New entrants Gujarat Fortunegiants beat Dabang Delhi K.C. 26-20 in Match 7 Pro Kabaddi League 2017 season five at the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium in Hyderabad. Led by inspirational Sukesh Hegde, Gujarat showed great skill and confidence in their debut game against a seasoned team like Delhi. While, Delhi simply failed to repeat their performance of their last match and clearly lacked a gameplan in the tense encounter.
Delhi's R. Sriram gets the 'Perfect Raider' award, whereas, 'Player of the Match' was award to Iran's Fazel Atrachali.
