Victory for Tamil Thalaivas will see them leapfrog Telugu Titans into fourth place in Zone B while a sixth consecutive win for Patna Pirates will see them increase their lead over Bengal Warriors, who are closing in on second place in the zone.

Key Players -
Manjeet Chhillar- Tamil Thalaivas
Manjeet Chhillar’s form has been key for Tamil Thalaivas all through their campaign. The veteran is one of only five players with 50 or more tackle points this season and sits fourth on the Best Defender’s list. Chhillar has managed 41 tackle points against Patna Pirates overall and will look for another big performance after returning with a High 5 in his side’s previous game against Telugu Titans.
Jaideep- Patna Pirates
Jaideep has been Patna Pirates’ best defender this year, managing 45 tackle points in 14 games, placing him seventh on the Best Defenders’ list. Jaideep averages two tackle points per game against Tamil Thalaivas and would like to improve his figures as he looks to thwart the threat offered by Tamil Thalaivas’ experienced raiders- Thakur, Jasvir Singh and Surjeet Singh.
