Hello and welcome to the LIVE coverage of the PKL match between Bengaluru Bulls and Gujarat Giants

Vikas Kandola can't live up to the expectations at the moment after Bengaluru went all in for the star raider at the auction. He just has a solitary super 10 to his name and his dip in form has put more pressure on Bharat to deliver in crunch moments.

Bharat Naresh single-handedly destroyed defenses in this tournament so far to bail his team out from unimaginable positions. He has 112 raid points to his name, which is the second best in this season so far. Bharat's will be a big threat to Gujarat defense and if he gets a support from Kandola and Neeraj, then Bengaluru have a very good chance to reign supreme

On the other hand, Gujarat Giants have won just a solitary match in the last four encounters, so they head into this contest as an underdog but you know as there is every slip between the lip and the cup

Rakesh has 80 raid points to his name and his battle with Mahender will be the one to watch out for
