BLR vs GUJ Dream11 Match Preview

The toppers of Zone A and B will collide in the first qualifier of Pro Kabaddi League 2018. We are talking about Gujarat Fortunegiants and Bengaluru Bulls who ended up on the numero-uno position in their respective groups.

The premier advantage of finishing at the top in the group stage is that you get one more chance to qualify for the finals. When the loser of Qualifier 1 faces the winner of Eliminator 3 in Qualifier 2. The winner of Qualifier 2 then advances for the summit clash against the winner of Qualifier 1.

Now, let's have a brief insight at the journey of the two teams;

Gujarat Fortunegiants

The team management took a bold step ahead of the auction when they let go their skipper Fazal Atrachali who led this side to the finals of PKL 2017. A lot of criticism they had to face but all the critics became their admirers when a young skipper Sunil Kumar who was probably captaining a PKL side for the first time led from the front and took this team to places.

With only three losses in 22 matches, Gujarat was undoubtedly the most relentless side for every opposition. Can they keep up their good work and proceed to the finals on Monday itself? We will have to wait and find out what happens tomorrow.

Bengaluru Bulls

A young lad who improvised himself to become the best raider of the season set his sight right from the word ‘Go‘. Pawan Kumar Sehrawat wasn't only a raider for Bengaluru Bulls but he was someone who made his presence felt in an already illustrious raiding department of Bengaluru Bulls which included Kashiling Adake and skipper Rohit Kumar.

This team had all the strength in their raiding facet but somehow lacking the quality in defence which somewhere made a blot in the mind of their supporters. But they managed to show some quality in their defence as well, with Mahender Singh and Ashish Sangwan being the initiators who comprehensively took down the opposition raiders in tandem and in the latter half of the tournament it was rookie Amit Sheoran who rose to the occasion and made his presence felt.
