In Qualifier 2 of PKL 2018, Gujarat will go up against the UP at the NSCI Dome at SVP Stadium in Mumbai tonight at 8 PM.
The Gujarat squad lost their first opportunity to make it to the finals with a 29-41 thrashing to the Bengaluru in last night’s match. They were fixed by their poor defense, which generally had been the feature of their battle this season.
Their defense was ambivalent and spilled guides frequently toward close the entryway on their success. Their captain, Sunil Kumar, and best defender Parvesh Bhainswal, who had been the foundation of their protection, disintegrated under strain on the night and could oversee only a solitary point between themselves, as the Gujarat team wound up with only 6 tackle points.
Their raiding unit had a greatly improved trip and mentor, Manpreet Singh would seek after them to proceed in a similar vein on Thursday. Sachin was the best scorer with 10 points.
UP, yet again, are on an eight-coordinate unbeaten streak and would plan to make it nine with a success against Gujarat.
They have had a fantasy kept running since their success against the Haryana in Match 98 of the opposition, which kick-began a resurgence of sorts and has driven them to Qualifier 2, only one stage far from making it to the finals.
They have developed in certainty with each success, and their ongoing triumph against Delhi is a prime case of how much development the group has appeared. Once intensely scrutinized for their poor resistance and their conflicting striking, Yoddha scored 26 raid points and 10 tackles indicate on the night demonstrate a point to their depreciators.
Prashanth Kumar Rai was in extraordinary shape and his fruitful attacks at urgent crossroads of the experience made ready for his group to put the performance to bed.
Tentative 7 players aligned for each team
Gujarat Team: (Captain) Sunil Kumar, Sachin Tanwar, Rohit Gulia, Ruturaj Koravi, Hadi Oshtorak, Parvesh Bhainswal, K. Prapanjan
UP Team: (Captain) Rishank Devadiga, Shrikant Jadhav, Narender, Sachin Kumar, Nitesh Kumar, Jeeva Kumar, Prashanth Kumar Rai
Sachin Tanwar and Prashant Kumar Rai
Sachin Tanwar from Gujarat has performed as a strong raider for Gujarat’s side with Super 10s to his credit consecutively in many matches. Prashant Kumar has made an outstanding comeback from his injuries and has been the key raider for the UP.
Ruturaj Koravi, Parvesh Bhainswal, and Nitesh Kumar
Nitesh has been undoubtedly the best right-side defender this season for UP. Parvesh and Koravi have been the best defenders for the Gujarat side, scoring enormously in the cover position all throughout this season.
Rohit Gulia is the best all-rounder leading his side to victory. He is both are skillful raider and defender.
