Tamil Thalaivas’ are left with a single chance to win a game at home so they will be more determined to perform better and finish the home leg on a high note. U Mumba has played well in patches and lacked consistency so in this match they will look forward to performing as a unit.
Tamil Thalaivas lost their last match against Jaipur Pink Panthers because they couldn’t execute their strategies in terms of curbing the bonuses. Both their main raiders didn’t perform well in super tackle situations and that cost them the match. In defence, they would hope for the return of the highest tackle point scorer of the team Manjeet Chhilar so that they could guide the defence better as in the last match they scored only six points. In the raiding department skipper Ajay Thakur and Rahul Chaudhari did well in the last match as both scored 6 points each but failed to score points at crucial moments. Tamil Thalaivas will be more determined to win this match for the home audience and end the home leg with a win.
U Mumba lost their last match against Haryana Steelers because their raiders failed to make an impact. The highest score by a raider who was in the starting seven was three. In this match, we probably will witness the highest raid points scorer Abhishek Singh back in the team. In defence, Fazel Atrachali and Sandeep Narwal have shown signs of getting back in form but as a unit, they still haven’t made a huge impact. One of the reasons for that is Surinder Singh's performance in the last two matches where he has scored only a single point. So, there are many areas of concern for U Mumba but they are a champion team which will hope to get back to winning ways.
He scored 6 points in his last match which was good but not good enough for the team. He failed to score at crucial moments especially in Super Tackle situations which cost his team. So in this match, he would hope to be better prepared for those situations and execute the strategies well.
He was U Mumba's highest scorer in the last match against Haryana Steelers where the rest of the raider’s failed. He scored 6 points in 9 raid attempts and that in pressure situations. Abhishek would target the weakest link in Thalaivas defence which is currently the cover positions and also target their defence for bonuses which emerged as a weakness in their last match.
