LIVE COMMENTARY: U Mumba vs Haryana Steelers, 30 August 2017
U Mumba have lost 3 consecutive matches in their home leg before the last match was called off and will be eager to notch up a win against the Haryana Steelers. Skipper Aup Kumar will play a large role in the capacity of a frontline raider as well as an experienced campaigner leading the young guns on the mat.
Kashiling Adake has embarked on some kind of form and will be responsible for keeping the scoreboard ticking for the team.
Young guns like Srikanth Jadhav and Darshan will play a vital role in the team's attack while also contributing to the combination tackles. Kuldeep will be a key cog in the machine give his all-round skills while the defence will be manned by Hadi Oshtorak on one end of the mat.
As for the cover position, it is highly likely Surinder Singh will be replaced by some other defender owing to a string of poor performances on the mat.
Haryana Steelers, on the other hand, are coming into this match on the back of a 2-point win against Dabang Delhi. The team stronghold is the Indian defensive corner duo of Mohit Chhillar and Surender Nada who have been lethal as a combination since the inception of the league.
The other bright spark has been the raiding unit spearheaded by young star Vikas Khandola who is supported in the attack by Deepak Dahiya and Surjeet Singh. The rest of the squad comprises of two other defenders in the likes of Rakesh Singh Kumar and Neeraj Kumar who have been quite decent with their performances on the mat.
U Mumba vs Haryana Steelers match prediction
If one has to call the game, it would be in the favour of the Haryana Steelers for the team has been evenly balanced in terms of both attack and defence while U Mumba's defence has been the weak link for the side.
In such a scenario, raiders like Vikas, Surjeet and Deepak will find it easy to penetrate through the wall on the rival shore and fetch quick points while on the raid, a task that will not be so easy on the reverse for the Mumbai raiders.
