A winning start to the campaign for the defending champions would have provided a lot of confidence to all the members of the camp. It was not an easy victory and the Bengaluru Bulls were chasing the match for the most part.
A period of supreme defense where they managed to pull of some spectacular Super Tackles brought them back into the match after which Pawan Kumar Sehrawat worked his magic.
Sehrawat ended the night with 9 raid points and showed his ability to deliver under pressure has not waned at all. The Patna Pirates had done their homework against him but Pawan Kumar Sehrawat kept on coming up with answers.
Rohit Kumar provided very good support to Sehrawat while the defense was led by Amit Sheoran who ended with a High 5 himself.
Perhaps the one thing that the Bengaluru Bulls would be working on is to ensure they don’t fall behind in the mathc gainst the Gujarat Fortunegiants. That defense is a lot tighter than Patna’s and will clawing back points is going to be much harder.
The form of the Bengaluru Bulls looks good right now because Pawan Kumar Sehrawat is in good form. It’s as simple as that.
The core of the Gujarat Fortunegiants side has been kept together for Vivo Pro Kabaddi League 2019 and this is why we believe they are going to be a tough opponent for everyone they came against.
This was the side that lost the least number of matches in the previous season.
The Gujarat Fortunegiants have one of the strongest defences in the PKL. They have retained Parvesh Bhainswal and Sunil Kumar who are going to have their hands full against Pawan Kumar Sehrawat.
We think the contest between Bhainswal and Sehrawat in particular is going to be integral to the outcome of the match.
Sachin Kumar is going to be leading the attack for the Gujarat Fortunegiants. We hope he has taken some lessons from the performance of Siddharth Desai on the opening match. Sachin Kumar was an unknown quantity in the previous season but teams would have much better prepared plans for him this time around.
Sachin Kumar is going to be supported by GB More who has shifted base from the Puneri Paltan.
Both of these players are excellent raiders and ensure that the Gujarat Fortunegiants do not have any holes in their lineup.
Bengaluru Bulls vs Gujarat Fortunegiants PKL 2019 is going to be played at the Gachibowli Stadium, Hyderabad on the 21st July 2019.
<h3> Dream11 team for Bengaluru Bulls vs Gujarat Fortunegiants<h3>
We think the Dream 11 picks for Bengaluru Bulls vs Gujarat Fortunegiants must contain the best raiders from the both sides and try to pick as manay as the best defenders from the Gujarat Fortunegiants.
Defenders: We have picked Parvesh Bhainswal, Sunil Kumar, AMit Sheoran, and ANkit for our dream 11 team. Three out of these four walk into any Dream11 team while the fourth one is a calculated risk. We jabe picked Ankit just because is available at 9 points and even though he may not play a role in the match, he allows us to pick the other best6 players.
All-rounder: We have picked Ashish Kumar as the only all-rounder for our team. He is a most a certain starter for the Bnegakuru Bulls and will play a decent role during the match.
Raiders: We have picked Pawan Kumar Sehrawat and Sachin Kumar Tanwar as our two raiders. These are going to be the primary weapons for this match and should get us plenty of Deam11 points.
Captain and Vice-Captain: We have picked Pawan Kumar Sehrawat as captain and Parvesh Bhainawal as the vice-captain for this match.

Pawan Kumar Sehrawat was close to a Super 10 on the opening night with 9 points to his name while Amit Sheoran claimed his first High-5 of the season. Sachin Kumar was the highest scorer for the Gujarat Fortunegiants in the previous season with 349 points to his name and 14 Super 10’s.
The Bengaluru Bulls may have won the first match but we think their dependence on Pawan Kuamr Sehrawat is a bit troubling. The Gujarat Fortunegiants have the defense to be able to neutralize him and the offense to inflict some serious pain of their own.
Bet on the Gujarat Fortunegiants to win.
