Jaipur Pink Panthers and U Mumba have a rich rivalry and a history that goes back to the very first season. Another good encounter is on the cards when they face each other in the 68th match of the Pro Kabaddi Season 7 2019 on the opening day of the Bangalore leg.
The current U Mumba unit is not quite the same challenging team from the previous season. They have missed the services of a match-winning raider and that even reflects in their points tally. Mumbai is currently as of now at the sixth position in the points table and have looked vulnerable at all times.

After enjoying a strong start in the early stages of this tournament, Jaipur has even ended up on the losing side three times in the last four matches. Their skipper Deepak has scored only two points in the last two games, and that is the main reason for the Jaipur blip in form.
Nitin Rawal has offered good support to this attack and has been Jaipur main man in times of crisis. Deepak Narwal could even manage only two points in the last game, and he must even try to bring more to this team by using his experience. They also have Nilesh Salunke, who has the ability to produce the multi-points raids.
Stat: Jaipur Pink Panthers have the greatest number of tackle points this season (127)
