In the sixth season of the pro-kabaddi league (PKL), the Gujarat phase starts from Friday, where host team Gujarat Fortune Giants will take advantage of their domestic conditions and want to strengthen their position in the league. Gujarat coach Manpreet Singh says that his team is playing well in the sixth season and it is not dependent on any player.
Gujarat will launch its domestic campaign against the competition against Yu Mumba. The team has so far lost only one match in eight matches, while it has won six consecutive wins and is staging a match.
Gujarat is on the third position with 34 points in the Zone-A table. Yue Mumba with 51 points in the table, first and the Puneri Paltan second place. However, Mumbai has 13 while Punari has played 14 games in total.
Gujarat will play six consecutive matches in their home. These six teams included Haryana Steelers and Dabang Delhi. The defeat of this season was a defeat for Gujarat, against Haryana and against the Delhi, the team played exciting draws from 32-32. However, the coach feels that he can not take any team lightly even on the home ground.
This time Iran’s legendary Defender Fazal is not athletic. He had kept Gujarat’s defense on his shoulders last season and played a key role in bringing the team to the final.
The coach says that who will have Akhatchali, he will be strengthened in the defense but his team also has players who are doing fine and replacing the Iranian player.
