Both teams are unbeaten in their recent five fixtures. Pirates are one of the most balanced sides on the mat this season. whereas the underdog roster of U Mumba outplayed many top teams in this campaign. Hence Subramanian Rajaguru and Ram Mehar Singh may not consider any changes to the winning combination.
