TEL-T vs MUM-U: It is revenge time for the Telugu Titans, as they meet U Mumba yet again in the 87th match of the Pro Kabaddi League. The match is scheduled to happen at the Netaji Subash Chandra Bose Stadium, Kolkata.
Well, it certainly is testing times for both the teams after a dismal show in the first half of the tournament. While both teams will look to come back strong, U Mumba will certainly have a slight advantage over the Titans, after having beaten them in their previous encounter. Also, U Mumba is currently ranked above Telugu Titans at the 6th place, while Titans are sitting at the 9th position in the league standings. U Mumba have had an interesting comeback in their previous match against Puneri Paltan, which led to an emphatic draw. In a total of 13 games played so far, U Mumba had won 6 and lost 6, with 1 match resulting in a draw.
Telugu Titans, on the other hand, have had a regrettable run so far in the tournament. Both the players and the coach look clueless, in their quest to understand what is going wrong for them. Their performance on the field has been shoddy, after having managed to win just 4 games out of the 13 matches played. They will have to make a strong return at this stage, to keep their hopes alive, to qualify for the playoffs.
With both the teams hungry to turn their fortunes around, it will be interesting to see who will emerge victorious in this battle of supremacy.

U MUMBA’S STARTING 7:
Abhishek Singh (R), Rohit Baliyan (R), Arjun Deshwal (R), Surender Singh (D), Fazel Atrachali (D), Sandeep Narwal (all-rounder), Young Chang Ko (D).
It was Abhishek Singh’s valiant effort that secured Mumbai a draw in their previous match against Puneri Paltan. Abhishek scored a Super 10 (11 raid points), by virtue of which the match resulted in a tie. With a strong display of performance, the team must be upbeat and shall look to deliver a little more than what they could in the previous match.
The trio Abhishek Singh, Arjun Deshwal and Rohit Baliyan have been exceptional for the team, and now it is about time that the defenders rise up to the occasion and find their form. Out of 535 total raids, the raiders were successful in 161 occasions, with Abhishek leading the front with 70 raid points in 11 games. Arjun with 46 raids is next to Abhishek, followed by Athul MS, who has 33 points to his name in 10 games.
The defence is controlled by captain Atrachali himself, who has 40 tackle points from his 13 appearances. Sandeep Narwal is closing in with his captain with 33 points, while Surender Singh has 29 points.
Coming back with a win followed by a delightful draw, Captain Fazel Atrachali would be confident of winning the game against the Titans.
TELUGU TITANS STARTING 7:
Siddharth Desai (R), Suraj Desai (R), Rajnish (R), Abozar Mighani (D), Vishal Bharadwaj (D), C Arun (D), Farhad Milaghardan (all-rounder).
Despite Siddharth Desai’s class act in the previous match against Bengaluru Bulls, with 22 raid points, the team couldn’t go beyond the winning line. It was surprising to see Vishal Bhardwaj, who is currently the league’s best defender, committing some errors in the match, resulting in their defeat. The Telugu Titans would be should look to make their mark in the tournament now, by leaving aside all the negatives and implementing all the learning they had in the tournament till date.
After scoring a century of raid points, Siddharth Desai remains their top bet for the match with 109 raid points in 13 matches. His brother and co-player Suraj Desai is just next to Siddharth, with 42 raid points in 10 games. While the likes of Vishal Bhardwaj leading their defence, he isn’t getting support from the rest of the players, which is leading to a loss. The biggest problem for the Titans is the fact that the team has heavily relied upon Siddharth, Suraj and Vishal. If they are able to provide the support required for them, the Telugu Titans will certainly pose a great challenge to the opposition.
