Tamil Thalaiva and U Mumba are quite similar in many aspects. Both teams have immense potential, both teams are yet to find their true calling and both teams are highly unpredictable.
Tamil Thalaiva is yet to get over the loss of Pawan Sehrawat. In his absence, they gave a tough fight to Haryana Steelers and lost a low-scoring game by 5 points. Their defense was impressive as captain right corner Sagar led the charge. But raiders Ajinkya Pawar and Narender could not match the expertise of Pawan Sehrawat.
U Mumba displayed a lot of courage as they overcame an erratic UP Yodha. Mumba looked exuberant and lethal as they trapped Pardeep Narwal and Surender Gill and created panic among the Yodha defense. Captain Surender Singh was sharp and deadly with his blocks.
This will be a close and low-scoring encounter.
After being forced to settle for a TIE against the Fortune Giants, fans expected the Thalaiva to bounce back. But a freak injury to star raider Pawan Sehravat further dented their hopes of making a comeback. Thalaiva went down fighting to Haryana Steelers in a low scoring game. Pawan’s absence will haunt them but the Thalaiva has to learn to survive without Pawan.
Tamil Thalaiva has a fantastic defense led by captain Sagar who is one of the top defenders of season 8. Left corner Himanshu and Sahil Gulia have given him able support in both games. Sahil Gulia has 7 successful tackles in two games as the Thalaiva defense has started displaying some daring moves.
Thalaiva scored more tackle points than raid points in their match against the Haryana Steelers. They came back sharply in the second half but could not finish the game. They will have to work on their raiding efficiency. Ajinkya Pawar, Narender, and Himanshu Singh will have to forge a partnership where they could earn together rather than depend on any one raider.
Defenders Mohit and M Abhishek have some great skills but they will need to compliment their captain so as to strike Mumba raiders.
They have beaten Mumba just once in their last 7 encounters. This is a great opportunity for them to strike the erratic Mumba defense and give their team a bit of steam in the absence of Pawan Sehrawat.
U Mumba is an unpredictable side. They lost their opening bout tamely to Dabang Delhi by 14 points but turned it around by beating a much fancied U P Yodha in their second game. This win will surely motivate a young side that is learning to play some fearless kabaddi.
Captain Surender Singh is the key to their success. He has been inconsistent over the years but once he gets in the groove, it is quite impossible to get past him. He displayed the right attitude in the second match as he blocked and trapped opposition raiders with class.
Raider Ghuman Singh is a smooth operator who along with Jai Bhagwan and Ashish can work wonders. It was the U Mumba defense that weaved their magic around the Yodha as they earned 13 tackle points rendering Pardeep Narwal and Surender Gill toothless.
The most important aspect of that win is that it reinvigorated the Mumba team and instilled self-belief in them. They have their defense sorted and it's time that they start working on the earnings via the raids.
Defenders Harender, Rinku, and left corner Kiran Magar supported Surender Singh efficiently in the last game. Mumba will need to continue this even though they may just go back to becoming a defense-heavy team.
They enjoy a comfortable record over the Thalaiva as they have beaten them 5 times in their last 7 encounters. If Mumba can exploit the absence of Pawan, they can push the Thalaiva into the abyss.
Tamil Thalaiva and U Mumba are sailing in the same boat. The moment it is rocked, they falter. Thalaiva will have to depend heavily on their defense in order to stop U Mumba. Captain Sagar will be the key to their success. Left corner Himanshu Gulia has been particularly lethal and he will be expected to trap the Mumba raiders.
Mumba will have to repeat what they did to U P Yodha. Captain Surender Singh will be the key for them as he seems to have picked up some form. Raider Jai Bhagwan has been impressive with his acrobatic raids and this should take the pressure off Ghuman Singh.
This may be a low-scoring game as both teams will slow the pace of the game. Both teams will be in a defensive mode, probably playing on the Do orDie raids through the match.
U Mumba will win.
