PKL Season 10: Home Team Gujarat Giants Aims To Make Four in a Row, Check Predicted Playing 7 Against Patna Pirates
The home team, the Gujarat Giants, have had a phenomenal start to their Pro Kabaddi League Season 10 campaign. The franchise has won its first three consecutive matches and is looking very solid as a team. It would not be a surprise to anyone if they continue this impeccable form and make it four wins on the trot in their next league match against the Patna Pirates on Thursday, December 7, 2023, at 9:00 p.m. IST at the Arena by TransStadia, Ahmedabad.
Rakesh has been brilliant with his raiding, whereas Fazel Atrachali is doing what he does best. But the real hero for the Gujarat Giants has been Sonu Jaglan, who was retained as a Category C raider by the management. Below is their predicted starting seven for the match against the Patna Pirates:
1. Center: Rakesh
Rakesh, the lead raider of the Gujarat Giants, will be playing in the center position for this match. He has been in very good form this season. Rakesh played a crucial role in Gujarat’s victory in the last match, as he took nine raid points.
2. Left Cover: Mohammad Nabibakhsh
The Iranian all-rounder, Mohammad Nabibakhsh, who is a fantastic player on the Kabaddi mat, will be in that left-back position for the Gujarat franchise. He has not created much impact this season in the defense department until now.
3. Right Cover: Sourav Gulia
The talented defender, Sourav Gulia, will be in that right cover position, donning the Gujarat jersey. Sourav has not had the best of starts to this season of the PKL, as he has been leaking a lot of points in the defense.
4. Left Corner: Fazel Atrachali
The Sultan of the sport of Kabaddi and the captain of the Gujarat Giants team, Fazel Atrachali, have started the season with a bang. Along with eight tackle points, Fazel also has a raid point to his name, which he earned in the last match against the U Mumba.
5. Right Corner: Sombir
Sombir, who was one of the best defenders of the PKL season 9, has started the season 10 from where he left off the last time around. Sombir already has eight tackle points against his name in just three matches.
6. Left In: Rohit Gulia
The all-rounder, Rohit Gulia, who is primarily playing as a raider, has done his job perfectly for the team. In the last match against the U Mumba, when the team needed him to step up, he lived up to expectations and took seven crucial raid points.
7. Right In: Sonu Jaglan
Already the find of the season, Sonu Jaglan is expected to be a part of the starting lineup after coming in as a substitute player in the first three matches. Sonu is currently leading the raid points chart with 32 points.
Predicted Starting 7 of the Gujarat Giants against the Patna Pirates: Rakesh, Mohammad Nabibakhsh, Sourav Gulia, Fazel Atrachali (c), Sombir, Rohit Gulia, and Sonu Jaglan. The Giants are in red-hot form and will be eyeing making full use of this form by getting their fourth straight win of the season.
