As both teams travel to Delhi to play an important match, Haryana Steelers and Gujarat Giants are working on confirming their spot in the next round. Though the Gujarat Giants have lost a bit of steam, they are a formidable unit. Gujarat has lost 3 out of its last 5 matches. The issue with the Giants is that the matches they have lost are by huge margins. Whenever they have lost, their earnings have been very low. They could score just 20 points in their last match against the Pirates. 

The Haryana Steelers have worked overtime as they have won 3 out of their last 5 matches. They had a tough time beating the Bengal Warriors in their last match. It was a raid fest as Shivam Patare and Siddharth Jadhav scored a Super 10 each. Haryana Steelers are placed 5th in the points table and they have the Gujarat Giants up their tail. Both teams need to win this match so as to remain in the top 5. This will be a contest for survival and a ticket to the next round.

Gujarat Giants Preview

Gujarat Giants were placed 2nd in the points table a few weeks back. But a few ordinary performances have pushed them down to the 6th spot after they have played 16 matches. They started with a hat-trick of victories which was a dream start for them in season 10. Unfortunately they lost the next 2 games, as if they suddenly came across speed breakers on the highway. They have lost 3 out of their last 5 matches. 

A below average performance in their last match against the Patna Pirates will hurt the Giants. Gujarat could score just 20 points in the entire match. Defender Dipak Singh was the only player worth mentioning in the match as he scored 4 tackle points. The entire Gujarat defense was spineless as they earned just 8 tackle points in the entire match. Gujarat could execute just 10 successful raids out of their total 42 in the match. Such a performance is not inspiring for the Giants as they have slipped to the 6th spot in the points table. Gujarat Giants were forced to use many players in this match as most of their players from the starting 7 were off the mat. Though Fazel Attrachali is their biggest asset, Gujarat has been sloppy with their tackles in last few matches. Sourav Gulia and Sombir look a bit rusty as Gujarat has tried young defenders like D Balaji. 

The Giants have executed 237 successful team raids out of their 673 raids. They need to improve this efficiency. 

Their success rate in team tackles is just about 40%.

Gujarat has inflicted 19 all-outs this season apart from conceding 13.

The Giants have generally struggled against the Haryana Steelers. They have been able to win just 4 out of their 13 encounters. This may be as both teams follow a similar pattern on the mat. This is a very important match for the Giants as they have lost their last match. If they lose this one too, they may slip further down in the points table.

Haryana Steelers Preview

The Haryana Steelers have proved to be the most vibrant teams of season 10. After lagging in the first half of the tournament, they got their act together. Currently placed 5th in the points table, they are on the cusp of qualifying for the next round. Haryana has won 9 out of its 16 matches. As they travel to Delhi to play their first match here in this season, Haryana will be aiming for another big victory. But they will cross paths with their old rivals, the Gujarat Giants. The last time these teams met, Haryana had to final laugh as they won by just 2 points. It was a low scoring match as both sides tested each other. 

Coach Manpreet was animated through the match as usual. He will be pleased with his boys as this is the flavor of the Steelers. Star raider Siddharth Desai needs to be more agile as he looks a bit slow at times. Though he has scored back to back Super 10, Siddharth has not yet displayed his dangerous side. Most of the opposition teams have decoded ways to trap him collectively. Vinay has provided that additional raiding option. Yet the Steelers seem to be short of the third raider if in case Siddharth and Vinay are not able to score. The Steelers have tried young raider Shivam Patare who scored a high voltage Super 10 in the last match. 

The Haryana Steelers defeated the Bengal Warriors in their last match. Their raiders were on song as the trio of Siddharth, Shivam and Vinay scored 29 raid points. While the other defenders faltered, right cover Mohit Nandal scored 4 tackle points. Haryana inflicted 2 all-outs in the second half which took the steam out of the Bengal Warriors. With this victory, Haryana moved to the 5th spot in the points table. They will need a few more victories to stay in the top 5.

Haryana coach Manpreet Singh mentored the Gujarat Giants few seasons back and he knows everything about his former team. But Sultan Fazel Attrachali is in charge of the Giants and he can spring a surprise for the Steelers. Haryana has won 8 out of their 13 meetings with one match ending as a TIE.  Hence this will be a do or die match for the Gujarat Giants. Can the Haryana Steelers con the Giants into submission or will they breakdown against the tidy Gujarat defense?

Welcome to the battle of nerves as the Gujarat Giants take on the Haryana Steelers. This will be a contest for the most coveted 5th spot in the points table. Gujarat has been a bit untidy in their last few matches. It will be a challenge for their raiders to earn against the Steelers. Prateek Dahiya and Rakesh will earn enough raid points but none of them will be able to score a Super 10. The biggest concern for Gujarat will be their defense. Sombir will perform beyond expectations but Fazel Attrachali and others may not be able to save their fortress. 

The Haryana Steelers will unleash raiders Siddharth and Shivam Patare. One of them will score a Super 10. Captain Jaideep Dahiya and Mohit Nandal will be ruthless. Right corner Rahul Sethpal has been out of form, but he will bounce back with a stellar performance in this match. The Steelers will take the lead by half-time but the Giants will bounce back in the second half. The match will be full of aggressive tackles from both sides. The team which conceded lesser all-outs will emerge as the winners.

Haryana Steelers will win.
