Gujarat Giants aim to extend their three-match winning streak as they take on Telugu Titans in the Pro Kabaddi League Season 9 on Tuesday, 6th December 2022. The match is scheduled to begin at 8.30 PM IST and will be played at the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium in Hyderabad.
This will be a contest between teams who have struggled through the season. Telegu Titans have always been underachievers while the Fortune Giants could not write their own destiny. The Titans never took off while the Fortune Giants suffered turbulence throughout their journey. Both teams have themselves to blame for their fortunes.
The Titans have won just a couple of matches this season and they will play for pride. They have one more match after this which will end their journey for season 9. The Fortune Giants may still have an outside chance to make it to the next round. They have given themselves a breather after they beat U Mumba in their last game. Hence this will be a must-win match for Gujarat.
The Titans will give their best shot to rock the Fortune Giants’ boat as spoiling someone’s party comes with its own thrills. But the Gujarat Fortune Giants still have some chance to make amends and squeeze into the next round.
The Gujarat Fortune Giants seem to have woken up a bit late. They struggled through the season with their defense due to which they could not win consistently. They hovered in the bottom half of the points table as they could not get a proper combination in their defense. The Fortune Giants have been particularly good in their raiding department. When all seemed to be lost, the Fortune Giants have given themselves a lifeline when they beat arch-rivals U Mumba in their last match.
The Telegu Titans have been disappointing this season. A start-studded line-up along with deputy coach Manjeet Chillar who was part of Dabang Delhi who won the last season, still cannot cultivate a winning habit.
Gujarat Giants was down and out until last week but the team has made a last-minute resurgence and are still in contention for a spot in the playoffs. However it will be difficult as they needto win their remaining two matches and must also hope that the other results go their way in order to qualify.
The Telugu Titans have gone winless in their previous four games, falling by 20 points or more against the Dabang Delhi and Jaipur Pink Panthers. Furthermore, they have only 41 tackle points from seven games, the fewest of any club.
Gujarat Giants’ two-game winning streak came to an end after they were defeated by U Mumba by an eight-point margin in the previous game. In their previous game, the defense appeared clueless, with only four tackle points to their name. Still, the Giants are the favorites for the match.
