Pro Kabaddi league Season 8, U Mumba vs Jaipur Pink Panthers: U Mumba will face Jaipur Pink Panthers in the 21st match of Pro Kabaddi League Season 8 at the Sheraton Grand Whitefield in Bengaluru on Thursday. After losing the first match, Jaipur Pink Panthers, playing under the leadership of Deepak Niwas Hooda, made a spectacular comeback and remained in the top four teams after winning two consecutive matches. U Mumba, on the other hand, won their first match of season 8 by defeating the champions of season 6 in a one-sided match but are still waiting for their second win since then.
U Mumba will have to strengthen its defense
Pro Kabaddi League Season 2 champion U Mumba’s team has not won the last two matches, their last match ended in a tie against Tamil Thalaivas. If seen, there is a lack of any big raider in the team, although Rinku Narwal, Mohsen Magasoodlu and Harendra Kumar have definitely made tackles for the team, but have never been able to do it unitedly. It is very important for the team’s biggest defender and captain Fazal Atrachali to return to form.
Arjun Deshwal and Deepak Hooda continue their great form
On the other hand, the team of Jaipur Pink Panthers is very excited after winning both the last matches. With the victory in this match, he would like to complete his hat-trick of victory, although this task will not be so easy. The good thing is that the team is not dependent on any one raider or defender. Two raiders of the team are included in the list of top 10 raiders of this season. Arjun Deshwal has got 32 raid points in three matches, while captain Deepak Niwas Hooda has won 20 raid points.
The defense of the team has so far depended on Shaul Kumar and Nitin Rawal. Pink Panthers need to strengthen their defense further. If seen, this match is going to be Mumba’s defense vs Jaipur’s raid. To win the match, Mumba will first have to find the break of Arjun Deshwal and Deepak Hooda. Both the teams have faced each other 17 times so far and 9 matches have been in the name of Mumba, while 6 matches have been won by Pink Panthers, two matches have ended in a draw.
