Former champions will clash in another epic encounter of the season. Both teams have a huge fan base and both teams have a peculiar styles. U Mumba has been consistent after they found a decent team combination. The Patna Pirates had a good team but the sting was missing.

Patna Pirates have won 5 consecutive games and they look very dangerous. They beat the Haryana Steelers and the Jaipur Pink Panthers by huge margins in their last couple of games. Their improved defense has helped the raiders to play fearlessly. Sachin Tanwar and Rohit Gulia have been earning raid points consistently. Right corner Sunil and left corner Mohammedreza have added to the flavor with some deadly tackles in the last few games.

U Mumba has suddenly found self-belief. They displayed nerves of steel in their last game as they tactically handled the last few raids to ensure they beat their arch-rivals. It was a close and a tough game. Left corner Kiran Magar and defender Rinku were precise with their tackles.

Mumba will face an uphill task as they take on the in-form Patna Pirates.

Patna Pirates Preview

U Mumba is a team that has found vigor, vitality, and self-belief. They were slow to start but once they got a good team combination, they have been aggressive. After getting thrashed by the Jaipur Pink Panthers, they maintained their composure against the Puneri Paltan and had their vengeance as they beat them by a solitary point. 

This win will give them a lot of confidence as they take on the Patna Pirates who are on a 5 match-winning spree. Fortunately, U Mumba is sorted in their raiding as well as their defense. Ghuman Singh and Ashish have combined nicely to earn consistently. Coach Anil Chaprana has the options of raiders like Jai Bhagwan, Shivam, and Haiderali Ekrami. 

Even though Captain Surender Singh was not available for the last game, right corner Rinku was the stand-in captain. Rinku has been in great touch through the season. He has executed 28 successful tackles in the 10 games he has played.

U Mumba has executed 169 successful team raids while conducting 121 successful team tackles. The lack of star raiders has put a cap on their earnings but they still have managed to win games. 

Mumba has executed 15 Super tackles which prove their defensive strength.

They have inflicted 16 all-outs while conceding 14 in their 12 games. This is the leakage they need to repair. In many games, U Mumba has conceded all-outs late in the second half which has taken the game away from them. They start off aggressively but aren’t able to maintain the same efficiency in the second half. 

They cannot afford to repeat the same mistakes against the Pirates. Mumba lost to Patna Pirates in their earlier encounter this season. This was due to the fact that Patna just did not give away raid points to U Mumba. Just like the way Mumba returned the favor to the Puneri Paltan, they will be looking forward to looting the Pirates.

U Mumba Preview

The Patna Pirates have actually lived like a pirate this season. They were sent to packing by most of the teams in the first 4 games they played. Even the Telegu Titans thrashed them. But the Pirates took charge of their sinking ship, repaired it and they are back with a bang. The Pirates are on a 5 match-winning spree and look unbeatable as of now.

They have recharged themselves and the same team which looked amateur initially is taming its opponents with relative ease. What has been impressive is the margin of their victories. Even though they do not have a good bench strength of raiders, the Pirates have depended on Sachin Tanwar.

Sachin has earned 112 raid points in 12 games which includes 5 Super 10’s. It was all-rounder Rohit Gulia who was earning well in the initial games. Now both raiders have made sure that the Pirates receive a steady income of raid points. 

The Pirates have conducted 177 successful team raids out of their 508 team raids.

But the turn-around was possible only due to the improved precision of the defenders. Defender Sunil Kumar has been the stand-out performer with 31 successful tackles in the season. He has got able support from left corner Mohammedreza who has also executed 31 successful tackles in just 10 games.

The Patna Pirates have registered 7 Super raids this season.

They have conceded just 400 points in 12 games.

But they have impressed everyone with their Do or die raid conversions which have yielded them 68 DoD raid points. This has been a tactical move by the Pirates as they slow down the pace and earn DoD raid points keeping the opponents guessing. This tactic has worked wonders in close games. The Pirates beat U Mumba in a tough game earlier in the season and they will hope to repeat the same.

The excitement and the entertainment double up as teams meet for their second encounter of the season. U Mumba has looked solid while the Patna Pirates are looking unstoppable. 

U Mumba has had their ups and downs in the last few games but they have got their act together. If Surender Singh is not fit, Rinku will be the stand-in captain. Raiders Ghuman and Ashish will target the weak link in the Patna defense, i.e Neeraj Kumar and Manish. Left cover Harender Kumar will compensate for Surender’s absence. 

Raider Sachin Tanwar will score a big Super 10 for the Pirates. Left corner Mohammedreza will be lethal and he will target Ghuman Singh. All-rounder Rohit Gulia will be expected to support Sachin. But the Patna Pirates will miss an additional raider. 

This might not be a very high-scoring game as both teams will wait for the other to commit mistakes. U Mumba may find it difficult to stop the Pirates.

Patna Pirates will win.
