The legendary battle between U Mumba and the Jaipur Pink Panthers is set to resume! Both teams have a history of dominance as the Pro Kabaddi League’s first mega franchises.
The Rajasthan-based team has been in excellent form recently, defeating Haryana Steelers and UP Yoddha in their last two games. Jaipur appears to have found the perfect combination to continue their winning streak. In contrast to Pink Panthers, U Mumba’s season eight campaign has been a disaster. Mumba began the season with a memorable victory over Bengaluru Bulls, but was unable to maintain the momentum. Coach Subramanian Rajaguru is still looking for the right combination of players for Starting 7.
Arjun Deshwal, a former MumBoy, is causing havoc for his current team, the Jaipur Pink Panthers. In the first three games of season eight, Arjun has the second-most raid points with 38. Arjun Deshwal, as a right raider, will confront Iranian Sultan Fazel Atrachali in U Mumba’s left corner zone. U Mumba’s captain and top defender from the previous season is yet to reach his full ability. Since his return to Mumba, Fazel has a track record of 17 tackle points against arch-rivals, including two High 5s.
