Haryana Steelers vs U Mumba
Jawaharlal Nehru Indoor Stadium, Chennai
2019 Pro Kabaddi League Season 7 – Match 49
Monday, 19th August 2019; 7:30 PM IST.
U Mumba will take on the Haryana Steelers in the first match of a doubleheader on Monday, 19th August at 7:30 PM IST at the Jawaharlal Nehru Indoor Stadium, Chennai. The Steelers lost 29-40 to the Telugu Titans on Sunday and will need to pivot their fortunes in this one. U Mumba in the interim won 34-30 against the Patna Pirates on account of a Super Raid from Rohit Baliyan on the buzzer raid subsequent to neglecting a tremendous lead.
After three losses on the trot, Haryana Steelers found themselves in a spot of bother. But coach Rakesh Kumar and his men responded in some style, beating Patna Pirates, Bengaluru Bulls and UP Yoddha in back-to-back matches. The key to their resurgence has been the return of raider Vikash Kandola, who has scored 49 raid points in just five matches, with Super 10s in each of the team’s three games. After losing their last game yesterday, the team will be hoping for a comeback against Fazel Atrachali’s U Mumba.
Player To Watch Out For- Vikash Kandola
Captain Fazel Atrachali would be aiming to seek confidence from the win against Patna when they face Haryana. Mumba’s defenders have made 62 successful tackles in 8 games but they would be hoping to be more alert. Mumba’s raiders haven’t been too effective for they’ve had just 94 successful raids from 320 total raids. Rohit got 9 raid points to his name while Athul MS did well with 8 raid points while young Arjun Deshwal got 4 points to his name in the last match. The team will be eyeing for another win to improve their contention to Top 6.
Player To Watch Out For- Rohit Baliyan
