Full Time: U Mumba 37 - Bengal Warriors 27

Stellar win for U Mumba, banking on their defensive strengths as skipper Fazel Atracheli lead from the front and almost singlehandedly kept Maninder Singh in check. Rinku supported him well from the other corner and grabbed a High 5 of his own. Ajith Kumar V (9 points) and Abhishek Singh (8 points) did well on the raiding front as they kept the pressure up on the Bengal Warriors' defence.

Bengal Warriors lacked the bite on another night when Maninder Singh was not at his A-game. He only managed 6 points on the night but was tackled a mammoth eight times during the match. Mohd. Esmael Nabibaksh supported him with 6 points of his own and Manoj Gowda had one Super Raid but the raiding unit was poor overall on the night. 

With that dominant win, U Mumba have leapfrogged a number of teams to clinch the sixth spot on the Pro Kabaddi 2022 standings now with 53 points from 18 matches. They can rise further on the table with a game in hand over their opponents. On the other hand, the path to the playoffs becomes tougher for the Warriors as they are stranded in the 11th spot after 20 matches, chances very bleak for them.
Shivam goes in for the raid and escapes the clutches of Rohit who put in an advance tackle on the raider but mistimed it.

Half Time: U Mumba 16 - Bengal Warriors 17

A game of the defences tonight as the sides have not allowed the raiders to have a smooth ride so far in the match. Bengal Warriors' Manoj Gowda proved to be a crucial gamechanger with a three-point Super Raid that tilted the balance in the Warriors' favour. U Mumba seemed to have kept Maninder Singh in check so far except for a two-point raid.
