Having slumped to a defeat in its previous game against Gujarat Fortunegiants in Pro Kabaddi, Tamil Thalaivas came back strongly with a win over UP Yoddha at the Shaheed Vijay Singh Pathik Sports Complex in Greater Noida.
Team captain Ajay Thakur was pleased with the comprehensive victory, in which the side ticked all boxes. Thalaivas also created a new record, amassing 19 tackle points, highest in a single match in Pro Kabaddi history. “The defenders performed brilliantly. Manjeet had a great match. It is good to see him coming back into form. Amit Hooda, with his second ‘High 5’ of the season, was brilliant. We have been a little restless defensively in our earlier games but today (Friday), it was perfect. It was a complete team performance and you will see more of this from now,” remarked Ajay. While Ajay has been the Chennai-based franchise’s lead raider, Sukesh and Jasvir Singh are slowly starting to unleash their best.
