Four new teams will feature in this year’s Vivo Pro Kabaddi League and Tamil Thalaivas will be one of them. Owned by the god of cricket Sachin Tendulkar, the team is already having a huge fan following even before showing their skills on the mat.
After Badminton and Football, Sachin Tendulkar is now a proud owner of a Kabaddi team. The Chennai-based franchise is all set to make their debut in the fifth season of Vivo Pro Kabaddi League 2017.
The main strength of the side is their raider Ajay Thakur, who is fresh from a successful world cup campaign in which India went on to win the final.
The only worrying sign for the Chennai-based side is the over-reliance on Ajay Thakur and an untested lot of the local talent that is there in the Tamil Thalaivas.
