Probable Top Performers
Probable Best Batter of the Match
Prerak Mankad – Gohilwad Gladiators
The 29-year-old scored a 26-ball 32 in the last game against Kutch Warriors but could not convert his start into a big knock. He has done well in domestic cricket on tough surfaces and will hold the key at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, where run-scoring hasn’t been easy.
Probable Best Bowler of the Match
Saurya Sanandiya – Gohilwad Gladiators
The right arm medium pacer has been able to swing the ball upfront and displayed his slower ones and yorkers at the death. In the last match also, he took two wickets against Kutch Warriors in a losing cause. He will be looking to perform much better this time to win the game for his team.
