The New Year is inching closer, but vivo Pro Kabaddi is bringing the party three days in advance with a couple of blockbuster fixtures.
Pardeep Narwal and U.P. Yoddha will take on the daunting Gujarat Giants defence as both teams aim for their second win of the campaign.
U.P. Yoddha suffered their second loss in three games in their previous outing against the Gujarat Giants. Pardeep Narwal finished the night with just three points, his lowest in quite some time. The team will take solace in Surender Gill’s brilliant Super 10 and will want the young raider to continue his form and carry the raiding load until Pardeep hits top gear.
The Giants took just three games to complete the result set after their last game finished in a tie. They have now lost, won and tied one game each this season. They will be eager to get another in the win column on Wednesday. Their defence has been as solid, and the raiding unit, led by youngster Rakesh and Rakesh Narwal, has held its own. A slight improvement in performance from the raiding unit could be a game-changer for the Giants.
The Giants have won three of their five matches against the U.P. Yoddha, who have emerged victorious only once. The teams shared the spoils on one occasion.
This 20th Match of U.P. Yoddha vs Gujarat Giants is set to telecast at 8:30 PM IST. The LIVE action from vivo Pro Kabaddi Season 8 can be watched on the Star Sports Network and LIVE streaming on Disney+Hotstar.
