In Match 34 of Pro Kabaddi 2019, Gujarat Fortunegiants will take on Tamil Thalaivas at the Eka arena in Ahmedabad on Saturday. It will be a battle between the raider-heavy Thalaiavas and PKL's top defenders, Fortunegiants. However, Gujarat’s raiding unit has performed consistently despite the team's losses. Their average raid points per match of 17.6 has been the fourth best for a raid unit in Pro Kabaddi 2019. On the other hand, Tamil Thalaivas are again relying on Rahul Chaudhari to lead the raiding unit after Ajay Thakur failed to score the crucial raid points.
