FT: U Mumba 37-29 Gujarat Giants

Turned out to be a wonderful passage of play for U Mumba as they produced a scintillating performance in the final 10 minutes to beat the Giants. It was neck-and-neck in the first half and it went in the same flow until the 30th minute. 

Guman Singh and Ekrami's stunning raids along with Surender's strong tackles proved too hot to handle for the Giants. U Mumba inflicted an all-out in the 35th minute, and from there onwards, they stamped the authority in the final five to get their third win in the tournament

It's been intense in the first 20 minutes and both teams have everything to play for in the second half.

Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of the Pro Kabaddi League 2022. The final day in the Shree Kanteerava Indoor Stadium, Bangalore is upon us and it will be the Gujarat Giants locking horns with U Mumba to kick off proceedings. 

The Giants have had quite a decent tournament so far, winning three games out of the six that they have played so far. They have two losses to their name along with a tie too. Their campaign has been largely topsy-turvy but they have started a winning streak, beating the Yoddhas and Steelers in their previous two games. Rakesh Sungroya holds the key for them while their skipper, Chandran Ranjit, would like to get some crucial points under his belt as well. In the defensive scheme of things, they will rely upon Sourav Gulia and the right cover defender will be essential to stop Guman Singh. 

U Mumba, on the other hand, faced a demoralising loss in their previous game against the Bulls. They had a massive 13-point lead going into the half time but somehow, squandered it all away only to lose the game by ten points. They will be looking to put this loss behind them and come out all guns blazing in this contest as they look to get back to winning ways. They have three wins and the equal number of losses from their six games and will need to pick up the slack and perform more consistently if they are to get into the top half of the table. Guman Singh will be their lead raider while the defense has to continue playing the aggressive brand of kabaddi that they are known for. 

Right then, we are in for a cracker of a contest! Sit back, relax and enjoy Sportskeeda's coverage!
