The Gujarat Giants go up against the Patna Pirates in the final match of their home leg on Thursday, December 7, at The Arena by TransStadia in Ahmedabad.
The Giants have made a perfect start to the season, registering a hat-trick of wins, and they'll want to ensure they send their fans home on a high and stay at the top of the table.
The Giants were tested by U Mumba in their last outing, but held their nerve to come out on top 39-37. Once again, super-sub Sonu Jaglan registered a Super 10, and at this point, they might as well put him in the starting lineup.
The Pirates steamrolled the Titans to start their season, and they'll back themselves to take down this resurgent Gujarat side that knows how to overturn deficits. Their defense was on song and Sachin Tanwar was electric in the raiding department, and they'll certainly test Gujarat.

GUJ vs PAT Dream11 Team Prediction Top Picks, Pro Kabaddi 2023, Match 11
Raider - Sachin Tanwar
Sachin hasn't skipped a beat from last season and looked to be in great form against the Titans, picking up 14 raid points, all of them touch points. He's the best raider pick despite competition from Rakesh and Sonu.
Defender - Fazel Atrachali
The Pirates' defenders had a great game against the Titans, and that includes captain Neeraj Kumar and right corner Krishan Dhull. However, the overall quality of raiding they'll face against Gujarat will be higher, and Fazel Atrachali is probably the most reliable defender you can select.
All-Rounder - Ankit
Ankit Jaglan's High 5 makes it an easy call to pick him over Nabibakhsh or Rohit Gulia when it comes to the all-rounders' slot, especially with Nabibakhsh out of action for most of the game against U Mumba.

GUJ vs PAT Expert Tips for Pro Kabaddi 2023
This is a tough game to call because the Pirates have played only one game, and it was against a significantly below-par Telugu Titans. However, they did look very assured and confident, with Sachin Tanwar in sublime form in the raiding department, and the left-corner Ankit doing the same in defense.
If Sonu Jaglan starts for Gujarat, that would solve most of our headaches, but even if he doesn't, he's very likely to make an impact coming off the bench.
Ankit could well be the best all-rounder, given Rohit Gulia's lower propensity to score touch points and Nabibakhsh's benching last match. When it comes to captaincy, Sachin is the safe pick, but Sonu's explosiveness shouldn't be forgotten either.
