Tamil Thalaivas: Season 10 Squad Review – Unveiling the Title Contenders PKL


In the ever-evolving landscape of Pro Kabaddi League (PKL), one team stands poised for greatness – Tamil Thalaivas. After an impressive run in the previous season, where they reached the semi-finals, the Thalaivas are gearing up for PKL Season 10 with a squad that exudes strength and determination. Let’s delve into a comprehensive review of their squad, exploring both their attacking prowess and dominating defense.

Retention Strategy

Aiming for continuity, the Thalaivas adopted a strategic approach by retaining a significant number of players. With 10 players retained, including the prolific Ajinkya Pawar and a blend of young talents like Sagar, Himanshu, and M. Abishek, the squad boasts a mix of experience and raw energy. This retention strategy positions the Thalaivas as a team with a strong foundation, ready to build upon the successes of the past.

Attacking Arsenal

Tamil Thalaivas’ attacking lineup is nothing short of formidable. Narender, the raiding maestro, led the pack with an impressive 243 raid points in Season 9. His consistency will be crucial, supported by the likes of Ajinkya Pawar and Himanshu Singh, who contributed significantly last year. The inclusion of seasoned campaigner Selvamani K adds depth to their attacking prowess, further solidifying their credentials as title contenders.

Abishek and Mohit, a pair that accumulated 40 and 32 tackle points, respectively, in Season 9. For the corner positions, Sagar and Sahil Gulia form a reliable duo, with Sahil emerging as the top scorer in defense with 57 tackle points last year.

Defensive Standouts:

Rising Defensive Stars

The Thalaivas haven’t stopped at retention; they’ve added promising defensive talents to their arsenal. Amirhossein Bastami, a debutant with Haryana Steelers last year, displayed his prowess with 23 tackle points. Himanshu, a versatile player with 32 tackle points and 74 raid points in his Pro Kabaddi career, adds further depth to their defensive lineup.

Coaching Brilliance

A critical factor in Tamil Thalaivas’ resurgence last season was the exceptional coaching of Ashan Kumar, who joined midseason. His impact was profound, guiding the team to a commendable performance. With a full pre-season to work with the squad this time, the expectations are high for Coach Ashan Kumar to extract the best from his players in Season 10.


As the curtains rise on PKL Season 10, Tamil Thalaivas emerge as genuine title contenders. With a well-balanced squad, a potent attacking lineup, and a stalwart defense, they are poised to surpass their previous achievements. The Thalaivas are not just a team; they are a force to be reckoned with in the exhilarating arena of Pro Kabaddi. Brace yourselves for a season of electrifying kabaddi action as Tamil Thalaivas set their sights on the coveted trophy.
