match.
Tamil Thalaivas have won only one match in their home leg and have lost 4 consecutive matches. In raiding, Ajay Thakur and Athul MS are in the form. But their defense is leaking points which is the main reason they are loosing matches. Manjeet Chhillar and Amit Hooda are not upto the mark. Whereas cover defenders are completely out of form. It seems that their combination is not working for them.
