The city of Pune will witness a heavy meteor shower on the mat as U Mumba takes on Tamil Thalaiva. Both teams had a tough last match which they won by 2 points respectively. While U Mumba looted the Pirates, the Tamil Thalaiva denied Telegu Titans their first victory of the season. 

U Mumba looked dangerous as their raider’s wreaked havoc in the Patna camp, while the Thalaiva played smartly as they regulated the Telegu Titans raider earning to win the match. U Mumba has a set of young raiders who have complemented each other. Even though Guman Singh is yet to fire, all-rounder’s Visvanath and Iranian Zafardanesh scored 21 raid points between them. 

The Thalaiva had captain Sagar and left corner Sahil Gulia take the steam out of their opponents. Sahil Gulia scored a Hi 5 while raider Narender Kandola scored a Super 10. Tamil Thalaiva look much better in their raiding as well as their defense as compared to U Mumba. But former champions Mumba have a better record over the Thalaiva in the PKL. This will lead to an epic battle between the youngsters of both teams.

U Mumba Preview

U Mumba has been in decent form winning 2 out of their 4 matches. They beat the Patna Pirates apart from winning their first match against the UP Yodha. Mumba has a decent trio of raiders in the form of Guman Singh, Pranay Rane and Shivam. But their all-rounders Visvanath and Iranian Zafardanesh have done better than their regular raiders. Zafardanesh has earned 36 raid points in 4 matches hence coach Gholamreza has entrusted him with earning maximum points.

Unfortunately, U Mumba has had bouts of low intensity which leads them to fail at crucial moments. Their defense is yet to pick up pace which puts a lot of pressure on their raiders. They were trailing against the Pirates at half-time with just 1 tackle points to their credit. It was Zafardanesh and Visvanath who executed some daring raids in the first 10 minutes of the second half which resulted in Mumba running away with the match.

But U Mumba still has to find some solutions for their fragile defense. Captain Surinder Singh has been inaccurate with his tackles. Their corners are also not performing as expected. Right corner Rinku Singh and left corner Sombir have leaked more points than they have earned. This will be the biggest challenge for Mumba as they take on the Tamil Thalaiva. Due to these defensive lapses, U Mumba lost a close game to arch-rivals Gujarat Giants and later the Puneri Paltan thrashe them.

Mumba has a better record against the Thalaiva as they have won 6 out of their 9 encounters. But the Thalaiva can be a tricky customer as their young raiders and defenders are in much better form than U Mumba. Hence this will be a difficult match for the former champions as they will struggle throughout the match.

Tamil Thalaivas Preview

One of the most vibrant sides of the league, Tamil Thalaiva has enhanced its game since season 9. Their dedicated fans were always left high and dry over the years. But off late the Thalaiva has started roaring even against bigger teams. The biggest reason for this turn-around is their defense as well as the young raiding party of Narender Kandola and Ajinkya Pawar. Captain Sagar has been one of the best defenders on the circuit while defender Sahil Gulia has brought the sharpness that the Thalaiva was missing. 

Sahil Gulia has executed 11 successful tackles in 3 matches. He scored 7 tackle pointsi n 6 tackles to stun the Telegu Titans. Defenders M Abhishek and left cover Mohit too have been scratchy but useful. The Thalaiva has also tried using multiple raiders in their matches. Apart from Narender Kandola and Ajinkya Pawar they have used the services of raiders Jatin and Nitin Singh apart from Iranian all-rounder Bastami. 

The Thalaiva used all these players against the Telegu Titans. They led at half-time and then unleashed deadly raids in the second half. The Titans were close to recovering but the Tamil defenders did not allow them to make a come-back. This is the strategy that the Thalaiva has to employ against U Mumba who do not have a very strong defense. 

Tamil Thalaiva has a decent scoring average of 39 per match. They have conceded just 3 all-outs and inflicted 6 in 3 matches. Hence their defense has resonated through the first few weeks. Raiders Ajinkya Pawar an Narender Kandola have gathered 58 raid points together in 3 matches while defenders Sagar and Sahil Gulia have earned 17 tackle points. Other players in the team need to contribute regularly so that these 4 players can blossom further. 

The Thalaiva has a dismal record against U Mumba. They have beaten U Mumba just twice in their 9 meetings. But currently the Thalaiva is placed better than their opponents in all departments of the game. This will be an entertaining and exciting match.

The battle lines are drawn as the former champions U Mumba take on the vibrant Tamil Thalaiva. Both teams have a huge fan base and all of them will be enjoy every minute of the match.  U Mumba seems to have more problems in their team. They have a fragile defense which can leak points. Captain Surinder will commit unforced errors while right corner Rinku Singh will hunt precisely. Mumba raiders may not be able to earn too many points. Either Zafardanesh or Guman will score a Super 10. Defenders Mahendra Singh and Mohit from U Mumba will earn in the second half. 

The Tamil Thalaiva will start the match with a bang. Their raiders will loot U Mumba and the Thalaiva will lead by half-time. Defenders Sagar and Sahil Gulia will feast on the Mumba raiders. Tamil may inflict a couple of all-outs on Mumba very early into the match. This will be an entertaining match as couple of players from both teams will play aggressively thus warming up the mat. One may see some green cards being show to some of the players. Overall expect a meteor-shower of points through the match.

Tamil Thalaiva will win.
