Sunil and Parvesh are out of form

The elite cover combination of Sunil Kumar and Parvesh Bhainswal have not managed to reach the heights they reached in season 6. While there have been some very good performances from them, there have also been a number of games where they have failed to show up entirely. They have both clicked only in a handful of matches. In the 4 matches where both Sunil and Parvesh have scored at least 2 tackle points each, Gujarat have won 3 and lost just once. That lone loss was a narrow defeat to Bengal Warriors in the final raid of the match. But in the other two scenarios where either one defender has done well or both have failed, Gujarat have won just once in 7 matches.
