PAT vs MUM Dream11 : U Mumbai and Patna Pirates look to propel themselves into the top 6 as either head our traversing for their fourth win today
The culminating day of the Gujarat leg of Pro Kabaddi League brings with it two scrumptious matches, contests befitting to bring down the curtains on what has been a truly exhilarating one week of kabaddi in the leg. And beginning proceedings on the day are two sides held in reverence for the scintillating brand of kabaddi they play with U Mumba and Patna Pirates clashing heads against each other.
What this match brings with it is not only an opportunity to watch an enthralling contest of kabaddi but also for either side to boost themselves into the coveted to 6. Having endured similar seasons till now, both the sides make a foray into the fray of today’s encounter with three wins and four defeats from the seven match either have played, playing them close by each other in the league.
While U Mumba are undoubtedly one of the most formidable and complete outfits in the league, inconsistency has proved to be a major determent in their making strides up the ranks. While the side defeated Gujarat Fortunegiants by 12 points in their home leg, they ended up slipping to a slender 32-20 defeat against the Warriors. It was a result born out of a dearth of raiding options for the side, one which left them yeaning for the services of Abhishek Singh.
Elsewhere Patna Prates head into this encounter after having sealed a scintillating 41-20 win over U.P. Yoddha in the final match of their own home leg, a trouncing which saw every department step up to the mantle un unison. It was a perfect performance from the raiding and defensive performance, a rousing showing the side will be looking to resonate today as they look to work on their negative score difference.
Probable Playing 7
- Abhishek Singh’s availability for U Mumba continues to remain in question and it’s still unsure if he can recover in time for this one.

PAT vs MUM Dream 11 Picks
Defenders for PAT vs MUM Dream11
With 57 tackle points in 7 encounters, U Mumba have had to thank a staunch defence for coming up with impressive showings and being the cause for their ascendancy. And someone who has made heads turn and is being spoken in the same breath as some of the stalwarts of the game is Surinder Singh with the defender putting in resolute performances on a consistent basis.
Out of the 10 tackle points his side managed in the previous match, he was responsible for 4 of them and with him being more than capable of pulling off successful raids as well in all out situations, he’s our first pick. From the opposition we have opted for the services of cover Jaideep and Neeraj Kumar who pulled off an 8 tackle point performance against U.P. Yoddha.
All-Rounders for PAT vs MUM Dream11
With Surinder Singh not getting enough support from his backline, seeing Mumbai go on a horrid run in their recent encounters, Sandeep Narwal has still been someone who has provided adequate assistance to him. And the all-rounder will need to show why his side have earmarked him as the fulcrum of their side and repose their faith today with a stellar showing.
Monu was someone we considered as well with his inclusion in Patna Pirates playing 7 likely today given his capabilities of contributing in both the raiding and tackling departments and with Mohammad Maghsoudlou enduring a sordid outing till now, Monu should replace him.
Raiders for PAT vs MUM Dream11
His third super 10 of the season in the previous encounter along with having breached the symbolic milestone of 900 points are numbers which epitomised why Pardeep Narwal is considered one of the finest raiders in game. His toe touches, kicks, firkis and dubkis are improbable to stop with the raider having an innate ability in his belly to come out of the trickiest of situations with successful raids.
He’s the first player picked by us while fro Mumbai we are choosing Arjun Deshwal. He impressed massively the last time around with a super 10 in the absence of Abhishek Singh and the brunt of the responsibility will come down on his shoulders today as well.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Pardeep is our captain for today while Surinder is the vice-captain.
