Season 5 opens with an absolute doosra as the game will be a rapid fire 6 versus 6. With plans being changed at the last minute, a cliffhanger is on the cards with a dynamic permutation of players!
Team 1: SWAP – PIYUSH – RACHIT – VICKY – ROMY – SACHIN
Team 2: AK – BHARAT – SID – RAHUL – RAJESH – ABHI
- Reserve Players: Bobby, Nics
- Cancelled: Chirag
Logic and Explanation:
With only two regular defenders playing this week, they have been kept part as one team has The Wall, Rajesh versus the Human Dynamo, Vicky. Both teams will be pressured to find the second defender and rotation will be key in this tactical battle for the first game of the season.
Team 1 has the dribble, stamina and regular keeper plus Swappy as player of the season works symbiotically with the Sach & Piyush connection.
Team 2 has the raw power and more rotational choices plus has Rajesh who was (and still is!) the best defender of last season. Rajesh synergises well with AK as both share a telepathic connection on the pitch.
