Hosts U Mumba leaped over to the 4th spot in the final standings with a win over their arch rivals Puneri Paltan yesterday and would be looking to cement their place in the top 4 for their record 4th semi-final appearance. Their star raider and leader Anup Kumar was seen in his old avatar as he gathered a whopping total of 11 points(9 raid points and 2 tackle points) against the Paltans to secure U Mumba’s perfect home record(12 wins, 1 draw,) in the PKL history.
But they face a difficult opponent in Rahul Chaudhari led Telugu Titans side who got the better of the Mumbai-based franchise’ in their last encounter played at the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium, Hyderabad. Nilesh Salunke and Rahul Chaudhari both starred for the Titans, gathering a mammoth total of 8 raid points each to down the Mumba’s 35-30 in a closely contested contest. The Titans currently sit in 2nd place in the final standings with a chance to claim top spot with a win against the season 2 champions tonight!
The two sides have met each other on 7 occasions, with both the powerhouses winning the contest on 3 occasions while drawing one.
Players to watch out for:
U Mumba: Rakesh Kumar, Anup Kumar
Telugu Titans: Rahul Chaudhari, Nilesh Salunke
Head to Head
Played – 7, U Mumba – 3, Telugu Titans – 3, Draw – 1
U Mumba – Won 34-31 against Puneri Paltan, Match 43
Telugu Titans – Won 36-28 against Dabang Delhi, Match 41
U Mumba – Anup Kumar and Rishank Devadiga will be up against Sandeep Dhull, Sandeep Narwal and Jasmer Singh as both are right side raiders. They should switch to Plan 'B' of chasing Sandeep Narwal that means Sandeep Narwal often plays at the right corner position, so approach him with left raiders Rakesh Kumar and Suresu Kumar.
Telugu Titans – Titans chief destructor Rahul Chaudhari can raid from both sides of the mat. Anup Kumar was playing as a left corner yesterday against Puneri Paltan and if he does the same tonight then despite the fact that Mumba's right cover Surjeet is in good form, Rahul should raid from the right side and try to keep Anup away from the game.
