Fazel Atrachali exudes confidence before game against Bengal –
It is set to be a great end to the year for the Pro Kabaddi League fans. Gujarat Giants will take on Bengal Warriors in the first game on 31st of December. Fazel Atrachali the Gujarat skipper has been in fine form during this season to cement his legacy as the best defender.
Maninder Singh on the other hand has been at its imperious best as far as the raiding is concerned. The 33-year-old has continued where he left off from last season and been a huge weapon for the Bengal Warriors.
Ahead of the game on Sunday, Ram Mehar Singh the Giants coach said to the media “While the opposition put a lot of focus on the likes of Fazel, one of the big turning points in our game against the Tamil Thalaivas was when Parteek got going. We played a dominant game for the majority of the match, and despite our mistakes, we could see that we were in the driver’s seat.”
Meanwhile Fazel Atrachali had this to say to the media “We have been playing as a team and the Tamil Thalaivas were concentrating a lot on me, but in that time it was good to see the other members come in and score the points,”
The onus is also on one man and that is none other than Maninder Singh. “Maninder is a good player, but I think I can tackle him. From our next training session our focus will be on the Bengal Warriors but I think now we are playing better as a unit, so things are more in control in the defensive side of things. And with the Bengal Warriors team, one needs to keep Maninder quiet, if he does well then, they do well. Unlike us, if Parteek doesn’t do well, then Rohit will or Rakesh will and I think we are in a good place.”
