PKL 2021: U Mumba v/s Telugu Titans – Preview, Expected 7, Live Streaming, Players to Watch out, Head to Head, Key Battle
All you need to know match 42 of PKL 2021 between U Mumba and Telugu Titans.
Old foes U Mumba and Telugu Titans will face off against each other in match 41 of PKL 2021. Both the teams have had their fair share of struggles this season, but Mumba has managed to handle it better and are in a comfortable position for now.
The U Mumba have lost just one game so far in this season, but they have drawn a whopping 3 out of six. With three draws in their last four games, the onus will be on Fazel Atrachali and their boys to deliver against a struggling Telugu Titans.
The Titans, on the other hand, are the only team yet to register a win in PKL 2021 and are the wooden spoon holders for now. The injury to Siddharth Desai has meant that youngsters Ankit Beniwal and Rajnish have starred on various occasions, but the inconsistency of their captain Rohit Kumar and their defensive unit is hurting them badly.
Head to Head
U Mumba has a slight edge when it comes to the head to head encounters between the two sides. In fact, the last time the Titans won against the Mumbai-based franchise was way back in 2017.
