After winning the final game of our home leg, our Giants had a few days off before the next game. In our last game, we scored our first win against the Haryana Steelers with a dominating performance. We dominated them and led the game right from the start. Sachin Tanwar added another Super 10 to his name whereas, Parvesh Bhainswal completed a hat-trick of High 5s in our last game. With a win against the Haryana Steelers, we went on top of the table for a brief moment. With two fewer games played, we still have an advantage over U Mumba to top the table.
With six days off we now look forward to playing Puneri Paltan for the 3rd time in VIVO PKL 6. With a stellar performance in our last game, our players will be confident to take on the Puneri Paltan who are yet to beat us this season. With players like Nitin Tomar and Girish Ernak, they have a team that can pull off a win from anywhere. Sunil Kumar will have his teammates motivated as we look to continue our unbeaten record against the Paltan. We will have to perform to our best ability and assert our will on them as we look to continue our winning ways against them.
Battle within the Battle: Pravesh Bhainswal vs. Girish Ernak
With 42 points and four High 5s to his name, the left corner defender is not far behind our Parvesh Bhainswal in the list for top defenders of season 6. Girish Ernak, the captain of the Puneri Paltan, will be a player to watch out in our match. Whereas Parvesh Bhainswal is coming off three back to back High 5s of his own and will be looking to continue his incredible form from our home leg into this game. It will be a battle to watch out for.
Finishing the home leg on a high with a Super 10, Sachin Tanwar will be looking to continue his performance against Puneri Paltan. Our five-star raider has been a critical player in all our matches. To maintain our unbeaten streak against the Puneri Paltan, Sachin Tanwar will play an important role as he leads the raiding department for us.
With an excellent performance during our home leg, K Prapanjan has emerged as the second raider for us. He has the experience on his side which he uses to back Sachin in the raiding department. His raiding skills will be an important to us as we will need yet another player do to raiding when we don’t have Sachin on mat.
