Both teams have played three matches in this season. After suffering a heavy defeat in the opening fixture, U Mumba have revived well to claim two successive wins, against Haryana Steelers and against Dabang Delhi. On the other hand, Gujarat FortuneGiants, who debuted with a win, went on to draw and lose its other two matches. However, the franchise is unlikely to make any changes in its playing 7. Mumbai’s left corner defender N. Renjith might earn a berth in the starting 7 in place of Joginder Narwal. The 28-year-old came on late against Dabang Delhi and scored two brilliant tackles, which included a Super Tackle.
U Mumba: Shabeer Bappu, D. Suresh Kumar, Kuldeep Singh, Kashiling Adake, Anup Kumar, Surinder Singh, N. Renjith
Possible Substitutes: Hadi Oshtorak; Nitin Madane; Shrikant Jadhav; Joginder Narwal; Darshan Kadian
Player who cannot be ignored:
Anup Kumar: The India skipper has scored 17 raid points and 4 tackle points in three matches this season. Anup is known to possesses one of the sharpest minds in Kabaddi. Expect him to step up every time the team needs him.
Alternative players you could consider: Kashiling Adake, Sukesh Hegde, Mahendra Rajput
