MUM vs GUJ Dream11 : U Mumba look to wrap up their home leg with a win against undefeated Gujarat Fortunegiants
Bringing an end to Dabang Delhi K.C.’s unbeaten spree yesterday, Gujarat Fortunegiants find themselves remain just one of the two unbeaten sides along with Jaipur Pink Panthers in the dramatic land of Pro Kabaddi League. And the side will be looking to continue on their marauding way today as well when they take on hosts Mumbai in the final encounter of the Mumbai leg of the frontier league.
Defeating Delhi yesterday in an edge of the seat thriller, Gujarat showed why they are considered one of the firm favourites to walk away with the glistening trophy under their arms. The most consistent side in the league ever since making an advent in it, the side have been flawless in their opening three encounters, leaving no stone unturned in their bid to sit in the annuls of the league standings.
Elsewhere, home side U Mumba have not seen their home leg shape out as the side would have liked. After winning their opening encounter of the home leg emphatically, things have ever since only waned for the side who find themselves losing 3 of their 5 matches with the most stunning defeat being a massive upset against U.P. Yoddha the last time around.
Playing their final match of the home leg today, U Mumba will be looking to make the most of an ardent home support today as they square off against one of the most formidable side in the league. A win is of paramount importance for them if they are to stay within touch of the league leaders, adding to the intrigue of today’s encounter.

Gujarat Fortune Giants
Sunil Kumar (C), Sachin, More GB, Rohit Gulia, Parvesh Bhainswal, Ankit, Sumit
This match is going to come down to the defences of the two sides. Both these sides believe in building a sublime and illustrious framework of success from the back, leaving raiding departments in disarray owing to their exuberant perusal of names in the defensive side of things.
It’s this facet which sees us side with Gujarat Fortunegiants, owing not only to their worldclass defenders but their ability to change their gameplan according to the opposition. One of the most articulate and well-versed side in the league, they have been dauntless across their stay and we see them winning this low scoring encounter and moving to the top of the league.

Dream 11 Picks
Defenders for MUM vs GUJ Dream11
We are going with one defender each from either side with us opting from Surinder Singh from U Mumbai’s side with the defender emerging as the star performer of his side. The defender has been an indomitable performer, someone who has made us revel in some emphatic showings across the 5 matches, coming up with impeccably timed blocks and body holds.
From Gujarat we are getting in Sunil Kumar with U Mumba having registered a mere 59 successful raids out of the 199 the side have tried to execute. It’s been a conundrum for them up the mat, leaving the side yearning for more wins and Gujarat’s staunch defence should capitalise on it.
All-Rounders for MUM vs GUJ Dream11
With 20 tackle points in 3 matches, all-rounder Rohit Gulia has metered as not only a pivotal performer for his side up the mat but an instrumental one in the raiding side of things as well. He’s slowly emerging as an indispensable player for his side, someone who incorporates both sides of the game to perfection.
Raiders for MUM vs GUJ Dream11
Carrying on with the same narrative, GM More’s showing against Delhi yesterday was one to regale in. While he was articulate as ever in attack, it was his ability to canter his way to successful tackles which left us mesmerised, seeing the player show how he’s growing in stature as an all-rounder.
He’s going to be paired with Sachin Tanwar while Abhishek Singh comes in from U Mumba. The side’s failure to address the raiding unit has cost them heavily and Abhishek has looked as the only player who has offered the slightest bit of semblance in the attacking side of things for them with 25 successful raids.
Captain And Vice-Captain for MUM vs GUJ Dream11
Rohit is our captain for this encounter while GB More is our vice-captain.
