The home side Haryana Steelers take on the Gujarat Fortune Giants in the second match of a double-header on Sunday, 29th September at the Tau Devilal Sports Complex, Panchkula at 8:30 PM IST as part of Pro Kabaddi 2019.
The Steelers come off a 30-37 loss from their opening home against the U.P. Yoddha and will be gunning a win in front of their home fans while, on the other hand, the Gujarat Fortune Giants thrashed the Tamil Thalaivas 50-21 and could be expected to prove a stiff challenge to the hosts.
When both these sides met earlier this season, Haryana won the game 41-25 and will be looking to draw inspiration from that win to clinch five important points from this clash.
Team News- Haryana Steelers
Haryana weren't able to get enough raid points to keep the scoreboard ticking and a rather dull night for Vikas Kandola translated into a bad game for the Steelers. Vinay did well with 8 raid points to his name. In defence, Ravi Kumar was brilliant with a High 5 to his name on a day that saw Dharmaraj Cheralathan return to captain the side. Haryana are expected to name an unchanged side despite the loss.
Predicted Starting 7: Dharmaraj Cheralathan (C), Vikas Kandola, Prashanth Kumar Rai, Vinay, Vikas Kale, Ravi Kumar, Sunil.
Team News- Gujarat Fortune Giants
Despite the absence of Sachin Tanwar, Gujarat's raiders were brilliant with Rohit Gulia(11) and Sonu Jaglan(15) notching up the raid points for the side. Vinod Kumar did well in a support role. In Sunil Kumar's absence, the defence rallied very well with Parvesh Bhainswal getting a High 5 and Pankaj picking up 4 tackle points in the left corner.
Apart from Sunil Kumar's possible return from injury, Gujarat could be expected to name the same starting seven.
Predicted Starting 7: Sunil Kumar / Amit (C), Parvesh Bhainswal, More GB, Rohit Gulia, Pankaj, Ruturaj Koravi and Sachin Tanwar.
