MUM vs HAR Dream11 : Mumbai’s defence faces a staunch challenge in the form of the myriad Vikash Khandola today
They left everything to their defence even before the ongoing edition of Pro Kabaddi League 7 had gotten underway and for U Mumba, it ended up paying massive rewards. The side had decided to build out the sublime and illustrious framework of their consummate success from the back and its paid off for the side immensely, seeing them end as high as fourth in the league standings.
It’s not been a comfortable ride for them tough this far with the side having to traverse a rocky road to make it this far in the showpiece league. The side ultimately managed to live true to their moniker of being one of the most well-versed, astute, ardent and well disciplined defensive setup in the league with a slew of wins at just the right time in the marquee to find themselves plying their skill set today.
Now taking on Haryana Steelers today, U Mumba know their defensive valour, will, resolve and determination will be tested to the fore infront of the mettle of Vikash Khandola. A season of two halves for the side from the north, Haryana Steelers ended up massively overhauling a sordid set of events in the first half for them to go on an incredible journey and make it to fifth place with 13 wins which took them to 71 points.
However for all their good work, one thing which continues to perturb the side is their over reliance on Vikash Khandola with the side unable to cope up once their main raider is sent shunting out of the mat, an area the side need to massively address today. This is match between U Mumba’s defence and Haryana Steelers’ attack, an encounter which promises to be a riveting and intriguing affair which goes down right to the culminating stages.

MUM vs HAR Dream11 Defenders
Our entire backline is composed of picks from Haryana Steelers for this one. Mumbai have been found wanting in their attacking travails with the side being left in tatters on ample occasions and Haryana Steelers will be well aware of this predicament.
The duo of Sunil and Dhamraj Cheralathan has the potential of being a damaging one for Mumbai with Sunil being pivotal to the side’s cause today. He has gardened an impressive 55 tackle points with the right corner moving in quickly with him arm chain tackles, body holds and back holds to leave raiders in a peril. Chand Singh might end up playing the odd minutes today, seeing him come in as a player to add some points for us and more importantly free up funds elsewhere.
MUM vs HAR Dream11 All-Rounders
With 51 tackle points, Sandeep Narwal has been critical and vital to the success have tasted in the defending side of things. The all-rounder has taken the outright responsibility of delivering flawless and specialist performances in defence with his running ankle holds and thigh holds being extremely stringent and powerful to break out of for raiders.
MUM vs HAR Dream11 Raiders
The talisman of his side, Haryana Steelers would never have gotten this far had it not been for Vikash Khandola. He’s transitioned the side from a regressing unit into a sensational one, the player responsible for turning around their season with a mammoth 178 raid points till now.
What has impressed more is his acumen of the game, one which has seen him know exactly when to go for the bonus point, pull out of raids and return with an empty raid in lieu of his side’s gameplan. With 10 super 10s and 6 super raids, the player has been in the annuls of the best raiders of the league, someone who has found it all too easy to herald points his way.
Accompanying him is Vinay who has breached the symbolic milestone of 100 raid points while from the opposition we have gone in with Abhishek Singh, their leading raider with 135 raid points which include 8 super 10s.
