Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

Gujarat team have regained the momentum by winning back to back three matches in the tournament. In the previous game, they outclassed Odisha as their bowlers jointly gave some brilliant performance. Roosh Kalaria took three wickets and was well partnered by the senior spinner of the team Piyush Chawla, who also dismissed three batsmen.

However, their skipper Parthiv Patel couldn’t perform well and got out after scoring three runs. He would be looking to come up with good performance in the game against Jharkhand.
