In the penultimate of the Hyderabad leg as a part of the Pro Kabaddi League, an upheat of the Gujarat Fortune Giants squad will look to continue their winning run when they face off against the UP Yoddha in the 10th match at the Indoor Stadium in Hyderabad.
The fortune giants will be brimming with confidence as they even head into this game with a massive 42-44 win over defending champions Bangalore Bulls, and with both the raiding and defensive units coming to the party, the Sunil Kumar led side will be keen on retaining their winning run.
UP Yoddha, besides that, fell to a massive 31-point victory against the Bengal Warriors and will certainly need to up their game against the defense-heavy Fortune giants. Although none of their raiders picked up a Super 10, the fine show by the Sunil Kumar, More GB, and Sachin Tanwar combined brought about a big win for the Fortune Giants.
The return of the Rishahk could be a boost for the UP Yoddha, although his return from injury is uncertain, in which case the onus will yet again fall on the duo of the Monu Goyat and Shrikant Jadhav to score a massive chunk of the points.
Nitesh did pick up a couple of tackle points and was backed up by the Amit, but with none of the other defenders able to keep the Warriors raiders at bay, the likes of the Sachin and Narender will certainly need to up their game in today’s encounter.
