Sukesh Hegde (6 raid points), Mohammad Nabibakhsh (seven points) and Rinku Narwal (High 5 with 5 tackle points) impressed for the Warriors as they picked up a win to go top of the league points table. Rahul Chaudhari scored 7 points for the Thalaivas as they finished their woeful campaign with another loss. The star-studded Chennai-based team managed only 4 wins the entire season.
Tamil Thalaivas approached the match with confidence, having beaten Jaipur Pink Panthers in their previous outing, and opened a lead in the early minutes thanks to Ajith Kumar and Rahul Chaudhari’s raids.
Rahul moved well on the mat to pick up valuable points but Bengal’s defence got into the game with Nabibakhsh impressing. Soon Bengal were in the lead but Thalaivas regrouped well to stay in the match.
