Gujarat Giants have won 13 out of their 21 matches this season while the defending champions have won 15 out of their 21 matches. As both teams have qualified for the next round, the final league match of the season will be a formality for both teams. The Gujarat Giants blanked out the UP Yodha in their last match while the Jaipur Pink Panthers had to work overtime to defeat the spirited Telegu Titans. 

The Gujarat Giants do not have big names in their raiding. With the trio of Prateek, Rakesh and Sonu, they have relied on team work to trouble their opponents. Captain Fazel Attrachali is a shrewd captain and with the help of defenders like Sombir and Dipak Singh, they have conned their opponents. The Pink Panthers have their star raider Arjun Deshwal who has been in sensational form. The Jaipur defense has been immaculate with defenders like Ankush, Sunil Kumar and Iranian Reza Mirbhageri. Hence this will be a face-off between Fazel Attrachali and Sunil Kumar. This will be a wonderful opportunity for Gujarat to take its game to another level before the eliminators.

Gujarat Giants Preview

A strong defense led by captain Fazel Attrachali has made it almost impossible for their opponents to break in. Gujarat Giants started the season by beating the Telegu Titans followed by a victory over the Bengaluru Bulls. They were stretched in their encounter with arch-rivals U Mumba which they won by just 2 points. Gujarat Giants lost their fourth match to the Patna Pirates. Though this was a close encounter, Gujarat tried to experiment midway during the match. Their main raider Sonu was out post half-time and they gave some match time Prateek Dahiya, right cover Deepak Singh and all-rounder Narender Hooda. 

Gujarat had a dull phase mid-season where they could not earn effectively. They lost some matches by huge margins. But they are tenacious as they came back to their last 4 matches. By accumulating 70 points from 21 matches, they secured the berth for the next round. Gujarat Giants defeated the UP Yodha in their last match. Though their support raiders could not earn enough, Prateek scored a Super 10. This was not a clinical performance by the Giants, but it was good enough for them to win the match. Right cover Dipak Singh scored a Hi 5 while they inflicted 2 all-outs in the second half to outwit UP Yodha. 

Gujarat Giants have a raiding efficiency of about 35% which needs to improve. But whenever their raiders have failed, the defense compensates for the losses. Their success rate in team tackles is about 43%. They have executed 212 successful team tackles which includes 22 Super tackles. This proves that the Gujarat defense is able to fend attacks even with less number of players on the mat. It has been their captain Fazel Attrachali who has executed some daring tackles in difficult situations thus avoiding an all-out.

The Giants lost their last league match to Jaipur by just 3 points. It was a close encounter where Gujarat lost intensity in the dying moments of the game. Gujarat Giants have won 6 out of their 13 encounters with the Pink Panthers. Unfortunately they have not beaten Jaipur since season 8. Last season they forced a TIE in one of the league games while they lost another. Hence this will be redemption for the Giants as they take on the defending champions.

Jaipur Pink Panthers Preview

The defending champions will be playing their last league game of the season at the Panchkula. They have already qualified for the next round. Captain Sunil Kumar leads from the front. Left cover KS Abhishek has been a good addition to their defense. But veteran Sahul Kumar needs to get back in form in order to help his team defend more efficiently. Sahul Kumar was one of the best defenders of season 9. But Sahul Kumar has executed 26 successful tackles in 19 matches. But the highlight of the Jaipur defense is their captain Sunil Kumar and Iranian Reza Mirbhageri who have executed 96 successful tackles collectively in 21 games. To top it all, left corner Ankush continues to haunt the opponents with 62 successful tackles in the season.

Hence the Pink Panthers form an impregnable wall in every game. Jaipur has won 15 out of their 21 matches and they are on course to the next round where they will attempt to defend their title. Their raiding looks a bit fragile if at all Arjun Deshwal fails. Arjun was the MVP of season 9 and he has continued the form this year too. With 249 raid points from just 189 raids, he leads the list. The only concern for the Pink Panthers are their support raiders. They have tried the option of Ajith, Bhavani Rajput and Abhijit Malik. All the support raiders have earned nicely but not effectively. 

The Pink Panthers had a tough time against the Telegu Titans in their last match. They tried a few new players as they won the match by just 7 points. Arjun Deshwal scored 16 raid points while Abhijit Malik added another 8. But Captain Sunil Kumar was in devastating form as he scored 8 tackle points. Reza Mirbhageri scored a Hi 5 too. Jaipur tried defenders like Lucky Sharma and Navneet in this match. With qualification secured, the Pink Panthers will take on the Gujarat Giants in their last league match of the season. Their rivalry is quite old as both teams have unique characters in their squad. This will be a good opportunity for the Pink Panthers to try out some new players. Jaipur has to be particularly vary of Gujarat captain Fazel Attrachali. This will be one of the toughest encounters for the Pink Panthers who will give the final touches to their squad before the eliminators.

Welcome to the dress-rehearsal before the eliminators as the Gujarat Giants take on the defending champions. Gujarat may have won 13 out of their 21 games, but they still have some weakness in their raiding. Prateek Dahiya will score a Super 10 but he may not get enough support from the other raiders. Defender Sombir has been their rock of Gibraltar as he will be aggressive against Jaipur raider Arjun Deshwal. Right cover Dipak Singh will be dangerous to handle. 

The Pink Panthers will depend on their star raider Arjun Deshwal who will trouble the Gujarat defense. Jaipur may try a few new young raiders as this is their last league match. But the Jaipur defense will be too hot to handle as left corner Ankush and Reza Mirbhageri will target the Gujarat support raiders. The first half may be lukewarm but both teams will attack relentlessly post half-time. The team which will inflict the most all-outs will win the match.

Jaipur Pink Panthers will win.
