PUN vs GUJ Dream11 : Puneri Paltan and Gujarat Fortunegiants see time slipping out of their hands as the league stage encounters draw to a close
For 11th placed Puneri Paltan the upcoming four slated home leg encounters are the biggest and most momentous occasion of this edition of the Pro Kabaddi League. In what will be season defining fixtures for the outfit, decisive fixtures which could determine if they can make it to the top 6 or not this season, the unit take on Gujarat Fortunegiants in their opening home leg encounter this Saturday.
Currently languishing in the trenches of the points tally, just one place above bottom finish, for Puneri Paltan this season has been nothing but a misdemeanour. The side have managed to register just 4 wins, ones which have seen them amass all of 29 points with the unit being put down with relative ease by their opponents. They have offered little in the way of attack or defence with their previous result epitomising that narrative, a small but critical defeat to the Warriors as they slumped to their 8th loss of PKL 7.
Elsewhere, for their opponents of the night, today’s contest is equally critical. Currently in 8th place, Gujarat Fortunegiants have gone from being the most consistent side in the land of the marquee league to a side which has failed to find its footing in the seventh edition. Defeated by U.P. Yoddha in their previous encounter, the team currently find themselves in eight h place, persistently left chasing a spot in the top 6 of the league standings.

PUN vs GUJ Match Prediction
Determining a winner from today’s clash is a little dicey proposition given the inclement showings both these floundering ides have dished out but what serves Gujarat better here is their defence. Puneri Paltan have offered little in the way of a challenge infront of resounding raiding units and with Gujarat having one in their artillery, the side should be able to scram through to a win today.

With this clash expected to be an attacking feast, one which sees both the sides’ attack leave no stone unturned in helping the side amass 5 crucial points, we have decided to keep things cheap and light in the defensive facet. We are beginning by getting in Gujarat’s leading tackle point scorer Sunil Kumar as the first player here with the defender having picked up 41 points till now.
If any side are going to go about their business of putting on a responsible defensive show, it’s going to be Gujarat, seeing us get in Ruturaj Koravi as well while from Puneri Paltan we have opted for Shubham Shinde.
PUN vs GUJ Dream11 All-Rounders
At a time when Puneri Paltan’s defence has offered, actually little next to nothing, Manjeet has emerged as a sold and stellar performer for the side. He’s waged a lone battle in the defensive facet, using his quick tackling ability to close out spaces, always being someone to pounce on the raiders and following their every move to the last step.
He has also been pivotal in the raiding side of things, snaring 69 points to make him an instant pick for us while from Gujarat we have opted to go ahead with Rohit Gulia. The side’s leading raider, he has a dismisal kitty of 69 points and looks set to add to that tally today.
Raiders for PUN vs GUJ Dream11
Someone who has worked effectively in tandem for Gujarat in raiding has been Sachin Tanwar with his 64 points being critical to his side’s consummate success in the facet. Elsewhere from the opposition we have Pankaj Mohite make an entry into our Dream 11 side owing to the way he’s impressed and punched way above his weight this season.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We are going in with Tanwar as our side’s captain for this match while Gulia is chosen as the vice-captain.
