Season 9 has reached a stage where the top teams are clearly visible. Bengaluru Bulls have been consistent while the Gujarat Fortune Giants have not been so fortunate. The Giants find themselves in an uncomfortable position and they are now fighting for survival.
The Bulls have gone from strength to strength with dominant performances and with the help of sheer team effort. Raider Bharat Hooda has executed 131 successful raids. Along with Vikash Kandola and Neeraj Narwal, Bharat has been flying low below the radar hunting opposition defenders regularly.
The Gujarat Fortune Giants have lost their self-belief. They seem to be going nowhere every time they enter the arena. This will be a tough game for the Fortune Giants as this will be the last chance for them to even dream of making it to the playoff. The Bulls are in a rampaging mood and the Gujarat Fortune Giants do not have much fire power left to avoid the stampede.
The Gujarat Fortune Giants never fired this season. They were slow to start, picked up a bit of pace but then got caught in the web of uncertainty which took them down the spiral.
They are currently placed 11th in the points table just above the Telegu Titans. They have been able to win just 5 games but these came very early in the season. Interestingly the Fortune Giants beat the Bengaluru Bulls in their encounter last week.
This was a high-scoring game where the Fortune Giants kept their cool to tactically exploit the last raid and won the match by 2 points. All-rounder Prateek Dahiya emerged as the hero in that match for the Fortune Giants. But a freak injury to him affected Gujarat a lot and they are back to square one.
Post that victory the Fortune Giants were thrashed by the Bengal Warriors followed by a painful 1-point loss to the Haryana Steelers. The Gujarat Giants are a perfect example of blow hot blow cold. They play like champions in a match followed by a dismal performance in the next one.
The Fortune Giants have conducted 230 successful team raids but just 98 successful team tackles which is the lowest among all the teams.
Their tackle success rate is just about 32%. They have not been able to guard their fortress and lose points at will.
The Fortune Giants have conceded 487 team points while earning just 454 via raids.
They have inflicted 18 all-outs while conceding 17.
They are sitting ducks when they compete against stronger teams. They will have to motivate themselves with the thought that they beat the Bulls last time and just hope to repeat that performance in Hyderabad.
The Bulls have been in rampaging mode since the beginning of the season. They took a couple of games to get into the groove but then they have been unstoppable. They are tactically strong and depend on teamwork. They did lose a couple of games earlier in the month but came back strongly with a hat-trick of wins. They have beaten the Haryana Steelers, Tamil Thalaiva, and the Telegu Titans.
Raider Bharat Hooda has emerged as their main raider. He has amassed 159 raid points from 131 successful raids. He has scored the most successful raids this season. Raider Neeraj Narwal has also emerged from the shadows of Vikash Kandola to take charge. Neeraj and Bharat both scored a Super 10 in their last game against the Titans.
The Bengaluru Bulls have also been blessed by a lethal defense led by Saurabh Nandal. He has conducted 45 successful tackles in 14 games. He has been ably supported by Aman and left cover Mahender Singh.
As a team, the Bulls have conducted 256 successful raids out of their total 587 team raids.
They have earned 543 team points which is the highest among all teams.
Though they have conceded 499 team points, the Bulls are generally in command of the situation. With 9 Super raids in 14 games, the Bulls are a force to reckon with. They have inflicted 27 all-outs on their opponents making them a very dangerous team to deal with.
The Bulls lost to the Gujarat Fortune Giants the last time they met. It was a tactical blunder that took the game away from them. They will look forward to getting their revenge as the Fortune Giants are not in great shape. This will help bolster their top position in the points table.
Bengaluru Bulls have to make sure that the Gujarat Fortune Giants do not catch them napping. Whenever the Bulls have lost it has been due to a temporary breakdown in their defense. This does not happen often but after all, it happens to the best once in a while.
The Gujarat Fortune Giants have their backs to the wall as they confront the Bulls at a new location, the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium, Hyderabad. They are running out of time as well as steam. This will be their last chance to make a miraculous comeback of sorts.
Gujarat will be looking forward to seeing Prateek Dahiya play this game. In that case, the Bulls will have a tough time. But raiders Rakesh and Chandran Ranjit will earn well but not enough. Defenders Arkam Shaikh and Kapil have to regulate their anxiety and not give away easy points. Raider Pardeep Kumar needs more time on the mat.
The Bulls will look forward to avenging their earlier defeat to the Gujarat Fortune Giants. Raiders Bharat and Neeraj Narwal will give them a good lead by halftime. Defenders Saurabh and Mahender will hunt down the Gujarat raiders. The second half of the match will be more explosive as the Bulls will win this match with ease.
Bengaluru Bulls will win.
