Pro Kabaddi 2017: In another Pro Kabaddi League clash today, U Mumba are locking horns against Tamil Thalaivas at Sawai Man Singh Stadium, Jaipur. U Mumba need to go into the game all guns blazing for they are on a hunt to seal the playoff berth, especially after their loss against Jaipur Pink Panthers. On the other hand, Tamil Thalaivas is looking forward to dust off their disastrous home run. U Mumba will rely on their raiders, Kashiling Adake and Anup Kumar, in this clash as the rival camps have struggled in the defence department. Shabeer Bappu has also played a great role of a supporting attacker for Mumba. Talking about the Tamil Thalaivas, although their captain Ajay Thakur has been in great form and has nine Super 10s to his name, Thalaivas have struggled overall as a team in this year’s PKL edition. Prapanjan has also supported his captain well in the raid department, but their efforts have too often not led to their team winning. The defence department which comprises Amit Hooda, C Arun, Darshan amongst others needs to buck up in order to get the Thalaivas out of their rut. U Mumba are currently placed fourth in the Zone A table with 55 points. They have won 10 and lost 10. Meanwhile, Thalaivas have played 19 matches and are placed last in the Zone B table with just 35 points. Thalaivas have won four matches, lost 13 and drawn two.
