After an inspiring victory against Jaipur Pink Panthers in the opening match of Vivo ProKabaddi, The Eagles are all set to meet Gujarat FortuneGiants. The Gachibowli Indoor Stadium in Hyderabad witnessed a complete team effort from the Dabangs in our first match and would be expecting a similar performance.
After being down 9-16 at half-time, the Dabangs came back strongly as they went on to win the match 30-26. Meraj Sheykh led the way beautifully as he scored 7 points, the most by our player. Our defenders were also in the limelight, with Nilesh Shinde (5 points), Sunil (3 points) and Bajirao Hodage (2 points) all performing brilliantly. Viraj Landge, who was playing in his first PKL game, impressed one and all with his gritty defence as he scored 2 points. Abolfazel, who came as a substitute had a big impact on the game as he scored 4 important points.
Opponents Gujarat FortuneGiants are all set to play their first game of Vivo ProKabaddi. Captained by Sukesh Hegde, the Gujarat team has a mix of experienced and new players. Mahendra Rajput, Fazel Atrachali, Vikas Kale, Mahipal Narwal are some names which have featured in the past seasons and can play a decisive role for the FortuneGiants.
Confidence in the camp is sky-high as the Eagles will look to secure another win and make a perfect start to the Hyderabad leg of the season. All the best!
