Telegu Titans almost upset U Mumba in their last game which was a high scoring one. Mumba held their nerves to win that game and move to the third spot in the points table. This game brought out the mature side of U Mumba who regulated the game efficiently.
3-time champions Patna Pirates have had the worst season in their entire PKL journey. They are placed 11th in the points table after playing 9 games. They faltered very early and since then the Pirates haven’t really shown signs of recovery. Though they did beat Dabang Delhi, they have a long way to go. They have not lost any of their last 4 games and this is a good sign.
But U Mumba will be a tricky chapter for the Pirates. U Mumba has created a wonderful combination of young raiders and experienced defenders. Coach Anil Chaprana has found what works for his team and Mumba will unleash itself on the Pirates. This will be the most challenging match for the Patna Pirates.
Fans of Patna Pirates are still recovering from the shock of watching their team struggling to win games. That shock was reduced a bit when the Patna Pirates beat the defending champions. Since then the Pirates have looked like their old self. The Pirates are yet to face their toughest challenge of the tournament, their contest with U Mumba.
Patna Pirates forced a TIE against the Bengaluru Bulls and that gave them a lot of self-belief. They went on to beat the UP Yodha followed by a win over the Gujarat Fortune Giants. In all these games, it was their defense that blossomed.
Defenders Manish and left corner Mohammedreza struck gold against the Bulls.
Captain Neeraj Kumar was at his best against the UP Yodha.
Defender Sunil and 3rd raider Monu added to the woes of the Fortune Giants.
Apart from the defense, all-rounder, Rohit Gulia has been at his best with contributions in raids as well as tackles. This has also helped raider Sachin Tanwar get back into rhythm.
The Pirates have executed just 137 successful team raids out of their total 377 team raids. The Patna Pirates need to improve on this number. They have executed just 74 successful team tackles which haven’t allowed them to dominate and win games.
Unfortunately, the Pirates do not enjoy a great record over U Mumba. They have won just 6 out of their 16 outings against Mumba. The Pirates will be wary of the fact that U Mumba has been dominating their opponents in the past few games. The only way the Pirates can execute the heist against Mumba is by deceiving their defense and creating panic in their camp. This can be done only by Sachin “Jack Sparrow” Tanwar.
U Mumba had a scare in their last game as they were almost toppled by the Telegu Titans. But Mumba displayed a lot of grit and maturity to win the game by a margin of just 3 points. These characteristics were missing from the Mumba camp. They seem to have learned it the hard way, but all their hard work is paying off as they have moved to the 3rd spot in the points table after playing 9 games. They have won 6 games accumulating 31 points.
This has been the most impressive season for Mumba in the last few years. Their defense has woken up to the challenge while new coach Anil Chaprana has intelligently cultivated an army of raiders. He used the combination of Ghuman Singh and Jai Bhagwan in the initial games. Later he introduced raider Ashish and Iranian Haiderali Ekrami which paid dividends. In the last game, he sprung a surprise by introducing young raider Pranay Rane who impressed everyone by earning 6 points.
This move has kept the opponents guessing which has helped U Mumba win its last 3 games. They faltered against the Bengaluru Bulls but since then Mumba has dominated the proceedings.
Captain Surender Singh is at his best currently while left corner Mohit has lent his support to the precise hunting. Defenders Rinku Narwal and Harender too have contributed in the last few games, thus giving a lethal edge to the Mumba defense.
They will be up against a struggling Patna Pirates. U Mumba has an impressive record against the Pirates as they have won 9 out of their 16 games. Though Mumba could not beat them in their 2 meetings in season 8, they will be very confident of taking on the Pirates considering the way Mumba has performed in the last few games. U Mumba is a team that needs momentum.
They have become unpredictable thus making it difficult for their opponents to decode them.
The festivities and fireworks will continue as U Mumba takes on the Patna Pirates.
The Pirates have a lot of weaknesses that were exposed very early. Their defense was in shambles and it took them 5 games to register their first win of the season. But with left corner Mohammedreza back in the squad, the Pirates have got their deception. Captain Neeraj Kumar will be the key to tackling the Mumba raiders. Defenders Manish and Sunil will trouble U Mumba throughout the match.
U Mumba will once again unleash unknown young raiders and surprise the Pirates. Captain Surender Singh will capture Rohit Gulia thus making it difficult for the Pirates to earn. Left corner Mohit will trouble Pirate raider Sachin while Heidarali Ekrami will be the highest-scoring raider for Mumba.
This match will be highly entertaining, tense, and path-breaking. Patna Pirates will be pushed to the wall as U Mumba start as favorites.
U Mumba will win.
