Tamil Thalaivas return to Chennai after four years as Pro Kabbadi League’s Chennai Leg kick starts tomorrow

Tamil Thalaivas are all set to compete against Patna Pirates as they return to their home ground in Chennai after four years in the ongoing Pro Kabaddi League Season 10. The Chennai leg will start from the 22ndof December till the 27thof December at the SDAT Multipurpose Indoor Stadium. Chennai will witness four matches of the home team against Patna Pirates, Jaipur Pink Panthers, Haryana Steelers and Gujarat Giants respectively.

“While we’ve encountered a couple of losses early in the season, our team is resilient and dedicated. Our players are putting in the hard yards, training diligently, and honing their skills for the challenges ahead, we firmly believe that these setbacks won’t define the immense talent and determination of our squad.” Said Mr. Shushen Vashishth, CEO, Tamil Thalaivas

Semi finalists of the last season, Tamil Thalaivas are looking to build on the momentum and go for top honours this season with the help of their Head Coach, Ashan Kumar. Under his tenure, the team has picked up from exactly where they last played and continue to showcase the level of talent, skill and gameplay that Ashan Kumar is known for.

“We’re here to win, we have a lot of young enthusiastic players and we’re going for the kill during the home leg in Chennai. Returning to our home ground fills us with immense joy and motivation. The energy and support from our fans here is unparalleled, and we’re thrilled to be back amidst such an incredible atmosphere. We’ve trained hard and are ready to give our best. Our team is fueled by the spirit of our home turf, and we aim to make every moment count. We appreciate the continuous support and look forward to showcasing our best game yet.”, said Mr. Ashan Kumar, Head Coach, Tamil Thalaivas

Currently in the 11thplace, Tamil Thalaivas are looking to turn the table on its head and win crucial points from the upcoming matches. The home team advantage will definitely be pivotal in securing these victories as captain Sagar Rathee and the team will be eyeing the top six play off spots. Starting off with a win over Dabang Delhi K.C, Ajinkya Pawar has so far been the star raider for Tamil Thalaivas with a total of 40 points in just 4 matches and he will definitely be key for the team to secure the much-needed wins during the home leg.  The Tamil Thalaivas have had an even tournament so far with two wins and two losses on the board making the next four matches extremely important for the team.

“Returning to our home ground after four years feels like a reunion with a beloved friend. The warmth and energy here are unmatched, and it’s an honor to play in front of our incredible fans. We’ve been putting in the hard yards, gearing up to make this season unforgettable. The wait has been long, but our determination to shine on our home turf is stronger than ever. We’re eager to set the stage on fire and make every moment count. Thank you for your unwavering support – let’s make this homecoming one to remember!” signed off, Sagar Rathee, Captain, Tamil Thalaivas.
