In match number 52 of the Pro Kabaddi League 2017 which was earlier washed away, U Mumba takes on the Gujarat Fortunegiants. This match is a great opportunity for Gujarat to increase their gap of 12 points from U Mumba. Mumbai, on the other hand, has recently found the momentum and would like to keep that going. A lot will depend on the Mumbai captain Anup Kumar who has a relatively inexperienced and young squad at his disposal. Gujarat has recently seen a dip in their form, winning just two of its last five matches. While captain Sukesh Hegde has had a tough time in this season, it is young Sachin, the team will look towards for some inspiration. On paper, Mumbai looks like a more dangerous side but is in desperate need of wins. The fans can also expect some fireworks today as Kumar takes on his friend turned foe – Fazel Atrachali.
