Gujarat Fortune Giants are a perfect example of a brick and mortar concept of team building. Without any big stars, under the able guidance of coach Manpreet, Fortune Giants have achieved phenomenal success against bigger sides. 

Jaipur Pink panther’s were the first winners of the PKL, but since then they have had a maverick journey through the seasons. This was primarily due to team combinations. 

They finished 7th last season as they lost their way mid way through the matches after a good start early on. They have some really talented players this time in the form of Deepak Niwas Hooda, Sandeep Dhull, Nitin Rawal. But the addition of veteran Dharamraj Cheralathan has bolstered their defence. They have a decent conversion rate of raids overall, but stealing of bonus points and empty raids will be a cause of concern.

Gujarat Fortune Giants will be a team to watch out for this season. Though they lost out on important players in the auction, the core still remains intact. Ajay Kumar, Mahendra Rajput and Parvesh Bhaiswal can pack in a punch, while the addition of Hawk Ravinder Pahal and Girish Ernak will give them the defensive superiority.

This will be a close call for Jaipur, as they will look to solve the Fortune Giant jigsaw puzzle. Make sure to check our selected betting apps in India before placing your kabaddi bets!

Gujarat Giants Preview

One of the very few sides which is extremely miserly when it comes to giving points to the opposition. Fortune Giants have a successful tackle percentage of 45 which is the highest amongst all teams. They may not score rapidly, but they do not leak points and that has been the highlight of their game.

Their biggest asset is controlling the pace of the game. Time and again they have used this plot to decimate the opposition and they have the talent to execute this in either half of the match, which makes it difficult for the opposition to come back.

Who can forget the massive super raid executed by Mahendra Rajput inflicting an all out on U Mumba in season 6, it captured the imagination of all kabaddi fans.

Along with experienced Sunil Kumar and Hadi Osterak, , young players like Vishav Chaudhary, Sohit Malik, Sonu Singh, Bhuvaneshwar and Harmajit have a golden opportunity to amalgamate themselves in this winning recipe. 

Though last season, Fortune Giants could not get into rhythm, this season will be another golden chapter for a team which has its own swag on the mat.

Surprise packages:

● Strategy and mind games are their main weapons.

● Parvesh, Ajay and Mahendra Rajput have graduated well to take the lead role.

● Ravinder Pahal is one of the best corners in the business.

● Animated and enthusiastic coach Manpreet is like an additional player on the mat.

● Hadi Osterak, Sunil Kumar will have to guide youngsters through the season to forge new combinations.

Jaipur Pink Panthers Preview

A very colourful team, but short of ideas, Jaipur Pink Panthers have been a story yet to unfold.  After tasting success in their very first season, they have not been able to replicate the same. Completely depended on their defence, they work around Deepak Niwas Hooda, Sandeep Dhull and Amit Hooda. This time they have added Dharamraj Cheralathan to the add more colour to their defence.

Their major concern is the high percentage of empty raids, unsuccessful tackles and low all outs inflicted.

They have the talent, its just about the execution. They will need to be very creative with their raids and innovative in their defence. With the Iranian flavour of Amin Nosrati and Amir Maleki, the raiding department looks good with Naveen, Sushil Gulia and Arjun Deshwal.

Fitness of its players will be another area of concern for the Pink Panthers. If they  can hold their nerve at crucial moments, this could be the season of their revival.

● Star All rounder Deepak Niwas Hoooda with 158 points including 146 raid points.

● Defender Sandeep Dhull with 73 tackle points. 

● Nitin Rawal and Sachin Narwal will have to contribute big time.

● Panthers need a balanced strategy of attack and defence.

Both teams will look to start on a positive note with this brand new season. Jaipur Pink Panthers will rely heavily on Deepak Niwas Hooda.  A lot will depend on how Cheralathan, Amit Kharb and Vishal Lather combine in the defence.

Pink Panthers will take some time to take off, Fortune Giants will take advantage of the situation to set the cat amongst the pigeons.

Fortune Giants will try out young raiders in the first half to take a healthy lead. Parvesh Bhaiswal, Sunil Kumar and Hawk Ravider Pahal will make life difficult for the Panthers.

Gujarat Fortune Giants will beat the Pink Panthers!!!
