The two teams last faced off in Greater Noida where Gujarat Fortunegiants captain Sunil Kumar delivered an eight-tackle-point performance to help his team beat Jaipur Pink Panthers by a scoreline of 36-25.

Deepak Niwas Hooda’s incredible form has seen him score 57 raid points in his last five appearances, averaging a mammoth 11.40 raid points per game, making him one of the league’s most in-form players. The raider has amassed 152 raid points this campaign and, with five games left in the league stage, the possibility of a first-ever 200-raid-point season looms large for the mercurial raider. Hooda holds the key for his team’s offence, indicated by the fact that his tally of raid points is a 108 more than Jaipur Pink Panthers’ next best raider.

Parvesh Bhainswal has emerged as one of the league’s premier Cover defenders in Season 6 and is currently involved in a battle for the Best Defender award with U Mumba’s Fazel Atrachali and UP Yoddha’s Nitesh Kumar. Bhainswal’s 71 tackle points in 19 appearances see him third in the list of defenders with the most tackle points this season and his average of 3.74 tackle points per match ranks second-best in the league. However, his tackle strike rate of 67.61 is the best in Pro Kabaddi Season 6 among all players with over 20 tackle points. Prolific as well as efficient, Bhainswal has enjoyed a magnificent campaign and will aim to continue in the same vein for the rest of the season.

In their nine duels so far, Hooda has got the better of Bhainswal on seven occasions while the Left Cover has managed to tackle the raider twice. An intriguing battle between two of the league’s most in-form players, this duel is certain to take centre stage when Jaipur Pink Panthers and Gujarat Fortunegiants battle on Sunday.
