Following the Gujarat Giants’ recent victory against the UP Yoddhas, the focus now shifts to our upcoming clash against the Tamil Thalaivas on their home turf in Chennai. 

Holding a record of four wins in seven games, our team aims to further solidify its position. Despite the Thalaivas sitting at the 11th spot with just two wins in their bag, underestimating them would be a mistake. 

In the previous fixture against the Yoddhas, our team displayed an impressive performance resulting in a well-deserved 38-30 win. Rakesh, the star player, showcased his brilliance by contributing 14 points, well complemented by the contributions of Sombir and Sonu. Fazel Atrachali, with his exceptional defensive skills, bagged 6 crucial tackle points. This victory was a much-needed morale boost for our team after grappling with three consecutive losses.

Tamil Thalaivas, captained by Sagar Rathee, seem to be struggling despite possessing a talented squad. Their determination to turn the tide and secure a win makes them a formidable adversary. Reflecting on our past encounters, we've emerged victorious in 4 out of 8 matches against the Thalaivas, with one match ending in a draw. Last season witnessed them securing one win against us, with another match concluding in a draw.

The upcoming game in Chennai promises to be an engaging battle. Despite their current position in the standings, the Thalaivas will be bolstered by playing on their home turf. It's important for our team to remain focused and perform at our best to secure a favorable outcome in what's anticipated to be a challenging and exciting contest.
