It has been a rollercoaster festive season at the PKL with a lot of upsets and surprises. Gujarat Fortune Giants and the Patna Pirates will look forward to increasing the intensity of this ride. 

The Fortune Giants didn’t break a sweat to beat the Telegu Titans in their last game. It was a good win for the Fortune Giants as it gave them important points. Raiders Rakesh and Prateek Dahiya performed well under pressure while the defenders trapped the Titans quite easily. The Fortune Giants have won 4 out of their 8 games and need to win more if they want to move up the ladder in the points table. 

The Patna Pirates used their tactical mastery to beat the UP Yodha. It was a very interesting game as the Pirates regulated the game and then suddenly foxed the Yodha in the second half to get them all out twice. That was the final nail in the coffin for the UP Yodha. But Patna still has a long way to go as they are placed 10th in the points table.

They take on the Fortune Giants and this will be a tricky affair for the Pirates.

Gujarat Giants Preview

Gujarat Fortune Giants is one of the most dangerous but unpredictable teams of the PKL. They blow hot and cold and it has become a norm to expect surprises from them.  They will take on the Patna Pirates in a crucial encounter of season 9. The Fortune Giants have played well but lost important games which have stagnated them at the 6th spot in the points table after 8 games. 

They had won consecutive games before they lost to arch-rivals U Mumba. They got an opportunity to revive and they beat the Telegu Titans quite easily to set up an all-important clash with the Patna Pirates. 

Gujarat Fortune Giants has used its resources quite well. They have a vibrant raiding team which includes Rakesh, Chandran Ranjit, new dubki king Prateek Dahiya, Mahendra Rajput, and Prashanth Kumar. Their defense has been quite consistent. Saurav Gulia and Rinku Narwal form the backbone of this defense while Arkam Shaikh and all-rounder Shankar Gadai have contributed significantly. 

Gujarat Fortune Giants has executed 137 successful team raids out of their 339 team raids.

They have also executed 65 successful team tackles in 8 games.

Fortune Giants have inflicted 13 all-outs on their opponents while conceding only 8.

But once in a while, they break down and lose important games. Coach Ram Mehar Singh has been working hard to get the team to maintain the intensity throughout the week.

The Gujarat Fortune Giants have always played explosively against the Pirates. Both teams do not settle for a TIE as the Fortune Giants have won 5 out of their 9 encounters. But this time the Pirates will be eager to loot everything as they are desperate to win. The Fortune Giants need to plan against this Pirate attack.

Patna Pirates Preview

After an initial spate of losses, the Patna Pirates are back on track. They have not lost any of their last 3 games as they have beaten the defending champions as well as the UP Yodha. They have a long way to go as they need to win matches more often. The Pirate fans were shocked at the beginning of the season but the festive season brought them good news as well as good luck for their team.

The Pirates have gone back to their original style, deceit, and loot. They conned Dabang Delhi in a thrilling match and won it by a margin of 4 points. This was their first win and the first loss of the season for Dabang. The Pirates then managed to hold the Bengaluru Bulls for a TIE. That was a wise decision by the Pirates as they were able to stay afloat in the points table. 

The most important turnaround for the Pirates in both these games was their defense. Captain Neeraj Kumar was back to his best while defenders Manish and left corner Mohemmedreza performed as expected. This has been complemented by the raiding income of Sachin Tanwar and Rohit Gulia. This is the formula that has always worked for the Patna Pirates.

The number of Super Raids and all-outs has drastically increased for the Pirates in their last 3 games which has resulted in a reversal of their fortunes.

But they will be up against a dangerous Fortune Giants side in their next encounter. This will be the biggest test for the Pirates so far this season. They will have to maintain their intensity and beware of unforced errors. The Patna Pirates beat the Fortune Giants effortlessly twice last season.

But this season, the Pirates haven’t been at their best. Hence deceit, precaution, and surprise element will be the key to the success of Patna Pirates.

The festivities continue with this encounter between the Patna Pirates and Gujarat Fortune Giants. Their encounters have always been entertaining and full of fireworks.

The Fortune Giants will be confident as they have been playing pretty well. It will be interesting to see which raiders are unleashed by the Fortune Giants. They will go ahead with Chandran Ranjit and Rakesh while Prateek will be used as their third raider. Defenders Saurav Gulia and Rinku Narwal will play an important role in the game as they will have to hunt down former teammate Sachin Tanwar.

The Patna Pirates will rely on their defense to improve their earnings and regulate the game. Mohammad Reza and Neeraj Kumar will play an important role while defenders Manish and Sunil will be crucial in the second half. Raiders Rohit Gulia and Sachin Tanwar will try and create panic in the Gujarat camp so that weak links can be exploited.

This will be one of the most explosive matches of the season and the result of this match will alter the course of the tournament.

Patna Pirates will win.
