The Interzonal challenge week is in full flow and will continue in the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) 2018 season in Visakhapatnam, as Zone A leaders U Mumba take on the third-placed Bengal Warriors from Zone B.
U Mumba have won their last three matches, including an impressive win over Gujarat Fortunegiants. Having already secured passage to the playoffs, U Mumba will now be targeting the top place in the zonal standings.
As always, defence has been the key ingredient for Mumbai as the likes of Rohit Rana and Dharmaraj Cheralathan are working wonders, alongside skipper Fazel Atrachali. However, it is the performance of raider Siddharth Desai that has been the high point of Mumbai’s season.
The Bengal Warriors have lost their last match, but are still a very strong side. They are just eight points behind second-placed Patna Pirates in their zone and a win over Mumbai will reduce that gap further.
Maninder Singh has been the cornerstone of Warriors’ scene as the raider picked up 129 points in 13 matches so far. How he lines up against the defensive might of Atrachali could determine the result of this match.
This match is going to be a close fight between two of the best raiders of the season – Siddharth Desai and Maninder Singh. Of course, the defensive strength of Mumbai cannot be discounted and they look to have a slight edge in this tight encounter.
Fantasy Players to Watch
Siddharth Desai continues to surprise everyone with his consistency on the mat this season. He has dominated almost every match and is a strong pick in your fantasy team.
Maninder Singh is doing to Bengal Warriors what Desai is doing to U Muma. His powerful raids and ability to chalk out consistent Super 10 scores is a treat and has been the leading line for the Warriors.
Ravindra Kumawat is a relatively unknown name among the all-rounders of the season, but his contributions to the Warriors side have been excellent. A third raider and a crucial defender – Kumawat will be a good pick for your side.
