Gujarat Fortune Giants will now be going to have to get through the U Mumba solid defense to get their season back on track when they face each other in the 102nd match of the PKL 2019.
U Mumba has beaten Gujarat 32-20 in their previous encounter. Surinder Singh had a huge impact in that game with his all-round performance that fetched him nine points. After a series of poor efforts, Surinder finds himself back in the form after he scored six points in the last match.
U Mumba also boasts of two of the strongest corners in this tournament – Fazel Atrachali & Sandeep Narwal. A little more contribution from Harendra Kumar will make this defense a pretty formidable one.
Their offensive front has been boosted by Arjun Deshwal’s recent rise. He has 32 points in the last three games and has been a treat to watch. Athul MS is known for his little cameos, and in the absence of a star raider, his contribution becomes even more important.
Strike raider Abhishek Singh picked up a Super 10 in the last game and U Mumba now look like a complete unit.
Predicted Starting 7
U Mumba: Abhishek Singh, Arjun Deshwal, Harendra Kumar, Surinder Singh, Athul MS, Fazel Atrachali (C), Sandeep Narwal
Gujarat Fortunegiants: Sachin Tanwar, GB More, Rohit Gulia, Sunil Kumar (C), Parvesh Bhainswal, Pankaj, Ruturaj Koravi
