Two perfect games by their best players Manav and Lily have ensured that they take home a win, a big one that too! The U Mumba flag is unfurled in the stands and they have gotten in a terrific win here. 

It did not start off in the best of manners for U Mumba, with Quadri Aruna and Diya Chitale losing their respective games. However, they both ensured that they got in one game at least to make sure that the team stayed in the hunt. 

The turning point was the mixed doubles, where Manav and Lily took charge and got the better of Kirill and Manika in a closely-fought contest. Following that, the Smashers still had a 1-game lead in the tie but U Mumba did not look back from there on. 

After an initial slight struggle, Manav figured out Sanil Shetty and did not let his opponent win a single game. Skipper Lily Zhang replaced the same and with another 3-0 win over Natalia Bajor ensured that U Mumba completed a massive win to get going in this tournament.
