Bengaluru Bulls vs Gujarat Fortune Giants: As the Vivo Pro Kabaddi League starts on Saturday, the much anticipated and exciting tournament would see an action packed weekend. This would leave a pragmatic impression on the people for the entire tournament. Sunday’s game witnesses defending champions Bengaluru Bulls take on the previous year’s runners-up Gujarat Fortune Giants.
Gujarat Fortune Giants would want to seek revenge for the last year’s defeat in the finals against the Bengaluru Bulls team.
Here is a look at the key battles that might define the way the game goes:
Pawan Sehrawat is the skipper of Bengaluru Bulls and also a reliable raider for his side. He is already an established star in the tournament. and has proved his leadership skills. He has a record in his name of scoring 32 points in a single match. On the other hand, Sunil Kumar who is a defender and also the captain of his side would be leading the defensive department thereby, preventing the opposition raider to score a single point. It would be interesting how both the Captains fair against each other on Sunday’s game and might decide the course of the game.
Bengaluru Bulls vs Gujarat Fortune Giants: Mahender is one of the best young defenders in the side. He is nick-named “Bull-Dozer” by his coach as he has some strong defensive techniques under his pocket. He is an unpredictable, yet a dangerous player for the opposition as he dashes towards the raider with full force. Moreover, Gujarat Fortune Giants have Sachin Tanwar, who is equally dangerous and also possesses experience. He would be a key raider for his side, having guided Gujarat to two back-to-back Pro Kabaddi League finals.
Sachinfacing Mahender would be a heated battle and one the lovers of the game would relish.
Ashish Kumar is the star all-rounder of his side. As the seasons progressed, he has improved his raiding skills as well. In fact, in Pro Kabaddi Season 5, he had scored more raid points than tackle points and would be a potent force. He scored 70 raid points over just 14 tackle points.
Whereas, Vinod Kumar who is also a good all-rounder for his side Gujarat Fortunegiants will be considered in the probable seven for their match on Sunday. Vinod is yet to make a mark for his team, but has come good when called upon. Although, he enjoys a decent record in both raiding and defending, but looking at his records, he is more productive in the defending department. It would be interesting how Ashish and Vinod fare for their teams, playing against each other and it would also be very exciting to see who among the two, performs well for their team as an all-rounder.
