DEL vs GUJ Dram11 : Delhi look to hammer themselves into first place as Gujarat Fortunegiants come calling in Sunday’s first match
Regarded and highly revered as one of the most consistent sides in the land of Pro Kabaddi League ever since making an onset in season 5, Gujarat Fortunegaints have seen their reputation been ripped apart to shreds in PKL 7. Having lost a combined 10 matches in their previous two seasons, the side have lost 9 matches alone in the ongoing edition, a flabbergasting run of form, one which was never associated with the side.
Losing to Puneri Paltan yesterday, the side stayed in eighth place with just the five wins in the season, an ordeal which sees them ever slipping away from a spot in the top 6. From being finalists in PKL 6 to slumping horrifying, the slump is perhaps one of the biggest and most surprising take away from this season with the side’s predicament only bound to get even more perilous today.
Up against league leaders Dabang Delhi K.C., Gujarat are encountering a match which is the last contest the side would have wanted to play under such shambolic circumstances. They are up against an outfit who have intertwined their skill set in both the attacking and defensive segment pinch perfectly, delivering terrific displays on a consistent basis to sit clear of everyone else in the echelons of the league standings.
Looking to consolidate that spot as the side from the capital goes traversing out for its 12th win in 15 matches, we envisage Delhi to be unforgiving in their approach today. They know Gujarat are extremely vulnerable at the moment, a side who can be not only defeated but ripped apart and sent to the cleaners and will be looking to capitalise on their harrowing form.
Probable Playing 7
Naveen Kumar, Ravinder Pahal, Meraj Sheykh, Anil Kumar, Joginder Singh, Vishal Mane
Rohit Gulia, Sunil Kumar, Sachin, Parvesh Bhainswal, Pankaj, Sonu Jaglan, Sonu Gahlawat
DEL vs GUJ Match Prediction
Gujarat Fortunegiants will not only lose today but be bludgeoned by a way superior Delhi outfit. With the defending segment collapsing, Gujarat have had nothing to write home about with their raiding outfit hardly having any names to win us over. In this form, Gujarat should be extremely wary of Delhi who look set to unravel them today.

DEL vs GUJ Dram11 Defenders
With Gujarat’s highest scoring raider having a meagre 75 points, Delhi are going to love their time out in the middle today. An already stern and stringent defence is going to find it all too easily pummel Gujarat when it comes to putting an end to their reading efforts, seeing us bring in the custodians of Delhi’s defence for this encounter.
The side’s leading defender comes into our side with Ravinder Pahal having 38 points in his kitty. He’s being perfectly assisted and complimented by Joginder Singh with the duo forming one of the most menacing partnerships in defence, seeing both of them come into our today.
All-Rounders for DEL vs GUJ Dram11
It’s another duo from Delhi which represents us over here with the first name being of Meraj Sheykh. It’s been a gradual induction for him into Delhi’s playing 7 but his previous display in Delhi’s 5-36 trouncing of Tamil Thalaivas should be enough for him to get another place right from the onset today.
All-rounder Vijay comes in as well from the side with us opting for two names who’ll contribute in both the segments of their side’s game.
Raiders for DEL vs GUJ Dram11
He picked up his 12th super 10 of the season in the previous match, seeing him put up 174 raid points now making Delhi’s Naveen Kumar an instant pick for us. He’s the first player to be revived and will be carrying out the majority of his side’s raiding efforts as a torrid Gujarat defence, a script which should see him amass a bagful of points today.
Elsewhere from Gujarat we have gotten in Sachin Tanwar and Harmanjit Singh to complete our side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Delhi’s Vijay is our side’s captain for today while Naveen has been picked out as the vice-captain.
