Winning will get tickets for playoffs
For Gujarat Giants, HS Rakesh, Girish Maruti Ernak and Mahender Rajput have done well in the last few matches. Ajay Kumar and Pardeep Kumar played an important role in getting the team on the winning track. With Parvesh Bhainswal, the hold of Sunil Kumar has also become stronger. Feeding Hadi Oshtorak in the starting 7 can be beneficial for the team. Giants’ defense will have to stop Pawan Sehrawat in the first half.
Bulls Depend on Wind
On the other hand, the biggest concern of the Bulls is that the entire raiding department of the team is dependent on Pawan Sehrawat. Bharat and Chandran Ranjeet have scored points for the team in some matches, despite this the team looks very weak without Pawan. Sorabh Nandal and Aman are seen in good rhythm in the defence. If Mahendra Singh and Mayur Kadam don’t make mistakes, the Bulls can go on the mat against Delhi.
what do the figures say
