PKL 2021: Tamil Thalaivas 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 number 15 of PKL between Tamil Thalaivas and U Mumba.
U Mumba suffered a loss against Dabang Delhi in their last fixture after having a memorable opening game in PKL 2021. They will be facing Tamil Thalaivas who are yet to register their first win of the season eight campaign. So let's have a look at the forthcoming clash between two classic rivals Tamil Thalaivas and U Mumba.
U Mumba raiders tried their best to revive themselves from the tangle created by defenders in the last game. Sultan Fazel Atrachali's form has been the main concern for Subramanian Rajaguru. The U Mumba captain has managed to complete only one successful tackle from two matches of this season. U Mumba defence revolves around their Iranian leader and management has expectations from him to lead the team from the front.
The Thalaivas, on the other hand, were in a winning position but were held to a draw by the Telugu Titans in their first game. After scoring a Super 10 in the first match, their star raider Manjeet looked completely off-colour against Bengaluru Bulls as they failed to pocket even a single point from that encounter. Their second raider K Prapanjan too has failed to deliver further increasing their woes.
Head to Head
U Mumba has been dominant against the Chennai-based franchise since the inception of this rivalry. Tamil Thalaivas failed to stop the orange banner in both attempts from last season. Vigilant Thalaivas are preparing to halt the three-match winning streak of U Mumba over them.
Overall H2H record:
5 - Matches

Abhishek Singh vs Surjeet
The sudden rise of Abhishek Singh has been marvellous as he became a star raider from low-key in no time. The UP-based raider has 24 raid points from season eight so far. Abhishek will be in a mini-battle with legendary cover defender Surjeet who is known for hunting the best opposition raider. Surjeet has seven tackle points from the last two matches and is eager to lead Thalaivas in the first victory of this season
