Fans will be served a tasty, spicy, and nutritious dish when the Jaipur Pink Panthers take on U Mumba. Both teams have been highly consistent and both team have been through similar experiences. Both teams have won 8 out of their 13 games and both teams have similar strengths and weaknesses.

With so many similarities, an encounter between Jaipur and Mumba will be a highly explosive one. Jaipur got the better of Mumba last week in their first clash of the season. It was a close game which Mumba lost by a margin of 3 points. The errors in their defense allowed the Pink Panthers to steal the show.

This match will be a face-off between the trio of raiders from both teams. Jaipur will hope that their raiders will overpower the Mumba defense while U Mumba will expect their defenders to trap and hunt precisely. The team which makes more unforced errors will gift this match to their opponents.

Jaipur Pink Panthers Preview

Former champions have found their mojo this season. While raider Arjun Deshwal has been their main source of income, the Pink Panthers are now faced with the prospect of looking at their bench to compensate for Rahul Chaudhary and Ajith. Both these senior raiders have done well but the long season can take a toll on any player.

Arjun Deshwal has earned 148 raid points from 120 successful raids. 

Left corner Ankush has executed 45 successful tackles which is the highest by any defender this season. Captain Sunil Kumar has added to this tally with 38 successful tackles.

This makes the Pink Panthers a very dangerous team. They have won 3 out of their last 5 games and the 2 losses came against the Bengaluru Bulls and the Patna Pirates. 

The Pink Panthers thrashed Dabang Delhi in their last game in which both Arjun and Rahul Chaudhary scored a Super 10. This was the best performance of Rahul Chaudhary this season. The introduction of Iranian defender Reza Mirbagheri worked for the Pink Panthers as he was quite innovative in his tackles. 

The Pink Panthers have performed well in all departments. 

They have conducted 220 successful team raids out of their total 538 team raids.

The Pink Panthers have executed 132 successful team tackles.

They have also notched 7 Super tackles and 7 Super raids in 13 matches.

In addition, they have inflicted 12 team all-outs which is the highest by any team.

With all these strengths, the Jaipur Pink Panthers will plan ahead for a tough game against U Mumba. It was a close match last time for the Pink Panthers and they will be fully aware of the fact that U Mumba can bounce back and sting them in this game.

U Mumba Preview

U Mumba has been impressive, tenacious, and dangerous. They have beaten the best teams on the circuit and currently are placed 4th in the points table after playing 13 games. They have relied on teamwork and strategy to surprise their opponents. They have had a blip once in a while but overall U Mumba is too hot to handle.

After 2 consecutive losses to the Patna Pirates and the Jaipur Pink Panthers, they have made a comeback by winning the next 2 games in the rivalry week. They trashed the Patna Pirates in the reverse fixture and got their revenge. They conned the Puneri Paltan in the dying moments of the match and won by just a solitary point. It was a street fight for U Mumba against their traditional rivals. They just managed to get an all-out and the right amount of tackles in the second half of that match and beat the Puneri Paltan in their own backyard.

But there are a few chinks in the armor that U Mumba needs to address. Their raiding has been top-class and consistent. But their defense has faltered on some occasions. Captain Surender Singh led the defense in the first half of the season but it is right corner Rinku who has been in charge for the last few games. 

Left cover Harender Kumar has done well in the last few games, but defenders Rahul Sethpal and Mohit need to improve their precision. These weaknesses will amplify in games against the Jaipur Pink Panthers. 

Raiders Ghuman Singh, Ashish, and Jai Bhagwan have been agile and consistent. Ghuman Singh has earned 84 raid points while Ashish has earned 64 raid points from 13 games.

Stand-in captain Rinku has executed 32 successful tackles in 11 matches.

U Mumba has notched 135 successful team tackles which are the highest by any team. This also includes 16 Super tackles. This has been the main reason for their success and consistency.

Mumba has inflicted 18 all-outs while conceding 16. They have also earned 51 DoD raid points. All these statistics prove how dangerous U Mumb can be. They will plan a heist against the Pink Panthers to avenge their earlier loss of the season.

Friction causes sparks to fly. This basic scientific aspect will be on display as the Jaipur Pink Panthers take on U Mumba. Both teams are matched in all departments. 

Jaipur Pink Panthers will hope for an aggressive start. Raiders Arjun Deshwal will lead the attack and score another Super 10. If Rahul Chaudhary is able to earn well, the Pink Panthers will win. Left corner Ankush will target Ghuman Singh while Captain Sunil Kumar will hunt down Mumba raider Ashish. Iranian defender Mirabagheri will trouble U Mumba in the first half.

U Mumba will surprise the Pink Panthers initially with unconventional moves. They will slow down the pace and expect Jaipur to panic. Left corner Kiran Magar will be aggressive and he will expect timely support from the right cover. Ghuman Singh and Ashish will earn well together. Right Corner Rinku and Harender Kumar will trouble Rahul Chaudhary and the other Jaipur raiders.

This will be a close match and the team which makes more unforced errors will lose.

U Mumba will win.
