Gujarat Giants (GUJ) will take on Haryana Steelers (HAR) in match 28 of Pro Kabaddi Season 8 at Sheraton Grand Whitefield, Bengaluru on Sunday, January 2.
GUJ vs HAR Dream11 prediction
Gujarat Giants and Haryana Steelers have both played four games each in PKL season 8, and have picked up just one win in the process. But, what makes GUJ favourites in Sunday’s contest is their fifth-place position on the Pro Kabaddi standings. (12 points from five games).
Haryana, on the flip side, sits 10th on the standings with seven points following their third loss in four outings against Bengaluru Bulls.
One should note that both GUJ and HAR have good defensive units thus a low-scoring encounter is on the cards.
GUJ vs HAR Dream11 team tips for Pro Kabaddi Season 8
Top tip: Best raider
Fantasy players should draft in Rakesh Narwal as the top raider for this fixture. The Gujarat Giants star has been in top form this season with 41 points from four matches. While he has completed 31 successful raids, Narwal has also managed to register two Super 10s and eight points from do-or-die raids making him a major threat against Haryana Steelers.
Top tip: Best defender
Surender Nada of the Haryana Steelers is the best option amongst the defenders. The HAR defender has held the fort alongside Jaideep for his team in PKL season 8, completing two Super tackles and amassing 14 tackle points. With 286 fantasy points, Nada comes at a cost of 16.0 credits.
Top tip: Best all-rounder
Haryana Steelers' Jaideep is the outright favourite all-rounder. Although listed as a defender in fantasy, Jaideep enters with some impressive numbers in this match-up - 15 tackle points, 14 successful tackle points and two High 5s. The inclusion of Jaideep in fantasy teams should come as no surprise as he has the most fantasy points (324) prior to the GUJ vs HAR match.
