Tamil Thalaivas (TAM) will take on Puneri Paltan (PUN) in match 23 of Pro Kabaddi Season 8 at Sheraton Grand Whitefield, Bengaluru on Friday, December 31. 

TAM vs PUN Dream11 prediction

Puneri Paltan face a resilient Tamil Thalaivas in an important game on Friday. Puneri Paltan are currently at the bottom of the standings with a solitary win from three outings. They are desperately in search of a win to resurrect their campaign. Meanwhile, Tamil Thalaivas are yet to win a match this season. With one loss and two ties, they too find themselves in the bottom half of the points table. 

The two sides are evenly matched on paper although Tamil Thalaivas hold a slight advantage owing to the all-round depth of their squad. 

TAM vs PUN Dream11 team tips for Pro Kabaddi Season 8 

Top tip: Best raider

Puneri Paltan’s Mohit Goyat is the best choice for this game. Mohit scored seven raid points in the last match against Patna Pirates and was the lone bright spark in Puneri Paltan’s disappointing loss. The youngster will be tested against a resilient Tamil Thalaivas defence but given his potential, he is expected to repeat his heroics from the last encounter. With 133 fantasy points to his name already, Mohit Goyat will be a good budget pick for 13 credits. 

Top tip: Best defender

Surjeet Singh will be a great pick amongst the defenders for this clash. The Tamil Thalaivas’ captain has scored 10 tackle points across three matches this season and has been a fulcrum of the Thalaivas’ defence. The cover defender has plenty of experience in Pro Kabaddi with over 275 tackle points to his name. Selected by 88 per cent of the fantasy users, Surjeet Singh will be the player to watch out for in this match.  

Top tip: Best all-rounder 

Amongst the all-rounders, picking Aslam Inamdar in the fantasy team is a no-brainer. Inamdar has been a consistent performer this season with five or more points in each of his three outings. With 185 fantasy points to his name already, Aslam Inamdar will be a worthy inclusion for 15.5 credits. 

TAM vs PUN probable starting lineups

TAM starting 7 (probable): K. Prapanjan, Manjeet Dahiya, Ajinkya Pawar, Mohit Jakhar, Surjeet Singh (captain), Sahil Gulia, Sagar Rathee 

PUN starting 7 (probable): Nitin Tomar (captain), Rahul Chaudhari, Pankaj Mohite, Aslam Inamdar, Balasaheb Jadhav, Vishal Bharadwaj, Baldev Singh
