U.P. Yoddhas have two wins and three losses to their name and are sitting in eighth position in the standings. Surender Gill has been an important cog in the wheel for the Yoddhas and has scored 61 raid points. He has been supported by Pardeep Narwal who has amassed 50 raid points so far. These star raiders have done the bulk of the scoring for the Yoddhas in the raiding department and would welcome more help in attack from their teammates. In defence, Ashu Singh has been their top defender with 14 tackle points, while the defensive duo of Sumit and Nitesh Kumar have contributed 10 tackle points each for the Yoddhas.

Meanwhile, Tamil Thalaivas have one win, three losses and a tie after their first five games and are in 10th position on the points table. Narender has gone about his business very quietly for the Thalaivas and has scored 46 raid points, making him the team’s top raider. He’s been supported by Himanshu Singh, who has looked good in phases and has notched up 19 raid points so far. Both Narender and Himanshu Singh will need to be at their best if Tamil Thalaivas are to beat U.P. Yoddhas. As far as their defence goes, Sagar has led the Thalaivas from the front and has accumulated 12 tackle points thus far. The likes of Sahil Gulia and M. Abishek have also chipped in defensively with 11 and seven tackle points respectively.
