Gujarat will play with Delhi at the Shaheed Vijay Singh Pathik Sports Complex in Greater Noida tonight i.e. 4th November.
The Gujarat team has been on a 4 match winning streak to a great extent because of the superlative performance of their imposing defense. They have the second most commendable normal tackle points (11.83 tackles for each match) in the opposition with predictable commitments from their star cover pair of Sunil Kumar and Parvesh Bhainswal. Ruturaj Koravi (19 points) has made himself a vital need in defense with his consistency in adding to the group’s score. The attack of the Gujarat team, in spite of the fact that it has not been as productive as Bengaluru’s squad or Mumbai’s brigade, have still managed to be in great politeness due to their star raiders – Sachin, K. Prapanjan, and Mahendra Rajput.
Delhi, yet again, is coming back after sequential losses. Their ongoing loss to the Pune team was because of a not up to the mark performance by their striking unit. The young, Naveen Kumar, was the main splendid performer with his 7 points, while the remaining raiders disgusted in contributing much.
The defense of Delhi, in spite of the fact that it started moderately in the opposition, has been predictable in the ongoing matches. The ‘Bird of prey’ Ravinder Pahal (18 points) and the ‘Takedown Tiger’ Joginder Narwal (17 points) have been their best performers.
The last time the groups confronted each other was in Match 5 of this season, where the result was a tie (32-32).
Tentative 7 players aligned for each team
Delhi Team: (Captain) Joginder Narwal, Vishal Mane, Rajesh Narwal, Ravinder Pahal, Meraj Sheykh, Chandran Ranjit, Naveen Kumar
Gujarat Team: (Captain) Sunil Kumar, Sachin, Rohit Gulia, Sachin Vittala, K. Prapanjan/Shubham Palkar, Parvesh Bhainswal, Ruturaj Koravi
Sachin Tanwar, Naveen Kumar and Chandran Ranjit
Sachin Tanwar has been the top raider for the Gujarat team and he has been constantly scoring well and thus has become one of the primary reasons for their wins. Naveen and Chandran from Delhi have maintained a good form despite of their team’s inconsistent performance.
Joginder Narwal, Sachin Vittala and Ruturaj Koravi
The two corner defenders of Gujarat Ruturaj and Sachin are both equipped to acquire good tackle points for the team. Narwal has always been a threat from the left corner with his tough ankle holds and would be expected to show the same.
The Gujarat chief, Sunil Kumar is in splendid performance with 8 tackle points in his last face off with Jaipur. He will be hoped to bring the same spark in tonight’s match too.
Match Prediction – Delhi K.C. vs Gujarat.
Our bet is on Gujarat for winning tonight’s match.
