Team Analysis:

Gujarat Fortunegiants

Yesterday Dabang Delhi shocked the Fortunegiants and handed them the first loss at their home leg in the history of PKL. Sachin had a good match but he was not supported by other raiders. In defense Parvesh Bhainswal and Sunil Kumar were successful. But their corners Sachin Vitthala and Ruturaj Koravi did not contribute anything which proved Gujarat costly. But the fans will be hoping for them to play today with the same coordination.

U Mumba

U Mumba will be on the mat after a successful home leg. Siddharth Desai, Rohit Baliyan and Abhishek Singh’s raiding trio is in a good form and have the ability to destroy any defense. Skipper Fazel is the top defender of this season. Surender Singh, Dharmaraj Cheralathan and Vinod Kumar have also shown their skills.
