Zone A - Gujarat is still going strong and how? They are increasing the gap between themselves and the team second on the table - Haryana - by eight points. Now as the days to the next level are decreasing, every point matters. This is the time to bring on their best and ensure that it lasts until the finals. You do not want anyone telling you that you peaked too soon, do you?
