PKL 10: Gujarat Giants predicted starting 7
Gujarat’s defense looks stronger this time.
Gujarat Giants is one of those teams in the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) that has shown great consistency. The team has reached the finals twice, but have failed to lift the trophy. Also last season the team performance was not that good. Under the leadership of new coach Ram Mehar Singh, Gujarat Giants team was able to win only 9 out of 22 matches and had to face defeat in 11 matches and the team was ranked eighth in the points table. Despite winning four out of the last five matches, Gujarat could not make it to the playoffs. The team would like to perform better during the 10th season.
During the auction of the 10th season of PKL, Gujarat Giants bought a total of 14 players. The team has included the most successful defender in PKL history, Fazal Atrachali, and he will also be the captain of the team this time. Gujarat had bid Rs 1 crore 60 lakh for Fazal. Apart from this, players like Mohammad Nabibaksh and Rohit Gulia are also part of the team. In such a situation, the team of Gujarat Giants looks very strong. Let’s know what could be the possible starting seven of Gujarat for the 10th season of PKL.
In Raiding, the eyes will be on Parteek Dahiya
This time Gujarat Giants have six options in raiding and the team also has two-three all-rounders. The team had retained many raiders before the auction, which included players like Prateek Dahiya and Rakesh. Apart from this, Rohit Guliya is also a part of the team and in such a situation, Gujarat has many options and they can come on the mat with these players.
If we talk about the starting seven, then Prateek Dahiya will get the first chance because he had shown a brilliant performance last season. Prateek Dahiya had scored 183 points. Apart from this, Rohit Guliya can also be played, because he has a lot of experience and he is a great raider. Prateek is a right raider and Rohit is a left raider and due to this, a great combination will be formed. Apart from this, another right raider Rakesh Sangroya can also be played. These three raiders can be part of the starting seven.
There are many options in defense, including Fazel Atrachali:
With the arrival of Fazel Atrachali, the defense of Gujarat Giants has got a lot stronger and this time he can be seen taking command of the team. Gujarat team has always been known for its defense and the same may happen this time too. Fazel Atrachali can be played in the left corner and Sombir Gulia in the right corner. If we talk about covers, then either Deepak Rathi and Ravi Kumar can be played and Mohammad Nabibaksh can get a place in the team as an all-rounder. In such a situation, Gujarat’s playing seven will become very strong.
