Gujarat Fortune Giants will be looking for a win after two consecutive losses against U Mumba and Puneri Paltan. A win for Tamil Thalaivas will boost their ranking to the second/third spot in the points table.
Rohit Gulia is the top raider for Gujarat Fortune Giants with 28 raid points in five matches. Sachin Tanwar has not been in his best form yet as he has not scored a single Super10 till now. Coach Manpreet Singh will be banking upon his lead raider Sachin to score big against the immensely experienced defense of Thalaivas.
'Showman' Rahul Chaudhari has been a sensation for Thalaivas' offense so far with 39 raid points in five games. He has not received support from his captain Ajay Thakur in the offense as the team has seen ups and downs in their current form. With Shabeer Bappu's current form, Tamil Thalaivas do have an upper hand in the raiding department over Gujarat heading into the contest.
Gujarat's wall of defense, Parvesh Bhainswal has been scoring tackle points at par for the team as he has 13 tackle points in five matches. All-rounder GB More has contributed to the defense as well along with captain Sunil Kumar. However, it will be a test for the coach to innovate the team's performance in the defensive department.
The corner defense with Sumit and Ankit/Ruturaj Koravi will get expected to prove their worth for the upcoming games in their home leg.
Manjeet Chhillar has been a top-class defender with 22 tackle points in five games. The team will bank upon the experience of Mohit Chhillar and Ran Singh as they'll get expected to do well for the team.
Will Gujarat Fortune Giants start their home leg with a win? Or will Tamil Thalaivas pave their way to the upper tier in the points table?
