Home side Gujarat Fortune Giants will embark on one last mission to break their 5-mark losing streak and to end their win-less home leg and give their home fans something to cheer about as they take on high-flying Jaipur Pink Panthers at the Arena by Transstadia, Ahmedabad at 8:30 PM IST on Friday, 16th August.
Gujarat come off a close 28-26 loss to the Bengal Warriors where they let the game slip in the last raid where a tackle would have won them the game but conceded a point to Prapanjan.
Jaipur meanwhile won 33-25 against the Puneri Paltan, thanks to a good raiding effort from Deepak Niwas Hooda and a balanced defensive showing.
Gujarat Fortune Giants - Team News
The Fortune Giants looked very shaky in defense and the right corner was specifically targeted by the Bengal raiders, and Ankit could make way for Ruturaj Koravi. Sumit, Sunil Kumar's younger brother too looked very fidgety, though he managed to put one good tackle in and is likely to retain his place along with Sunil and Parvesh.
Rohit Gulia had a poor outing but is likely to retain his place due to his previous performances while Sonu Jaglan and Sachin Tanwar got 6 raid points apiece and can continue in the same position.
Predicted Starting 7: Sunil Kumar(C), Parvesh Bhainswal, Sachin Tanwar, Rohit Gulia, Ruturaj Koravi/ Ankit, Sumit and Sonu Jaglan.
Jaipur Pink Panthers- Team News
Jaipur were bolstered by the return of Nitin Rawal who got 4 raid points to his name along with Nilesh Salunkhe who managed 3. The duo did combine well with Deepak Niwas Hooda although Deepak Narwal, who was on the bench, could return to the side replacing Nilesh.
Pavan TR could replace Sunil Siddhgavali who has struggled in the cover combination partnering the impressive Vishal. Sandeep and Amit Hooda in the corners have been excellent and will continue in their positions.
Predicted Starting 7: Deepak Niwas Hooda(C), Deepak Narwal, Vishal, Amit Hooda, Sandeep Kumar Dhull, Pavan TR, and Nitin Rawal.
