JAI vs TAM Dream11 : Jaipur look to recover after being stunned by U.P. Yoddha while Tamil Thalaivas continue scrimmaging for their first home win come today
Heading into the fifth leg of the Pro Kabaddi League, for Tamil Thalaivas the narrative was simple. The side were expected to resume semblance to the home fixtures in this edition of the marquee league after Gujarat and Telegu Titans had ended up being hammered in their home legs.
Unfortunately for Tamil Thalaivas though, the side have ended up learning the hard way that this campaign of PKL 7 is one which is just not going to swing the home side’s way. The side ended up losing their home leg opener, suffering a chastening 11 point defeat to Bengaluru Bulls before showing a mini revival against Puneri Paltan.
On course to lose that match as well, the side ended up showing the stomach for a fight as they threw the kitchen sink and more at their opponents in the closing stages. It saw them salvage an unlikely draw from the encounter, a result they’ll be looking to further build on when they square off against the table toppers.
Jaipur Pink Panthers meanwhile themselves enter the fray of this clash after being silenced by U.P. Yoddha in a result which stunned not only them but the entire land of PKL. In what was a harrowing performance by their defence, the backline completely unravelled to see the side be put down by one of the most underperforming sides of this season, a defeat they’ll be vociferously looking to comeback from.

JAI vs TAM Dream 11 Picks
Defenders for JAI vs TAM Dream11
With corners Sandeep Kumar Dhull and Amit Hooda registering just one point in between them in the previous encounter, Jaipur Pink Panthers were always going to suffer against U.P. Yoddha. However left corner Sandeep has registered 31 tackle points in the league till now with the corner positions being of pivotal importance to the side’s consummate success.
We have picked him up from the side while from the opposition we have gone ahead with Mohit Chillar. U.P. Yoddha exposed a glaring weakness in Jaipur’s raiding facet, one which saw them persistently target Deepak Niwas Hooda to keep him out of the encounter for a majority of the clash.
Tamil Thalaivas will be looking to do the same today and with 21 points till now, Mohit along with Ran Singh will be asked to target Jaipur’s most successful raider.
All-Rounders for JAI vs TAM Dream11
While we are on the script of keeping Deepak out of the game, he managed to deliver 8 points in the raiding facet for his in the previous encounter despite being targeted persistently. He has picked up 64 points in 8 clashes for the side as a raider, emerging as their highest points amasser in the attacking side of things and enters our side for this fixture.
We have also picked out defender Vinay from the side after he delivered an extremely alluring show against Yoddha in the last clash. At a time when the rest of his counterparts fell apart, the all-rounder managed to deliver four tackle points to keep his side in the encounter across the 40 minutes.
Raiders for JAI vs TAM Dream11
One reason which Jaipur will need to address ahead of their future sojourns is the lack of a consistent second raider, something which could peg them back in their quest of making strides in the ranks. Deepak Narwal has managed to score only 27 points for his side with inconsistency pushing him back from becoming a successful raider for his side.
We still pick him up though, majorly due to the identity of the opposition’s defence while fro Tamil Thalaivas we have Rahul Chaudhari come into our side after picking up 52 raid points this season. At just 12 credits, V Ajith Kumar comes in as well from the side with the raider having taken 16 points ever since being given a chance in recent times for his side with Ajay crumbling this season.
Captain And Vice-Captain for JAI vs TAM Dream11
