There are very few weaknesses to look for in the U Mumba side. They have been blessed to have a trio of raiders that are performing brilliantly in game after game. Siddharth Desai, Abhishek Singh, and Rohit Baliyan have been superb for U Mumba this season. These three ensure that the attack on opposing defenses is relentless and does not give them a moment to breathe.
Siddharth Desai has 4 Super-10’s in five games and has a total of 66 points to his name. He very nearly led his side to victory with 15 points against Puneri Paltan. Containing him on the offensive side is going to be the biggest task for the Telugu Titans.
As far as the U Mumba defense goes, skipper Fazal Atrachali with 19 tackle points to his name is leading from the front. Along with the experienced Dharmraj Cheralathan, Fazal will try and ensure that the Telugu raiders do not have any room to breathe on the mat.
The Telugu Titans are sitting at the top of Zone B at the moment but they know they have a tough test ahead of them. Their own defense has been rock solid this season but they will be pushed to the limit by a relentless attacking u Mumba unit.
Vishal Bhardwaj, captain of the Telugu Titans, has been leading the defense with support from Abozar Mohajermighani. The contest between Fazal and Abozar will be one to watch as both Iranian internationals look to stamp their authority on the match.
The star of the offense has been Rahul Chaudhari who has enough experience and nous to be able to provide the crucial points to his side. Both these sides are in good form and have been winning in contrasting fashion.
U Mumba believes it can open up any defense thanks to its supreme attacking prowess while the Telugu Titans believe they are impregnable.
Matches between U Mumba and Telugu Titans have been historically very close. 9 matches have seen the Telugu Titans win 4, U Mumba 3, and two of the matches ended in ties. There is no historical period of domination for one side over the other in Pro Kabaddi so far.
We believe that the format of Pro Kabaddi rewards attacking play and that is where U Mumba has an advantage. It helps that U Mumba also has a strong defense to round things out nicely.
Back U Mumba to win.
