After playing 5 games in 9 days, the Gujarat Giants will be back in action after a much-needed 8-day break. They face Haryana Steelers at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex in Pune. The Giants started strong by winning their first three games but then faced two close losses. 

The Giants are still in a decent position on the points table, but would aim to get back to their winning ways, starting with their match against Haryana in Pune.

One standout player for the Gujarat Giants has been Sonu Jaglan. He performed exceptionally well with Super 10s and Super Raids in the initial games and continued with a good performance against Jaipur Pink Panthers. Although the Giants were leading at half-time in that game for the first time this season, the end result did not go their way. They will be hoping to regain their initial form and get back to winning ways.

Haryana Steelers have played 4 matches and won 3 of them. They stumbled in their opening game against UP Yoddhas but have been strong since then. Their team boasts an experienced raider in Siddharth Desai and is capably led by Jaideep Dahiya.

Looking at their past encounters, Haryana has won 7 out of the 12 matches against the Giants. They seem to have an advantage historically, but this is a new season, and anything can happen. The Giants, having recuperated over the last week, will be fresh and ready for action!
