U Mumba take on Dabang Delhi in their fourth match of the Pro Kabaddi league season 4 on Friday at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur. The Season 2 champions haven't had a good start to their campaign this time around as they have lost twice already so far.
Dabang Delhi, also are yet to record a win in the Pro Kabaddi Season 4; however, they have played just two games so far. While their first game of the competition turned out to be a 31-23 defeat, the Delhi side drew 27-27 in their following game against Puneri Paltan.
Currently, both teams are in the bottom half of the league table but Mumbai have got to come up with something impressive now with three league games already done for them. U Mumba are currently on six points -- one win and a bonus point, while Dabang Delhi are on three points.
The Anup Kumar-led U Mumba came close to avenging their Pro Kabaddi Season 3 final loss against Patna Pirates when the two sides met on Wednesday, but the Pirates this time around too, edged past the Mumbai side with just two points.
Rakesh Kumar remained impressive for the Mumbai side in the last match, but it was really unfortunate for him not to lead his team to the victory. Rakesh and Rishank Devadiga will be expected, however, to give a more-spirited performance to help their side bag an emphatic win against Dabang Delhi.
Dabang Delhi, led by Manjeet Chhillar, did well to hold leaders Puneri Paltan in their previous game. Manjeet, along with Deepak Hooda, picked up a lot of raid points against the Pune side and their momentum is expected to continue in Friday's match.
U Mumba beat Dabang Delhi by over a 10-point margin in both their games last season.
