PKL 10: What seven will the Mumbai team play against the Bengal Warriors?

U Mumba, the runners-up of the first-ever PKL season and champions of the second season of the Pro Kabaddi League, have started season 10 on a positive note, sitting seventh in the points table with three wins and two losses from five games. The U Mumba team has 16 points and a +5 point differential.

The Mumbai-based team, which spent heavily on defenders and foreign all-rounders, will attempt to challenge the Bengaluru Bulls with a strong defensive unit directed by Surinder Singh. The task will be difficult, but Mumba is a team that has created its name by being fearless on the mat and leaving nothing behind. The following is their likely starting lineup for the match against Bengal:

1. Center: Guman Singh
Guman Singh has been in charge of U Mumba's raiding department for the past two years. He has been a star performance for them, and as a result, he was paid INR 85 lakh at the auction to play for U Mumba. Guman Singh scored an outstanding super 10 in the previous game.

2. Left Cover: Mahender Singh
Mahender Singh has found a new home in U Mumba after being released by the Bengaluru Bulls for Season 10 of the PKL. Mahender Singh, who has been in the PKL since its inception, got two points in the most recent game against the Tamil Thalaivas.

3. Right Cover: Surinder Singh
Surinder Singh, the captain of U Mumba, will play in the right cover position. He had two tackle points in the previous game, but has not been at his best this season.

4. Left Corner: Sombir
Sombir, a young and aspirational defender, was asked to fill the shoes of Girish Maruti Ernak who is a kabaddi legend, and Sombir has not disappointed. He has been sensational with his defensive skills and also scored high-five in the last match to take his team over the line against the Tamil Thalaivas.

5. Right Corner: Rinku
U Mumba's right corner is filled by the ever-impressive Rinku, who had a dream season last year, amassing 59 tackle points. Rinku was on fire in the last game, scoring three tackle points in total.


6. Left In: Visvanath V
Visvanath V was purchased at auction this year by U Mumba and made his debut immediately. Visvanath has performed admirably in his first season in the PKL, excelling as a support raider to Guman Singh and Amirmohammad Zafardanesh. He scored five points in the previous encounter.


7. Right In: Amirmohammad Zafardanesh
U Mumba paid an exorbitant INR 68 lakh for this Iranian all-rounder, and he has not disappointed. This year, Zafardanesh has been in great form and has played like a champion. In the fifth match, he scored ten points.

Predicted Starting 7 of U Mumba against the Bengal Warriors:

Guman Singh, Mahender Singh, Surinder Singh (c), Sombir, Rinku, Visvanath V, and Amirmohammad Zafardanesh. The raiders of the U Mumba team are on fire and would be expected to continue their form. The defenders are also looking in good touch but the experienced defenders need to come in with more points and successful tackles.
