Tamil Thalaivas (TAM) will take on Jaipur Pink Panthers (JAI) in match 58 of Pro Kabaddi Season 8 at Sheraton Grand Whitefield, Bengaluru on Sunday, January 16. The match will begin at 7:30 PM IST.
TAM vs JAI Dream11 prediction
Jaipur Pink Panthers, who sit fourth on the Pro Kabaddi standings, have beaten top sides Patna Pirates and Dabang Delhi K.C. in two of their last three wins and thus start as favourites against Tamil Thalaivas.
Jaipur have registered the most do-or-die raid points (44) as a team and will be a welcome challenge for Tamil Thalaivas, who have averaged the best successful tackles this term (10.44).
This fixture, which pits JAI’s raid ability against TAM’s robust defense, could be a tight affair but based on momentum, Jaipur Pink Panthers are likely to run out winners.
TAM vs JAI Dream11 team tips for Pro Kabaddi Season 8
Top tip: Best raider
Arjun Deshwal has been the highlight of Jaipur’s raids this season, amassing 109 raid points from 87 raids. With 779 fantasy points so far, Deshwal will be tasked with penetrating the Tamil Thalaivas defence, who have been almost rock-solid this term.
Top tip: Best defender
Surjeet Singh has been one of the mainstays of the TAM defence, with 35 tackle points at a strike rate of 64 per cent. With 693 fantasy points under his belt, the Surjeet will be tasked with blocking successful raid attempts from Jaipur’s Arjun Deshwal, Deepak Hooda and Co.
Top tip: Best all-rounder
Among all-rounders, fantasy players can confidently draft in Deepak Hooda. The JAI star - among the most prolific raiders in PKL history - is averaging 7.3 tackle points in PKL season 8 and he’s expected to get the better of Tamil’s defenders. Available for 14.5 credits, picking Hooda in your fantasy team is an investment worth the price as seen by his performances this term.
TAM vs JAI probable starting lineups
TAM starting 7 (probable): Manjeet Singh, Surjeet Singh, Mohit, Bhavani Rajput, K Prapanjan, Sagar, Sahil Singh
JAI starting 7 (probable): Arjun Deshwal, Amit, Vishal, Deepak Hooda, Naveen, Sahul Kumar, Sandeep Dhull
