GUJARAT GIANTS won the match
Lineups & Stats
Another high-scoring game involving the Gujarat Giants but the result is different as they pinned the table-toppers down, all thanks to Parteek Dahiya's breathtaking raids. Ram Mehar Singh will be relieved as the Giants also end their agonising 7-match losing streak, while Puneri Paltan remains in the top spot despite a shocking defeat. On that note, it's time to end the coverage as this is Pragadeesh signing off
FT: Puneri Paltan 39-51 Gujarat Giants

Are we dreaming? Pinch yourself to believe it. How many times have we seen Ram Mehar Singh smiling in joy this season? It turned out to be a dream second half for the Giants as Parteek Dahiya bossed the show and kept running away with raid points in every raid. The stand-out Puneri Paltan's defense didn't have any answers to Parteek's raids throughout the match. He did the clean-up act in the 27th minute to help his team stamp the authority in the contest and he wasn't in the mood to show any mercy to the table toppers in the remaining minutes.

After the Giants' defense picked up crucial tackle points, Parteek once again stayed tough and helped his team to inflict the second all-out as the Giants took a massive 12-point lead.

Gujarat's defense had come under huge criticism in the recent matches but they pulled off 14 tackle points, while the man of the moment, Parteek Dahiya picked up 19 points eventually
