Gujarat Giants 21-16 Puneri Paltan

A brilliant comeback from the Giants after they looked pretty clueless in the first five minutes of the contest. A super raid by Ajay Kumar changed fortunes for the previously Fortune Giants as they annihilated the Pune side after that. An all-out was inflicted from which Pune has tried to recover with single point raids but their defense is making far too many errors. The Giants, after the initial passage of play, certainly look to be the better side in this contest, with Rakesh S and Ajay Kumar doing the bulk of the scoring. Will the Giants maintain the lead or will Pune come roaring back? Stick around to find out!
