PKL 2019, Match 44: Gujarat Fortune Giants vs Jaipur Pink Panthers - Predicting each team's playing 7
Two-time runners-up of VIVO Pro Kabaddi League, Gujarat Fortune Giants will play in front of their home fans one last time this season when they take to the court to play against the Jaipur Pink Panthers.
Surprisingly, the Fortune Giants have lost all of their home matches this year. However, they would look to end their home leg on a high versus Deepak Niwas Hooda's side.
Jaipur Pink Panthers are placed at the 3rd position on the table with 5 victories in 6 matches, while the Gujarat Fortune Giants are on a 5-match losing streak which has seen them slip to 7th spot on the table.
While one team will look to continue its winning momentum, the other will try to snap its winless streak. Given that Gujarat Fortune Giants will be eager to bounce back, this match promises to be a thrilling affair. Here's how the two teams may line up for this encounter -
Gujarat Fortune Giants
Sachin Tanwar will be the team's lead raider and he will have the onus of scoring the raid points for his team. All-rounder Rohit Gulia and tertiary raider Sonu Jaglan will have to support Sachin in the raiding department.
The quartet of Parvesh Bhainswal, Sunil Kumar, Ankit, and Sumit should bring their 'A' game in the defensive unit.
