Welcome to one of the greatest rivalries of the league as the Pirates take on U Mumba once again this season. Both these teams are full o characters. Their styles are unique and contrasting but they set the mat on fire whenever they clash. The Patna Pirates have recovered well from various setbacks in this tournament and lead the points table after playing 16 games. They have been proactive and dynamic in their approach which makes them very dangerous.
All through the season U Mumba played safe as they 5 tie results in their 16 matches. They have won just 2 of their last 5 games and look a bit stuck as they are not able to maintain the consistency. That is the reason they have been moving between the 5th and 7th position in the points table and never made it to the top 3.
Abhishek and Ajith are the top raiders for U Mumba, while the Pirates has the trio of Monu Goyat, Prashanth Rai and Sachin Tanwar. These sides clashed last month as the Pirates looted U Mumba and won that game by 20 points. This will be another entertaining encounter as the traditional rivals are at the crossroads once again in this tournament.
U Mumba has under-performed this season. They started off well but due to their defense heavy tactics they failed to earn raid points which are the most crucial component for a good kabaddi harvest. They have been playing in safe mode as they have tied 5 out of their 16 games. Their best position in the points t able has been 5th as they currently stand at the 6th position with 48 points. Their squad is also designed for the safe mode strategy due to which raiders Abhishek and Ajith have been burdened with earning raid points throughout the season. This may just prove to be the thorn in their flesh.
They have won 3 out of their last 5 games as they beat the Tamil Thalaiva by just 2 points. Even in this encounter, they were keen on a tie but fortunately they won due to the unforced errors of the opposition.
U Mumba has executed 242 successful team raids and 146 successful team tackles in 16 games. They have also inflicted 20 all-outs while conceding 16.
While their earnings through team raid points have been a bit low they have conceded 524 team points in all. They lost to the Pirates by 20 points in their last meeting.
Defender Rinku has been their best performing player while Sultan Fazel Attrachali has been inspirational but broke. Other defenders need to improve their consistency as they will be responsible for hunting down Pirates like Sachin Tanwar, Prashanth Rai and Ghuman Singh.
Mumba needs to win all their remaining games to give them an edge if they qualify for the knock-outs.
The Patna Pirates are the king’s of the mat as they sit comfortably on top of the points table after 16 games with 80 points. They have won 11 of these 16 games and have also completed a hat-trick of victories post their recovery from Covid. It’s a dream come true for the Pirates as they rule the mat with their brand of kabaddi.
Monu Goyat’s fitness is of prime concern as he could not play in the last game. But the Pirates have a vibrant and diverse team as they are unbeatable in their raids or their defence. Raiders Sachin Tanwar and Prashanth Rai have got great support from youngsters like Ghuman Singh who scored 7 points against the Bengal Warriors in the last game. Their biggest asset is their defence which guards all their treasures very dearly. Left corner Mohammedreza has been devastating with his crocodile ankle holds while defenders Neeraj Kumar and Sajin have bull-dozed raiders out of the mat. Such is the terror of these defenders that opposition raiders are circumspect while raiding.
Mohammedreza has conducted 54 successful tackles including 6 High 5’s.
The Pirates loose guard once in a while and that is the only way one can beat them. They lost to the Jaipur Pink Panthers earlier in the week and the Pirates will be careful about such breakdowns. They will be looking forward to squeeze the Mumba raiders and stop them from earning too may raid points. It will be interesting to see if Monu Goyat is completely fit and can he play this game.
Get set for a rowdy street brawl between traditional rivals.
Welcome to one of the most sought after games in Pro Kabaddi as the Pirates take on U Mumba. Mumba has been off-colour as they have not dominated their opponents. They are still working out ways to win games and this may a bit too late for them. They lost to the Pirates in their last game and they are aware of the strength of their opponents. The Mumba defence will have to work overtime so that they do not concede too many points. If they keep the Pirates hungry for points, they will be able to create panic the Pirate camp. The Patna Pirates will be high on confidence as they have found the right combination on the mat. All their players are contributing and they would like to win this match so as to warm themselves for the knock-outs.
The Patna raiders will have to be careful of Sultan Attrachali as he may just hunt their important raiders. This will be a delicious encounter where we may be able to see the fiercest contest of this season.
Patna Pirates will win.
