The Gujarat team will go up against Pune tonight on 30th October in a Zone A match. Gujarat, on 2 sequential wins, has all weapons bursting and is in fourth place having played only 4 matches when compared with the 10 matches played by Pune. Pune is on the top spot in the Zone A with Mumbai breathing on their necks and return following a 6 days break after a loss against UP.
Gujarat has the capability in their striking positions and has demonstrated it with some magnificence. Sachin has been steady with his exhibitions and has indicated huge certainty and specialization in his attacks. He has 39 points from 4 matches and has been upheld by Prapanjan with 16 points and Ajay Kumar with 14 points.
The young defensive unit of the Gujarat team has demonstrated a colossal guarantee with Captain Sunil Kumar in the right cover scoring 12 points, Parvesh Bhainswal in the left cover scoring 13 points, Ruturaj in the right corner scoring 12 points and Sachin Vittala has hinted at a bright performance scoring 5 points out of 2 matches. They will hope to proceed with their strong performance versus the Pune raiders driven by Nitin Tomar.
Nitin Tomar will hope to get Pune the victory in this match when he neglected to perform against UP last time out. He has by and by scored 96 points from 10 matches and been the side’s best player. Monu and GB More have bolstered him effectively and been able to score 34 points. The side will expect a conclusive match from the raiders in the upcoming matches.
Girish Ernak has driven this side splendidly yet hasn’t gotten much help from alternate defenders. Girish missed the last match with injury but will be fit enough to play this one. He has scored 32 points from 9 matches, however, has gotten next to zero help from the others. Ravi Kumar has scored 23 points however the others have distressed. The group will expect more from Rinku Narwal and will sit tight for Sandeep Narwal’s arrival from damage.
The two sides will look to get a win and the Gujarat team will hope to benefit from the Pune’s defensive malfunctions and burdens and hope to put more weight on star raider Nitin Tomar. The Pune team will hope to stop Sachin and incapacitate personally the attacking unit of the Gujarat team leaving Nitin Tomar with the responsibility of getting the all-outs.
