Both, the Gujarat Giants and Bengaluru Bulls are coming into this contest with lopsided victories in their previous encounters. While the Giants brushed past the Telugu Titans in their last encounter, the Bulls thrashed Dabang Delhi by the second-biggest margin in PKL history.

Strategic Takeaways

The Bengaluru Bulls have been on a rampage in PKL 2021, led from the front by their skipper Pawan Sehrawat. It has been a complete all-round effort so far for the Bulls, with even their defensive unit chipping in with points at various crucial junctures.

The Gujarat Giants, on the other hand, have been struggling to keep up with their rivals, thanks to the inconsistent show from their famed defensive unit. They have found new stars in the raiding duo of Rakesh Narwal and Rakesh HS and would be hoping that their defensive unit finds their form soon.

Head to Head

The Giants have a slight edge over the Bulls when it comes to head to head encounters and they would be hoping to extend this further when they take to the mat tonight.

Key Battle

Pawan Sehrawat v/s Gujarat Giants

The Gujarat Giants coach Manpreet Singh believes defending well is the key to success. Following his philosophy the Giants do have one of the strongest defensive units on paper in PKL 2021, but they are still to hit their peak form. Up against a raging Pawan Sehrawat, the Giants defense will have to be at their best if they are to win this contest.
