After winning the game against Tamil Thalaivas on Monday, U Mumba raider Abhishek Singh has said that the road ahead for U Mumba has now become easier. Abhishek also said that the match against Tamil Thalaivas was important for them to qualify and he wanted to perform well for the team.

U Mumba are now at the fourth place on the points table after Bengal, Delhi, and Haryana and they have gone much closer to the playoffs with their last win against Tamil Thalaivas. Abhishek Singh was one of their stars in that game with a super 10. After the match, Abhishek stated that he was eager to perform for the team as the match was crucial for them keeping the playoffs in mind.

“This match was important given the context of the standings currently. So, I wanted to perform well in this match. Now our road ahead has become easier. We had planned to win all our remaining matches going into the playoffs and now we are well on our way to that,” Abhishek told reporters after the game.

“I am happy with the fact that we won. Scoring Super 10s is pointless if your team does not make it over the line. What matters is who is able to ensure that their team ends up winning the match.”

U Mumba will play Patna Pirates today and in their next two matches, they will be up against Haryana Steelers and Dabang Delhi. Their assistant coach Upendra Singh mentioned about the importance of the win against the Thalaivas and its impact on other matches.

“This was a big match for the team. Two of the remaining matches are against Dabang Delhi K.C. and Haryana Steelers, who are table-toppers. Had we lost today, we would have been low on confidence going into those matches. We now need to win one more to qualify and we will try to ensure we don’t keep it till the end,” the assistant coach said.

Tamil Thalaivas had yet another bad day on the mat apart from their young raider V Ajith Kumar. He was the best find for the team and the biggest positive for them as well. The Tamil Nadu raider scored 16 raid points and starred for the Chennai-based team against U Mumba. However, Thalaivas’ coach J Uday Kumar said that according to him, Ajith is being overused now and needs good support to play better.

“He had performed well in other tournaments earlier, but he finally got a chance to perform on the big stage this season with Tamil Thalaivas. Despite that, he was on the bench for the first few matches. He got a chance only when some of our frontline players were not performing. I feel that he is being overused now. If he gets some good support, then he can perform even better,” Uday Kumar said.
