A chance to move up to third in the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) Season 7 points tally awaits Haryana Steelers (fifth, 31 points) ahead of their match against Gujarat Fortunegiants (eighth, 25 points). This match #62 will be played at the Thyagaraj Sports Complex in Delhi on Wednesday.
Both sides have played ten matches each and the Fortunegiants also have the incentive of climbing into the top-six with a win. The H2H between these sides is 3-2 in favour of the Steelers with one tie. As the season moves towards the deciding phase, both sides will be targeting a win.
Gujarat Fortunegiants Preview
The Fortunegiants stopped their six-match losing streak with a win over Patna Pirates. They are the two-time defending runners-up, but are struggling this season. They have already lost six times, but the Fortunegiants can step up with a win.
It is the defence that is leading the show for Gujarat. With an average of 10.5 tackle points, the Fortunegiants have excelled. However, the raiding hasn’t been up to the mark. So, if you are looking for fantasy tips, keep a close eye on the Fortunegiants’ defenders.
Haryana Steelers Preview
A win over high-flying Bengal Warriors has given the Steelers new wings. With the raiding unit led by the fabulous Vikash Khandola, there is no stopping Haryana. In the defence, ever-green Dharmaraj Cheralathan is showing the way.
However, defence still remains an area of concern. Like against Bengal where they scored just eight tackle points. In fact, the Steelers average a paltry 9.3 tackle points this season. For your fantasy team selections, keep an eye on the proven names.
Fantasy Players to Watch
Sunil Kumar has been in good form for the Fortunegiants. Together with Parvesh, Sunil has looked daunting. He has 28 tackle points from ten games and looks good for more.
Vikash Khandola has 69 points from just seven matches this season. That includes four Super 10s. Another strong name for your fantasy side.
Dharmaraj Cheralathan has 22 tackle points in ten matches so far. His experience in handling tough situations makes him an ideal fantasy pick.
