U.P. Yoddha (UP) will take on Tamil Thalaivas (TAM) in match 33 of Pro Kabaddi Season 8 at Sheraton Grand Whitefield, Bengaluru on Tuesday, January 4. 

UP vs TAM Dream11 prediction

U.P. Yoddha takes on Tamil Thalaivas in a crucial match on Tuesday. Both sides have had an underwhelming season so far with just one win after five matches each. While U.P. Yoddha find themselves at the seventh spot in the standings with 13 points, Tamil Thalaivas are placed two spots above them at fifth courtesy an extra tied game compared to their rivals. A win in this match will help both teams climb up in the points table. 

There is nothing much to separate between the two teams on paper although U.P. Yoddha holds a slender advantage owing to the depth of their squad. 

UP vs TAM Dream11 team tips for Pro Kabaddi Season 8 

Top tip: Best raider

Tamil Thalaivas’ Manjeet will be the top raiding pick for this clash ahead of Pardeep Narwal. The lanky raider has amassed 39 raid points across five games and has scored 10 and 8 points respectively in his last two encounters. Manjeet has been the fulcrum of Tamil Thalaivas’ attack this season and is likely to add plenty of fantasy points to his name in the upcoming clash. Selected by 82 percent of fantasy players, Manjeet is a must-have pick for 16 credits.

Top tip: Best defender

Sumit of U.P. Yoddha is the best choice amongst the defenders. The corner defender currently leads the chart for top defenders this season with 17 tackle points across five matches. With 361 fantasy points already to his name, picking Sumit is a no-brainer for 14 credits. 

Top tip: Best all-rounder 

Amongst the all-rounders, picking Mohit of Tamil Thalaivas will be a good option. Mohit has predominantly played the role of a defender for his side this season with nine tackle points in the first five games. With 123 fantasy points to his name already, it’s easy to see why Mohit has been selected by 62 percent of fantasy players and makes for a good all-round option.

UP starting 7 (probable): Pardeep Narwal, Surender Gill,  Rohit Tomar, Gurdeep, Ashu Singh, Nitesh Kumar (captain), Sumit
