Tamil Thalaivas made their debut in Pro Kabaddi League last season and failed to book a playoff spot. The side picked Ajay Thakur as their priority pick and appointed the raider as the captain of the team. But due to inexperience in the squad, they finished in the last position in Zone B. This season, the former U Mumba coach, E Bhaskaran is going to replace K Bhaskaran as the head coach, and the side has picked up a more
competitive squad than the previous one, with All-Rounder Manjeet Chillar, Raiders Jasvir Singh and Sukesh Hegde and defender Sunil joining the team.
