After beating Dabang Delhi convincingly in the 50th match of the season, the Bengaluru Bulls went on the wrong track as they lost to the Patna Pirates and then to the Bengal Warriors. They were extremely unlucky in that game as some of the decisions from the umpires were uncalled for. They are 2nd in the points table and they would be looking at earning valuable points by beating the reckless Fortune Giants.

The Fortune Giants made a sort of comeback by earlier beating the Telegu Titans and then they beat the Tamil Thalaiva by just 1 point. They were lucky to get some decisions in their favor from the umpires.

But the Fortune Giants will have a tough time taming the Bulls. The Bulls beat them by 9 points in their last meeting. Tackling Pawan Sehrawat will be their biggest challenge. The Fortune Giants have at last realized that they need to adapt to situations and they played some fast-paced kabaddi against the Tamil Thalaiva’s. They will have to repeat this performance against the Bulls who are looking a bit vulnerable after losing their last 2 games.

Gujarat Giants Preview

If any team has disappointed their fans, it has been the Gujarat Fortune Giants. Known for their fearless and constricting style of kabaddi in earlier seasons, they have not settled into any sort of rhythm this time. They are placed 10th in the points table after 11 games with just 28 points. 

The main reason for this debacle has been their rigidity in applying their strategy. They are known to slow down the game, frustrate the opponents and play low-scoring matches. But this time, the other teams have been proactive and they have frustrated the Fortune Giants. 

The Fortune Giants have also been guilty of silly mistakes like their players going out of bound regularly. The defense has been scratchy and the emotions have been high.

They have won just 3 games while sharing the honors in 3 more games.

Their raiding has been decent with Rakesh and Rakesh Narwal performing consistently. While Rakesh Narwal has earned 60 raid points in 10 games, Rakesh is in the top 10 raiders list with 84 raid points from 11 games.

Defender Parvesh Bhaiswal has the highest Super tackles of the season.

The Fortune Giants have conceded 12 all-outs this season and have inflicted only 9 which is the lowest among all the teams. They have not been able to correct this issue since the last few games.

They will have a tough time against the Bulls who look in ominous form. The Fortune Giants do not have the firepower to isolate Pawan Sehrawat, but if they can trap him somehow, they may manage to tame the BULLS.

Bengaluru Bulls Preview

The last few games have been forgetful for the Bulls especially the last game where they lost to the Bengal Warriors by just a point. They were leading in the second half when the umpires came up with an unacceptable all-out call which gave the advantage to the Warriors who eventually won the game.

The Bulls will try and reconnect with their performance against Dabang Delhi when they beat them by a huge margin. The Bulls are placed second in the points table with 40 points after 12 games.

Pawan Sehrawat is in the top gear and leads the list of raiders this season. 

He has earned 164 raid points from 134 successful raids. 

Bengaluru Bulls have the best strike rate when it comes to successful team raids- 225/486 raids.

They also top the list with the best figures for successful team raids.

Pawan Sehrawat has been caught napping in a few matches by the opposition but he has come back stronger every time he is pinched. The only way that any team can beat the Bulls is to keep Pawan off the mat as long as possible.

The Bulls have used Chandran Ranjith and Bharat as their backup raiders and it has worked for them. They have also used the strategy of infusing more defenders during certain phases of the game.

Defenders Mahendra and Sourabh Nandal have been hunting successfully. Sourabh has 36 tackle points from 12 games.

The Bulls would like to make quick work of the Fortune Giants and earn valuable points.

In their last meeting, the Fortune Giants were not able to tame the Bulls as Pawan Sehrawat went on a rampage earning 19 points.

Though the Fortune Giants are learning serious lessons, it has come a bit too late. But better late than never. Raiders Rakesh and Rakesh Narwal lead the pack for the Fortune Giants, but it is their defense that needs to be more lethal and consistent. Left Corner Girish Ernak has been a bit inconsistent, but when on a song he is unbeatable. Parvesh and Sunil have done well in the last few games. The Fortune Giants will need all the luck to beat the Bulls.

Pawan Sehrawat is like a Superhit movie, he has adapted well to situations and has been reading the opposition much better. Taming him will be a task in itself. The Bull's guardians have been consistent too with lethal tackles at important junctures of the game.

The Bulls will not be forced to sweat a lot, but they cannot forget that they have lost their last 2 games. This will be an exciting and high-scoring game.

Bengaluru Bulls will win.
