HYD vs GUJ Dream11 Team Prediction : Gujarat look to snap out of a losing run in their second home match when they meet Telugu Titans today
What started off as a pitch perfect season for Gujarat Fortunegiants has shambolically started unravelling in recent times. Winning the first three of their matches, the side are currently on a three match losing spree, seeing them pummel all the way to seventh place in the points tally after challenging for top spot just a week back.
And currently playing in their home leg, the side failed to overhaul a disastrous run of form for them yesterday with the side being put down by Tamil Thalaivas. In what was a topsy-turvy encounter, one that saw Gujarat make an astonishing return as they went onto turnaround a huge deficit in the second half, the side failed to show the composure needed in the closing stages.
It saw them fail to get past the line with their defence being the one to blame as the side ended up conceding a super raid. Up against Telugu Titans today in the second match of the day, Gujarat will be looking to get their season back on track against a side who are slumped in last place with no wins to their name as of now.
Seeing their only point come off a draw against U.P. Yoddha, Telugu Titans were hammered by Bengaluru Bulls in their previous encounter, a 47-26 defeat which showcased how meek the side have been in defence. The raiding department too was dismal but the side will be glad to see their record signing, Siddharth Desai finally get his first super raid of the season.
Probable Playing 7
Sunil Kumar(C), Parvesh Bhainswal, Sachin Tanwar, Rohit Gulia, Ankit, Sumit, GB More
Abozar Mighani (C), Vishal Bhardwaj, Siddharth Desai, Suraj Desai, Farhad Milaghardhan, Krushna Madane, Armaan
With both the defences suffering at the moment, failing to show the discipline and responsibility needed to win matches, this match could end up being a high scorer. With both sides in dire need of a win, expect this to be a closely contested affair, one we subsequently see Gujarat Fortunegaints win.
What serves Gujarat so well is the fact that they possess a complete outfit, unlike their opponents who have relied too much on individual performances. Expect Gujarat to cruise to a win today and move back into the top spots in the league.

Dream 11 Picks
Defenders for HYD vs GUJ Dream11
A major reason for Gujarat losing yesterday was due to their defence failing to step up in unison and navigate its way to successful arm-chain tackles, blocks and body holds. However with a high 5 yesterday, we have Sunil Kumar come into our side along with Parvesh Bhainswal. He’s been in dismal form off late but today’s opposition is one against whom he could amass plenty of points and emerge as a key player for his side.
Despite Krushna Madane not starting the last couple of matches for his side, he could come into his side’s backline today after a drab showing by them in the previous encounter which saw three players register just one point in between.
All-Rounders for HYD vs GUJ Dream11
GB More’s specialisation has finally been changed with the striker being moved to the all-rounders’ segment after putting in both raids and tackles for his side this edition. He comes in for us along with Rohit Gulia with the all-rounder being his side’s highest scoring defender, registering a massive nine raids yesterday itself.
Up against an opponent who have been completely absent at the back, lacking any kind of semblance, expect Rohit to enjoy himself with a super 10 a realistic possibility.
Raiders for HYD vs GUJ Dream11
Sachin Tanwar picked up five raid points yesterday and comes in for us for this match while we’ve have decided to go in with Siddharth Desai from Telugu Titans. The second most expensive player in the league at 1.45 crore, he failed to justify the massive amount shelled out for him but with 11 raid points in the last encounter, he might just be in for some good points today as well.
Captain And Vice-Captain for HYD vs GUJ Dream11
Rohit is our side’s captain while we are making GB More the vice-captain.
