As the race to playoffs in the Pro Kabaddi League Season 7 (PKL) heats up, the matches are set to get more engaging. Match #95 of the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) Season 7 will feature U Mumba and UP Yoddha in Pune on Wednesday.
The match is crucial for both sides as they look to consolidate their top-six standing. Mumbai (W7, L7, T1) have 43 points and are sixth, while UP (W8, L5, T2) have 47 points and are fifth. A win here will push either side up the table.
U Mumba Preview
Mumbai have improved their mid-season fortunes with a winning run. However, that was halted by Bengal Warriors in their previous game. Arjun Deshwal tried his best by scoring 14 raid points, but that was not enough.
Mumbai defence couldn’t come to the party against the Warriors. The likes of Fazel Atrachali, Sandeep Narwal and Surinder Singh will be itching to get back into business. For your fantasy picks, keep an eye on Abhishek Singh, Arjun Deshwal and Rohit Baliyan. All three have been U Mumba’s mainstays in raiding.
UP Yoddha Preview
Yoddha are the form team of the tournament now, with five wins in five. The side will be keen to continue the momentum with the playoff place still not guaranteed. Having won their previous encounter at this venue, UP will hope to maintain their 100% record here.
UP’s raiders have taken their time to come to the fore. However, the likes of Shrikant Jadhav and Monu Goyat have started contributing. Rishank Devadiga hasn’t really contributed with points, but his presence adds calm to the side.
Fantasy Players to Watch
Abhishek Singh has 76 raid points in 13 matches and is U Mumba’s best raider this season. With him leading the charge for Mumbai, there is every chance of another strong showing.
Arjun Deshwal has 69 raid points from 14 matches and is coming off a 14-point match. With his rising form, he is expected to contribute fantasy points fairly.
Shrikant Jadhav has been the lone bright raiding spark for UP Yoddha. The quick-footed raider has 87 points from 15 games. Expect him to contribute handsomely to your fantasy side.
