HAR vs GUJ Dream11 : Haryana Steelers look to continue their ascendancy in PKL 7 when they square off against Gujarat in Wednesday’s opening encounter
After suffering six consecutive defeats in Pro Kabaddi League, Gujarat Fortunegiants finally ended up finding solace in their previous encounter, pulling off a maverick 29-26 to stem a howler of a run for them. It sees the side placed in eighth place ahead of today’s clash against Haryana Steelers, a performance last year’s finalists will be looking to garner momentum from ahead of today’s impending clash.
Conventionally one of the most consistent sides in the marquee league, for Gujarat Fortunegiants, PKL 7 has been their most horrendous outing till date. After sitting in the echelons of the league with three wins from their three opening encounters, the side have wavered in form, going an unprecedented downward spiral which sees them chasing a spot in the top 6 ahead of today’s clash against a reinvigorated Haryana Steelers.
Where the campaign has unravelled for Gujarat, it’s been completely opposing for the Steelers. After beginning life in PKL 7 in the worst plausible fashion, the side have been resurgent ever since. The return of Vikash Khandola has done wonders to the outfit, seeing them unlock their true potential to register wins on the bounce to climb all the way into fifth place.
In what was an exquisite raiding performance by them, Haryana Steelers defeated the Warriors in their previous outing in the same stadium where they take on Gujarat Fortunegiants today. It was one of the most scintillating bits of raiding efforts in the league till now, one which saw Vikash Khandola and Vinay intertwine their skill set in unison to epitomise how daunting an outfit they can be when functioning to the best of their capabilities.
Probable Playing 7
Sonu Jaglan, Rohit Gulia, Sachin, Parvesh Bhainswal, Sunil Kumar, Ruturaj Koravi, Pankaj
Vikash Kandola, Naveen, Vinay, Sunil, Dharmaraj Cheralathan, Ashish Sangwan, Vikas Kale
Although Gujarat managed to register a win in their previous clash, a topsy-turvy one which changed hands several times before finally landing in Gujarat’s way, today’s clash comes against a way too superior side. Haryana Steelers looking unstoppable in the raiding department, wiping apart opposition defences with points coming in from their entire raiding facet.
It’s what should see them register another win today and make it three successive wins to further make massive strides in the league standings.
