PKL 2017 final: Gujarat Fortunegiants lock horns with Patna Pirates, Match Preview
Gujarat Fortunegiants are all set to lock horns with Patna Pirates in the all-important final of the Pro Kabaddi League Season 5 at the Jawaharlal Nehru Indoor Stadium in Chennai. The Gujarat Fortunegiants absolutely decimated the Bengal Warriors in the 1st qualifier to seal their spot in the finals earlier this week. While the Patna Pirates reached the final by defeating the Warriors in the second qualifier. The Fortunegiants have been one of the stronger teams in the league as they have players like Iranian corners, Fazel Atrachali and Abozar Mighani and the Indian covers, Sunil Kumar and Parvesh Bhainswal. On the other hand, Patna Pirates, have majorly relied on Pardeep's rampant attacks that have given them the edge over other teams with the skipper amassing an average of at least 14 points in every match. He is supported in the attack by Monu and young all-rounder Vijay. However, it is the defence which is an area of concern for Patna with the likes of Vishal Mane and Sachin Shingade not being up to the mark while Jawahar Dagar and Jaideep have been sporadic with their good performances. Coming to the match prediction,well, looking at the strength of Gujarat team, it can be said that Fortunegiants can win the match but they have to keep Pardeep out of the equation like they did in their two previous matches.
