U Mumba beat the Fortune Giants 32-20 when both these sides met earlier this season and with U Mumba coming off a 39-36 win over UP Yoddha, one can expect the Fazel Atrachali-led side to give last year's finalists a stiff challenge.
The Fortune Giants, meanwhile, will come into this contest on the back of a 28-28 tie with the Jaipur Pink Panthers and will be keen on picking up a win that will strengthen their chances of finishing in the top 6.
Team News- U Mumba
U Mumba put up a pretty convincing show against the Yoddha as Abhishek Singh and Arjun Deshwal did a pretty good job in the raiding department. In defense, Surinder Singh was very good with six tackle points as Fazel Atrachali and Harendra Kumar had a decent outing as well. Athul MS had a bad night but should retain his place in the side.
Predicted Starting 7: Fazel Atrachali (C), Sandeep Narwal, Surinder Singh, Harendra Kumar, Arjun Deshwal, Athul MS and Abhishek Singh.
Team News- Gujarat Fortune Giants
Contributions from all the players on the night propelled Gujarat to come from behind and level scores against the Tamil Thalaivas as Sachin Tanwar led the raid points tally while Parvesh Bhainswal led the defenders' charts with a High 5. With all players barring right corner Ruturaj Koravi having a good game, Gujarat are unlikely to tinker with their starting 7.
Predicted Starting 7: Sunil Kumar (C), Parvesh Bhainswal, More GB, Rohit Gulia, Pankaj, Ruturaj Koravi and Sachin Tanwar.
Players to watch out for
U Mumba - Arjun Deshwal: The youngster has been brilliant this season although he hasn't achieved as per his full potential and could easily have scored more raid points. He will be tested by a strong Gujarat defense and can be backed to bring his best on to the mat in this game.
Gujarat - Sunil Kumar: Gujarat's skipper has been the side's best player this season along with Rohit Gulia and will be key in stopping the young U Mumba raiders.
