Today’s PKL Match Prediction
U Mumba are slowly and steadily climbing up the table. However, they have only one win in their last five games. They are dependent on Abhishek and Fazal Atrachali.
They will have to perform as a unit if they want to beat the table toppers Bengaluru Bulls.
After two agonizingly close games, the Bengaluru Bulls finally managed to return to winning ways. Pawan continues to lead the raiding department. Bharat has impressed as well.
However, the Bulls cannot rely on Pawan. An experienced Deepak Narwal will have to shoulder responsibility.
The defense, led by Saurabh Nandal, has been good for the most part. But silly errors have hurt them and they need to work on the same. The Bulls start as favorites to consolidate their place at the top of the table.
Prediction: Bengaluru Bulls to beat U Mumba and win this encounter.
