The Pro Kabaddi League will be ending another week as two intensifying contests wait for us on a Tuesday night. The viewership will be blowing through the roof as the day starts with the Haryana Steelers crossing swords with an adversary who has struggled vehemently in the ongoing season, Tamil Thalaivas. The Steelers will be desperate to secure a win as that will hand them over an important edge but a victory for the Thalaivas will act as a mere consolation for the side that has had nothing but pain so far. The second contest of the day will feature two confident teams as the Patna Pirates will be taking the mat against a battling U Mumba.
Patna Pirates vs U Mumba
Patna Pirates and the U Mumba both have so far shown contrasting fortunes. The Pirates has been roaring in red-hot form as they have garnered 11 wins and suffered a meagre 4 losses until now that has seen them grab 60 points while the U Mumba are in the sixth place, grabbing just six wins from the 16 matches that they have played, a record that they would like to forget at the earliest. However, going by the stature of the fixture, U Mumba will hardly survive the slaughter that the Pirates may impose upon them but then again when it comes to the mat, even Goliath has been slain by David on multiple occasions. However, the Pirates will have to be careful because they are being followed by Bengaluru Bulls and Dabang Delhi in very close contention. One misstep and it can be a hard fall from grace. When it comes to U Mumba, they managed to beat the Tamil Thalaivas in a hard-fought victory with just two points in between them. Abhishek Singh will be their finest pick and will have to ensure that the Mumbai team manage to change the dynamics of a campaign that has been down the drain already. U Mumba must eye a win to keep them alive in the ongoing as they hang barely by a thread and one slip-up can lead to their doom.
