Bengal booked their semis place with a win over UP Yoddha in the eliminator. As for Mumbai, they finished the regular season top of the standings. During this season, the sides have met twice. Mumbai defeated Bengal once, while the other ended in a tie. This match will see the two best raiders of the season come face-to-face.
Bengal Warriors Preview
Bengal overcame an indifferent start to finish second in the regular season. It was due to an eight-match unbeaten streak they stitched to the end of the season. It was their captain and star raider Maninder Singh leading the show.
The raider has 205 raid points from 20 matches this season. He will once again be Bengal’s biggest hope. Not just him, even Prapanjan with 99 raid points has been consistent. All-rounder Nabibaksh has 107 points from the season and will be a key figure for the Warriors.
U Mumba Preview
Mumbai defeated Haryana in the second eliminator to make it five wins in a row now. The side is getting into top form at the right time. That will be ominous for Bengal, as Mumbai look to their star raider to do the job once again.
Abhishek Singh had a 16-point game against Haryana to knock them down. Arjun Deshwal has also excelled with a 15-point game. He will be the one to watch out. But the star player has to be their captain Fazel Atrachali. The defender has 81 tackle points in the season and has been consistent with his efforts.
