Our Giants started the home leg with a clinical performance and victory over the Bengal Warriors with an all-around team performance, which had all the players contributing. Even without our lead raider Sachin Tanwar, our raiders K Prapanjan and Ajay Kumar took up the responsibility leading the team with 9 and 6 raid points to their name.
Our defenders put on yet another clinical display and helped the team with timely tackles, making it difficult for the Bengal Warriors to make any comeback in the game. Parvesh Bhainswal is proving to be the mainstay of the team claiming yet another for the Defender of the Match award. He has been consistently improving in every game and features in the top 10 defenders of the league this season.
Tonight, we face a new challenge against the Bengaluru Bulls. A team which has been one of the strongest raiding unit in the VIVO PKL 6. The Bulls are coming off a narrow defeat against the U Mumba in a match where they clawed their way back after being dominated in the first half, which speaks volumes about the ability they possess. It's a match which has the capacity to provide fireworks for the Kabaddi fans all over. Bulls have players like Pawan Kumar Sehrawat who has been firing on all cylinders whereas our own Sachin Tanwar is not very far behind. We will be aiming for nothing less than 5 points and to extend our winning streak.
The Matadors of Gujarat will attempt to stop the Bulls of Bengaluru.

Ashish Kumar will be a key defender for the Bulls as they look to move past their previous game and improve on the defensive side of the mat. With past few performances not to his standards, Sunil Kumar will be looking to bounce back and help the team gain the victory. Both defenders will be crucial for their respective teams as they look to stop top raiders on the other side of the mat.
With an excellent outing in the last match against the Bengal Warriors, K Prapanjan will be full of confidence. He will look to carry his form from the previous game into this one and provide the extra spark against the Bulls. He will be needed as we take look to keep our unbeaten home streak alive.
The defence will play a key role in stopping the offensive juggernaut of the Bengaluru Bulls. Parvesh Bhainswal has been a consistent figure in our defence. With timely tackles in our matches during the winning streak. In our match against the Bulls and the lethal Pawan Sehrawat, he will have to be in top form again and provide stability in the defence.
