Match Analysis

Haryana Steelers Team Preparations

Haryana Steelers was a PKL team formed in 2017. It was one of the four teams that were formed in the year as the development of the Professional Kabaddi League. It started off well be reaching the playoffs as they finished 3rd in the zone A. The coach Rambir Khokhar has obviously done a great job with the team as the boys from Sonepat will be looking to go a step further this year. They have bought some expensive players to build a strong defensive lineup led by the skilled Surendra Neda. The team boasts of the most expensive player of the league in Monu Goyat. The team spent almost 40% of their money on getting him. They lack the experience apart from him and Shingade though.

U Mumba Team Preparations

U Mumba made a great start to the PKL with the captain Anup Kumar leading them to three consecutive finals in the first three PKL seasons. However, this year the 34 years old players have switched to Jaipur and as a result, the Mumbai team will play without him for the first time. The captainship has been given to Fazel Atrachali the Iranian defender. He was the most expensive player for the Mumbai as they bought him for the hefty sum of Rs 1 crore. Abhishek Singh and Dharmaraj Cheraltham were some of the players that made some noise at the auctions. They have an experienced and good coach in Mazandarani who replaced Bhaskaran to become the first ever foreign coach in KPL.

Key stat

U Mumba has done poorly in the last two seasons. That to my mind will way on their minds at the start of the new season.

Verdict

Verdict

Mumbai have not had a good seasons 4 and 5. And as a result will not be ready mentally to take on the star-studded Haryana this early in the season. But these games get awfully close and there is nothing much in it. But I will go with Haryana on this one.
