Bengal Warriors vs U Mumba Match Prediction: Who will win today's Pro Kabaddi 2017 match?
In the fifth home match for the Bengal Warriors they will be clashing against U Mumba as a part of the Inter Zone Challenge Week at the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Indoor Stadium in Kolkata.
Both teams are coming off contrasting results from their previous encounters, the Bengal Warriors' unbeaten run at home was halted last night against the Haryana Steelers while U Mumba defeated the Jaipur Pink Panthers in their last match in the Mumbai leg.
The Warriors have looked like a tough and challenging side, led from the front by skipper Surjeet who has become a force to reckon with playing in the capacity of a cover defender. He has been supported in his task by defensive all-rounders, Ram Singh and Srikanth Tewthia who man either corner on the mat.
Vinod Kumar is making his presence felt with some valuable points in the attack as well as the defence according to the demand of the situation. As far as the raid department is concerned, the responsibility is shouldered by Maninder Singh, who scored a massive 14 points in the match last night alongside Korean recruit, Jang Kun Lee who has put forth consistent performances.
U Mumba, on the other hand, have struggled quite a bit to get the best starting seven on the mat and embark on a long winning run but have not managed to do so until now. Skipper Anup Kumar has been leading his troops effectively well, trying to extract the best possible results out of each individual on the mat.
Kashiling Adake has been in good form in the last couple of matches and will look to continue in a similar manner in the attack alongside young guns like Darshan and Srikanth Jadhav. The defence of the Mumbai franchise has been the weak link, Surinder Singh has been impressive but in bits and pieces while Kuldeep Singh and Hadi Oshtorak have also not sent across waves of authority and need to buck up in order to put a formidable show.
Bengal Warriors vs U Mumba match prediction
The Warriors certainly have an advantage going into this match primarily due to the kind of form that 4 to 5 players in the side have been in, which will easily enable them to restrict U Mumba. Maninder Singh and Jang Kun Lee will most likely go rampant against the rival defence which does not boast of brute strength and might.
