PUN vs MUM Dream11 : Maharashtra derby set to light up the rivalry week of PKL7 with Puneri Paltan and Mumbai fighting it out in a colossal contest on Thursday
We might just have the sole encounter in the dramatic land of Pro Kabaddi League 7 today but it’s a mementos contest, one massive enough to quench our thirst of riveting action in the marquee league. With Puneri Paltan and U Mumba squaring off against each other, the rivalry week sees one of its most intriguing and enthralling contest take place today in a match which promises to be an edge of the seat thriller.
The Maharashtra derby in the league has always been an enthralling affair and this match is bound to be no different. Although having endured two differing seasons with each side placed at opposite ends of the points tally in PKL 7, current form and recent showings are swept aside when these two rivals face off in one of the oldest and most competitive and feisty rivalry in the league.
For U Mumba in particular, the ramifications from today’s encounter are immense. While a win is an impending need in a clash of such magnitude, the side will also be looking to further continue their up rise in the marquee league. Currently placed in sixth place, the side registered a crucial win over Jaipur in their previous encounter, a result which sees them two points clear of U.P. Yoddha in seventh place.
Elsewhere for Puneri Paltan, this has been a season filled with aberrations. Languishing in 11th place with just the 4 wins and 25 points, the side have been one of the worst sides in the league, on outfit who have never managed to get going, seeing specks of wins line up a string of horrid defeats till now.
Probable Playing 7
Manjeet, Nitin Tomar, Pankaj Mohite, Surjeet Singh, Amit Kumar, Sagar Krishna, Girish Ernak
Abhishek Singh, Rohit Baliyan, Arjun Deshwal, Surender Singh, Fazel Atrachali, Sandeep Narwal, Young Chang Ko
PUN vs MUM Match Prediction
The last time these two sides clashed heads in the showpiece league, U Mumba ended up trouncing Puneri Paltan by 10 points and today’s clash should be no different. This is a match which not only heavily favours Mumbai but is bound to see them come out with a runaway win, an encounter where they elevate their raiding displays to mince out a paper thin defensive setup.

PUN vs MUM Dream11 Defenders
Ever since their foray into the fray of PKL 7, U Mumba have made one thing clear. They are going to massively bank on their defence to build the sublime and illustrious framework of success for them and someone who has ensured that is Surinder Singh.
After a deficit start to the league, he waned off in form in the middle period but looks to be back at his with a pulsating display against Jaipur. He used his running ankle holds and thigh holds to immense effect, moving in quickly to read the raiders’ every move and stifle them of any room. With 26 tackle points, we comes into our side along with Harendra Kumar.
All-Rounders for PUN vs MUM Dream11
With 56 raid points in 11 clashes, we have opted for the services of Manjeet from Mumbai. Although Nitin’s return has seen his involvement in raids go down massively, the identity of this stellar Mumbai defence will see him be called upon ample times especially in the all-outs and do or die raids.
Elsewhere from Mumbai we have headed in with their second most successful defender, Sandeep Narwal, someone who 29 tackle points have been quissential to the side’s cause.
PUN vs MUM Dream11 Raiders
Up against an inconsistent and struggling Puneri Paltan defence, U Mumba’s defenders are bound to massively enjoy their time out in the middle. We fully envisage them to herald in raiding points at will, outing in super raids and afflicting all-outs on their opposition with consummate ease.
Abhishek Singh, the side’s leading raider with 50 points comes into our side along with MS Athul. Elsewhere from the opposition we have chosen Pankaj Mohite as the lone pick for this clash.
PUN vs MUM Dream11 Captain And Vice-Captain
Abhishek Singh is our side’s captain for today while also from U Mumba we have MS Athul be selected as the vice-captain.
