Home team Gujarat Fortunegiants will face the challenge of Bengal Warriors. After this match, Jaipur Pink Panthers and UP Yoddha will battle it out to regain their forms.

Team Analysis:

Jaipur Pink Panthers

Jaipur has won only two matches and has lost seven matches. In raiding Deepak Niwas Hooda has performed well for them. Lack of supportive raiders to him is causing back to back defeats for them. Their defense that consists the likes of Mohit Chhillar, Sandeep Dhull, and Bajirao Hodage have not given a performance with full coordination. Sandeep Dhull and Mohit Chhillar both corners have not displayed their collective performance.

UP Yoddha

UP Yoddha will desperately search for a win. They were not successful in winning a single match at their home ground. They also lost against U Mumba in Mumbai leg. So today’s match can get them back their momentum. Raiding trio of Rishank Devadiga, Prashanth Kumar Rai and Shrikant Jadhav have showcased their skills. Nitesh Kumar and Sachin Kumar’s defensive skills have sent many talented and experienced raiders on the bench.
