Tamil Thalaivas Team Season 5

The Gujarat Giants had a successful debut season, with the teams being divided into two groups based on geographical location.

The Giants topped Zone A and proceeded directly to the qualifiers, defeating Bengal twice to reach the finals. However, they lost to Patna Pirates in the final by a margin of 38-55.

Tamil Thalaivas Team Season 6

Moving onto Season 6, the Gujarat Giants once again topped Zone A and made it to the playoffs after losing only three out of their 22 group-stage matches.

Unfortunately, they faced a similar fate as their previous season and lost in the Pro Kabaddi League finals to Bengaluru Bulls in a closely contested match.

Parvesh Bhainswal was named the best defender for their side.

Tamil Thalaivas Team Season 7

In contrast, Season 7 was not kind to the Giants as they had a poor run and failed to qualify for playoffs. They ended up finishing ninth with just seven wins under their belt.

Tamil Thalaivas Team Season 8

However, things started looking up again for them in Season 8 as they finished fourth in group stages and qualified for eliminators.

But their hopes of making it further were dashed when they suffered an embarrassing loss against Bengaluru Bulls in the second eliminator.

Tamil Thalaivas Team Season 9

However, Season 9 saw Tamil Thalaivas emerge as a potential contender after a slow start in Vivo Pro Kabaddi.

The injury sustained by their star raider Pawan Sehrawat during the first match contributed to their poor run and performance initially.

But they bounced back and finished as semifinalists thanks to fantastic performances on the mat by their young players who met management's expectations.

Sagar and Ajinkya Pawar played exceptional leadership roles while coach Ashan Kumar revived the team after an early collapse and brought out their best abilities.
