FULL TIME! Gujarat Giants 51 - 45 U.P. Yoddhas

And that was it! With a total of 96 points scored, we have witnessed a high-scoring encounter of the highest order here in Shree Kanteerava Stadium. The Gujarat Giants, who were trailing by a couple of points at the halfway stage, shifted gears quickly and managed to register an emphatic win tonight. In a different game altogether, Chandran Ranjit was on a different level altogether where he recorded 20 points. Playing second fiddle was Rakesh Sangroya, who continued his tremendous form by registering his fourth Super 10 of the season, and in the defence, Sourav Gulia showed good amounts of promise and picked up 3 tackle points. For the Yoddhas, it was business as usual for Surender Gill and Pardeep, who scalped a Super 10 each. In the end, it was the Gujarat Giants who got their hands on those five precious points, and the Yoddhas had to settle for just a point.

All right, it’s about go time. This contest is surely going to be a belter. Can’t wait! Who will prevail in this clash of two well-matched sides? Let’s find out and away we go! Taking you through all the live action will be me, Saikrishna MD. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the live coverage!
Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda’s coverage of the PKL season 9. We have a couple of really fascinating matches scheduled for the day. The first match of this Wednesday evening will feature a struggling Gujarat Giants side who are placed 10th on the points table and will go up against a rather in-form U.P. Yoddhas are among the top 4 in the early days of this season.

If we take note of the recent form of these two teams, the Giants faced a defeat to the Jaipur Pink Panthers, while the Yoddhas had a great result against the Bengaluru Bulls. The bottom line is simple: Rakesh Sangroya will be looking for assistance from his fellow raiders to bat an eye against formidable opposition. What’s really interesting is that Pardeep ‘the Record Breaker’ Narwal has come back to form and Surender Gill has been on top of his game, leading the team’s attack from last season.
