PKL 2022: Tamil Thalaivas’ head coach Ashan Kumar claims his team will play with more drive and vigour

In
their
last
game
of
the
Pune
leg,
Thalaivas
settled
for
a
33-33
tie
against
Patna
Pirates
at
the
Shree
Shiv
Chhatrapati
Sports
Complex
in
Balewadi
on
Wednesday
(November
16).

Speaking
about
his
team’s
performance
against
Pirates,
the
team’s
head
coach
Ashan
Kumar
said,
“It
was
very
important
for
us
to
win
against
Patna
Pirates
and
we
played
well,
but
the
Patna
side
is
also
good.
We
made
a
few
mistakes
in
the
game
and
that’s
why
we
couldn’t
win
the
game.
We’ll
play
with
more
drive
and
vigour
in
Hyderabad.”

Ashan
Kumar
also
summed
up
his
team’s
performance
in
the
Pune
leg,
“We
put
up
a
decent
performance
in
Pune.
We
picked
up
quite
well
and
climbed
up
the
points
table.
We
lost
two
games,
but
we
didn’t
lose
by
a
big
margin.
I
am
happy
with
the
team’s
performance
in
Pune
and
we’ll
play
even
better
in
the
next
leg.”

The
Head
Coach
added
that
the
team
takes
pride
in
making
comebacks
if
they
are
behind
in
the
game,
“The
team
has
been
making
comebacks
in
matches
consistently.
Our
team
is
full
of
youngsters
and
most
of
them
are
playing
their
debut
seasons.
So,
they
gain
confidence
when
they
find
a
way
to
catch
up
with
their
opponents
or
get
close
to
their
opponent’s
score
whenever
they
are
behind
in
the
game.”


Matches
on
Saturday:

The
game
between
U.P.
Yoddhas
and
Jaipur
Pink
Panthers
will
be
a
cracker
of
a
contest
as
both
sides
are
in
stupendous
form.
While
raider
Pardeep
Narwal
will
lead
the
charge
for
the
Yoddhas,
the
Panthers
will
bank
on
their
raider
Arjun
Deshwal.

The
Telugu
Titans
will
be
certainly
hoping
to
strike
form
in
front
of
their
home
fans,
but
U
Mumba’s
raider
Guman
Singh
will
pose
a
stiff
challenge
to
the
Titans.

The
Dabang
Delhi
K.C.
are
desperately
looking
for
a
victory
after
two
consecutive
losses,
but
Patna
Pirates’ raider
Sachin
and
all-rounder
Rohit
Gulia
have
been
in
great
form.

Season

broadcast
live
on
