UP Yoddha have won three, lost one and drawn one of their five games this season. Their unit displayed an all-round performance to share the spoils against unbeaten Patna Pirates in their previous match. On the contrary, U Mumba’s performance has been erratic across all departments. The Anup Kumar-led side is going into this game after suffering a massive defeat against Gujarat. Following Shabeer Bappu’s dismal performance, the Mumbai think tanks are likely to pick Anup, Kashiling and Nitin to lead the franchise’s raid attack.
UP Yoddha: Nitin Tomar, Rajesh Narwal, Jeeva Kumar, Mahesh Goud, Rishank Devadiga, Nitesh Kumar, Pankaj
Possible Substitutes: Hadi Tajik; Surender Singh; Sagar Krishna; Santhosh B.S; Rohit Kumar
U Mumba: Nitin Madane, D. Suresh Kumar, Kuldeep Singh, Kashiling Adake, Anup Kumar, Surinder Singh, N. Renjith
Possible Substitutes: Dong Ju Hong; Shabeer Bappu; Shrikant Jadhav; Shiv Om; Darshan Kadian
Players who cannot be ignored:
Nitin Tomar: Excluding the match where he was subbed off early due to an ankle injury, the UP skipper has picked close to eight points per game, this season. He has led the team’s attack and has proven lethal.
Alternatives that you could consider: Mahesh Goud, Jeeva Kumar
Happy Hunting!!! Kabaddi... kabaddi.... kabaddi....
