Two big names of the Pro Kabaddi â€” U Mumba and Telugu Titans â€” clash swords for the second time in the Pro Kabaddi season four on Thursday. Titans defeated the Pro Kabaddi season 2 champions the last time they met this season.
Currently, with four league games to go, U Mumba have really got to perform well on a consistent basis as they could lose out a knockout stage berth in case of even a minor falter. The Anup Kumar-led side are fourth in the table with 32 points â€” just a point above Puneri Paltan.
Telugu Titans, on the other hand, are second in the table with 37 points. The Hyderabad side haven't lost any of their last six games in the competition and their consistency is really helping their cause this time around.
Rahul Chaudhary has led the Titans exceptionally well from the front and he has been very consistent so far. Mumbai, on the other hand, are coming into the game at the back of a win over Puneri Paltan but their overall consistency has taken a beating this time. The likes of Anup and Rakesh Kumar, therefore, have to be at the top of their form to continue their winning spree.
Squad: U Mumba - Anup Kumar (C), Gurvinder Singh, Md. Munshi, Md. Tuhin, Zakir Hossain, Rishank Devadiga, Surendra Singh, Suresu Kumar, Vikash Kumar, Surjeet, Vikas Kale, Manoj Dhull, Jeeva Kumar, Sunil Kumar, Nitin Kumar, Rakesh Kumar, Sourav V.
