Team News- U Mumba
Abhishek Singh continued his good run for U Mumba with some support from Athul MS as the duo racked up 16 raid points between them. In defence, Fazel Atrachali was the pick of the lot while Harendra Kumar and Sandeep Narwal had a decent night. Surinder Singh had a bad game and so did Dong Geon Lee, and the South Korean is likely to be replaced by Rohit Baliyan.
Predicted Starting 7: Fazel Atrachali (C), Sandeep Narwal, Surinder Singh, Harendra Kumar, Dong Geon Lee/Rohit Baliyan, Athul MS and Abhishek Singh.
Team News- Patna Pirates
Pardeep was at his best yet again but his team wasn't as Patna lost despite Pardeep scoring 19 raid points. Jang Kun Lee did a decent job, supporting him by notching up 7 raid points but none of the other players could make an impact.
Monu continued his woeful run as he failed to pick up a point while Jaideep and Neeraj Kumar leaked points with too many unnecessary tackles. Vikas Jaglan fared slightly better while even Hadi Oshtorak endured a tough game. Jawahar Dagar could replace Jaideep for this match.
Predicted Starting 7: Pardeep Narwal (C), Jang Kun Lee, Monu, Neeraj Kumar, Jaideep/ Jawahar Dagar, Hadi Oshtorak and Vikas Jaglan.

Raiders: Abhishek Singh, Athul MS, Pardeep Narwal, Rohit Baliyan, and Jang Kun Lee are the five main raiding options, while Dong Geon Lee could be a differential if he starts. Pardeep is a must-have in this side, with the Patna skipper in some top form off late.
All-Rounders: Monu, Sandeep Narwal and Vikas Jaglan are the all-rounders likely to start and the latter two should be preferred.
Defenders: Fazel Atrachali, Surinder Singh and Neeraj Kumar are the good premium options in defence while Hadi Oshtorak, Jawahar Dagar and Harendra Kumar offer a lot of value at lower prices.
