Right then, this is another do-or-die match for the Gujarat Giants after they emerged victorious yesterday against the Tamil Thalaivas. The Giants' fate in this tournament depends upon this encounter and a win is certain to take them through to the playoffs. The Giants' defense was on top-form last night and they will be hoping to replicate their performance tonight as well. The raiding department was led by Mahendra Ganesh Rajput and supported well by Pardeep Kumar. The Giants are a settled side and expect them to come out all guns blazing in this must-win encounter. 

U Mumba, on the other hand, will not back down and will surely put up a fight to end the season on a high. The Mumbai outfit was recently knocked out of the race for the playoffs after they lost their previous encounter against U.P. Yoddha. Nonetheless, they have a great side which has just lost momentum towards the end of the tournament, resulting in their current standing in the points table. With nothing to lose, expect U Mumba to play an aggressive brand of kabaddi and perhaps also give a chance to some of the youngsters and new players in the squad. 
Welcome ladies and gentlemen to the penultimate match of the league stage of the Pro Kabaddi League, 2022 which will pit the Gujarat Giants up against U Mumba at the Sheraton Grand, Whitefield. We are in for a cracker of a contest and all you need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy as I, Maanas Upadhyay, take you through all that unfolds over the course of this contest!
