A good start is work half done. U Mumba ticked all the right boxes at the beginning of the season and look like a well-oiled unit. Super raids from Abhishek, Super Tackle’s, all out’s were all serve hot in their first game. The most important aspect of their game was the solid defence of Rinku and Harendra who combined with utmost efficiency in the right corner. 

Fazel Attrachali leads the side from his left corner position in the most clinical fashion.  He has the knack for inspiring his team and getting the best out of them. The only worry is the backup raider if in case Abhishek has a bad day at the office. 

Naveen Kumar will be the star attraction for Dabang Delhi along with veterans like Ajay Thakur and Jeeva Kumar. Joginder Narwal and Manjit Chillar are the added flavours. A lot will depend on how their defence takes care of the rampaging Abhishek and can the Dabang raiders slip through the traps laid by the Mumba defenders.

U Mumba Preview

It was a dream start for U Mumba in the opening game of the PKL. In the very first minute of the match, they made their intentions very clear. Though Pawan Sehrawat scored a bonus and U Mumba got the better of him. In the next 7 minutes, Abhishek scored 5 raid points and also inflicted an all out on the Bulls. Such was the pace set by U Mumba. Captain Fezal Attrachali guides his troops from the left corner and he looks in a great rhythm. Abhishek has already displayed the “lion jump” in the first encounter and with 13 super raids to his name, he will lead the attack for U Mumba. 

U Mumba inflicted 3 massive all out’s in their first match, with a pinch of super raids and garnishing with super tackle’s

Their strength is their defence and their quick counterattacks. Defenders Rinky, Harendra have formed a decent right corner cover combination. Ajith Kumar has shown some good raiding skills. Former Mumba player and now the head coach Rajguru Subramanian will be very happy with his teams opening game.


● 107 super tackles and 181 all outs inflicted till now. 

● Hat trick of all out’s in their first match itself.

● Super Raider Abhishek scored a massive super 10 in his first match of the season.

● Defence is strong, fluid and impregnable.

Dabang Delhi K.C. Preview

Delhi Dabang was known to be a team that would finish 6th to 8th in the first few seasons. That was due to inconsistency, team combination and lack of a star raider. They surprised everyone in last season with their flawless performance, attacking game and supreme team combinations. Heavily dependent on their defence, the Dabangs came up with their trump card Naveen Kumar who continued his good form of seasons 6 and 7. Young turk Naveen blasted the opposition through the season with 319 raid points including 21 successive super 10’s. 

But now it’s the real test of character for the Dabangs. Veteran Ajay Thakur, Jeeva Kumar, Joginder Narwal and Manjit Chillar will have to play bigger roles to guide the juniors and use their experience to alter the pace of the game. They will have to get good Corner Cover combinations going on as U Mumba raiders have stolen bonus points regularly. Also, a lean and strong Abhishek raiding efficiently will test the defence with its skills. If their raiders don’t work, Dabang will have to slow down the game and play a miserly game.

● Overall 980 raid points and 214 successful raids till season 7.

● Need an able replacement at corners this season.

● Have specialist in executing all outs regularly.

● Naveen Kumar will spearhead the raiding for the Dabangs.

U Mumba have done something unimaginable by inflicting three all outs in their first encounter. Their trailblazers have been Abhishek the super raider and Sahil Singh in the right corner. Add to this deadly combo is the cool captain Fazel Attrachali who maneuvers the game efficiently. 

Dabang Delhi are highly dependent on Naveen to earn raiding points. Last season their defence was exemplary, but this time they will have to get into the groove very early.

If Dabangs concede an early lead to U Mumba, it will be difficult for them to come back in the game. Check our list of the best betting apps in India to place your bets with!
