Gujarat Fortunegiants team news
Gujarat Fortunegiants have had a poor PKL season seven having won just six of their 20 games. The Sunil Kumar-led team has lacked consistent performers and that reflects their position in the table.
As far as the team is concerned, skipper Sunil Kumar, leads the defence with a total of 46 tackle points and is supported by Parvesh Bhainswal and Ankit.
In the raiding departm ent, the standout performer for the Gujarat team has been Rohit Gulia who has collected 118 raid points this season. With 84 points in 16 games, Sachin has also put on a decent show this season and the team will bank on him to help Gulia. Meanwhile, GB More and Sonu Jaglan make up the seven starters.
Patna Pirates team news
The three-time PKL champions will now be playing for pride in their remaining games. Their star this season has been their captain Pardeep Narwal. Narwal has led from the front garnering a whopping 251 raid points this season but his mates have failed to compliment him.
Neeraj Kumar has done well in defence for the Pirates, garnering 51 points this season. Jang Kun Lee has just 52 raid points in 14 matches and that hs been the concern for the franchise who have failed to revive Pardeep whenever he has been out.
