Bengaluru Bulls will look to move to the third position in the table with a win as they currently occupy the 5th spot. A victory for Gujarat Fortune Giants will be crucial as they are languishing at 8th position in the standings.
'Hi-Flyer' Pawan Sehrawat has the second highest raid points with 128 raid points thus far while Rohit Kumar announced his return to form with a Super-10 in the recent match against Jaipur Pink Panthers. Banty could also be a handy option in the Do or Die raids.
Rohit Gulia has emerged as the top raider for the Gujarat Fortune Giants with 59 raid points in 11 matches thus far. Sachin Tanwar could also rediscover his mojo after failing to score a Super 10 till the mid-stages. Additionally, GB More could play a vital role as an all-rounder tonight.
Mahender Singh has been the top scorer for the Bulls' defense with 31 tackle points in just nine matches. Saurabh Nandal and Mohit Sehrawat took High 5s against Jaipur Pink Panthers in their recent outing. Additionally, Amit Sheoran will look to improve his numbers from the left corner position.
Gujarat Fortune Giants' skipper Sunil Kumar has 29 tackle points in 11 matches. His cover partner, Parvesh Bhainswal has 26 tackle points to his name. They have not been able to work together this season as a unit which they will look to do tonight. Ruturaj Koravi and Pankaj might get a chance to play at the corners.
Can Bengaluru Bulls start their home leg with a win? Or will Gujarat Fortune Giants remain unbeaten against the home side this season?
