Global Esports has had a spotless run till now in VCC India Qualifier #2, they have dropped just one map against T69. The team is counted among the top 2 teams in India. With Velocity Gaming already qualified, GE is looking very comfortable.

Team XO is is the previous Samurai Esports plus Ghost. The addition of Ghost has only added to the enormous fire power the team already had. Team XO was looking good today against Enigma Gaming. The good news for the team is that Excali, their primary duelist, is in red-hot form.

The Matchup: Global Esports vs Team XO in VCC India Qualifier #2

It's going to be the first match between these two teams tomorrow. However, the matchup between Samurai Esports (Psy, Excali, Blackhawk, Whimp) and Global Esports has been lopsided statistically. Global Esports had defeated the team in all four previous matchups.

The numbers in this case are deceptive though. If you look closely, Samurai Esports had given a tough competition to Global Esports in most of the maps.

Global Esports vs Team XO: Players to watch out for

Both the teams have stars of Indian Valorant. But if I had to make a team of 5 from among the 10 total players (solely on the basis their current individual performance), I would choose: SKRossi and Excali (of course), Lighteningfast, Ghost, and HellrangeR. These are the players to watch out for in the finals tomorrow.
