Tamil Thalaivas don't seem to know how to get the best out of Ajay Thakur and Rahul Chaudhari
In Pro Kabaddi 2019, Tamil Thalaivas’ team management has been erring in the use of their star raiders—Rahul Chaudhari and Ajay Thakur Going by recent form, in the last two seasons, Ajay Thakur has clearly been the superior raider to Rahul Chaudhari. In almost every statistical category, Ajay has been better than Rahul, scoring more than 70 raid points more than Rahul despite only playing one extra match than him. Ajay has 19 Super 10s as compared to Rahul’s 12 and he has a raid strike rate greater than 50 against Rahul’s 45.
