A repeat of last season's final features defending Pro Kabaddi champions Patna Pirates in an encounter with season 2 champions U Mumba in what will be an enchanting match on Wednesday. The two Pro Kabaddi giants will clash at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur.
U Mumba come into the game at the back of a win and a defeat in their season so far â€” a 36-34 win against Jaipur Pink Panthers and a heavy 41-19 defeat against Maharashtra rivals Puneri Paltan. Patna Pirates, on the other hand, come into the match at the back of a 30-24 win against Puneri Paltan.
In the Pro Kabaddi season 3 final earlier this year, the Pirates won 31-28 over the Mumbai side to lift the title for the first time ever.
It remains to be seen now whether a repeat of the same result will be witnessed now or will U Mumba get to avenge their loss. The Patna side dished out a complete team effort against Paltan in their last game and the likes of Dharmaraj Cheralathan, Pardeep Narwal and Surjeet Singh impressed all.
For Mumbai, Rakesh Kumar remained sensational against the Jaipur Pink Panthers, along with Rishank Devadiga.
Patna Pirates bagged two wins over U Mumba in their three encounters in Pro Kabaddi last season.
Where to watch live
The match between U Mumba and Patna Pirates will begin at 9 p.m. IST (4:30 p.m. BST) on June 29.
