Pro Kabaddi: Puneri Paltan v/s U Mumba– Preview, Expected 7, Live Streaming, Players to Watch out, Head to Head, Key Battle
All you need to know about match 89 of PKL 2021 between Puneri Paltan and U Mumba.
The second Maharashtra derby of PKL 2021 and the only question is will the Puneri Paltan be able to maintain their new-found momentum and complete a double over U Mumba?
After a horror start to the season the Paltan finally seem to have found some momentum, registering 3 consecutive wins. The consistency of their young raiding duo of Aslam and Mohit, combined with the calm presence of Nitin Tomar on the court has done wonders for them in recent times.
U Mumba, on the other hand, continue to be inconsistent. They have tied two, won two and lost one of their previous five encounters. They did look in a good position with Abhishek finding some consistency, but his failure in their last match meant that they conceded it without a fight. While captain Fazel continues his struggles this season, Ajith V has not been able to display anything noteworthy since returning from injury.
Head to Head
The U Mumba have an edge over the Puneri Paltan in head to head encounters, but they were handed a big loss by the Paltan in their last meeting earlier this season.
