A comprehensive loss for U Mumba against Dabang Delhi K.C. continued its pattern of inconsistency. The side needs to find a way to win more than one match in a row otherwise it is going to stay stuck in the middle of the PKL table.
We really think U Mumba has an excellent opportunity to get a win against the Jaipur Pink panthers in this match. Fazel Atrachali and Surinder Singh are going to be aware of the trouble that Deepak Niwas Hooda has been having recently and will come at him hard.
These two are among the finest defenders and are not going to give any points away easily. The fact that Sandeep Narwal also picked up his first high-5 in the previous match is very encouraging going into this contest.
The offense for U Mumba has been poor but that could be down to their tactics as well. Abhishek Singh and Athul MS are the two best raiders in U Mumba and need to be given a prolonged run. They will have a tough challenge against Sandeep Dhull but have the talent to come out winners.
Jaipur Pink Panthers
Deepak Niwas Hooda carried the Jaipur Pink Panthers on his back and that is apparent in their recent run of matches. As the raid points have dried up for Deepak Niwas Hooda, the victories for the Jaipur Pink Panthers have stopped coming.
Countering the strong U Mumba defense is not going to be easy for Deepak Niwas Hooda or Ajinkya Pawar. Thankfully for the Jaipur Pink Panthers, their defense has been among the best this season.
Sandeep Dhull, Nitin Rawal, and the others are going to be very hard to get past. Their contest against U Mumba’s raiders is going to be very interesting and will decide the fate of the match.
Six wins from seven matches to start PKL 2019 was fantastic for the Jaipur Pink Panthers but they have now lost three out of their last four matches. Interestingly, no team has score more Do or Die points than the Jaipur Pink Panthers who have 43 to their name. U Mumba is just one behind with 42 to its name.
We think U Mumba is going to be able to win this match thanks to its superior defense and a raiding unit that can be good enough to get it the necessary points on its day.
Bet on U Mumba to win.
