Bengal Warriors (BEN) will take on Tamil Thalaivas (TAM) in match 51 of Pro Kabaddi Season 8 at Sheraton Grand Whitefield, Bengaluru on Wednesday, January 13. The match will begin from 7:30 PM IST.

BEN vs TAM Dream11 prediction

Bengal Warriors clash against an in-form Tamil Thalaivas side on Thursday. The defending champions have had an underwhelming season so far with three wins and five losses from eight matches. They head into this fixture on the back of two successive losses and desperately need a win to resurrect their campaign. 

Meanwhile, Tamil Thalaivas are on a six-match unbeaten streak with three wins and four ties from eight matches so far. A win on Thursday will help them consolidate their position in the top four. 

Based on current form, Tamil Thalaivas are strong favourites to win this match although Bengal Warriors can emerge victorious provided their defensive unit fires. 

BEN vs TAM Dream11 team tips for Pro Kabaddi Season 8 

Top tip: Best raider

Picking Bengal Warriors’ Maninder Singh as your raider is a no-brainer for this contest. The Bengal Warriors captain has scored 99 raid points across eight matches, including as many as six super 10s this season. With 665 fantasy points already to his name, Maninder Singh is a must-have pick despite his high price of 16.5 credits. 

Top tip: Best defender

Surjeet Singh is the best choice amongst defenders for this encounter. The Tamil Thalaivas’ captain is currently amongst the best defender in the tournament with 30 tackle points after eight outings. Surjeet scored eight tackle points in his last game against Haryana Steelers and given his form, he’s too good a player to be ignored for 15 credits. 

Top tip: Best all-rounder

Amongst all-rounders, Iranian Mohammad Esmaeil Nabibakhsh of Bengal Warriors will be the best option for this clash. Nabibakhsh has accumulated 49 points in total after seven matches, including 13 tackle points. With 367 fantasy points already, Mohammad Esmaeil Nabibakhsh is a worthy choice for 15.5 credits. 

BEN vs TAM probable starting lineups

BEN starting 7 (probable): Maninder Singh (captain), Darshan J., Amit Narwal, Rohit, Mohammad Nabibakhsh, Abozar Mohajermighani, Sachin Vittala

TAM starting 7 (probable): Manjeet, Bhavani Rajput, K. Prapanjan, Surjeet Singh (captain), Sagar Krishna, Mohit, Sagar
