PUN vs MUM Dream11 Team : Opening match of the Mumbai leg of PKL 7 sees us hosts U Mumba face off against Puneri Paltan today.
The second leg of Pro Kabaddi League 7 is finally upon us with us travelling to Mumbai starting today for a one week stay in the city. And opening things at the new stadium will be home side U Mumba who take on Puneri Paltan in their second match of the frontier league.
The hosts will be considering their PKL 7 sojourn to be open today as they get ready to partake in a congested home leg which will play a paramount role in determining how the season shapes up for them. With 4 matches slated in the comfort of home solace, U Mumba will be looking to overturn a harrowing 21 points defeat in their league opener, a match which saw them being brushed apart by 21 points against Jaipur Pink Panthers.
Elsewhere, Puneri Paltan enter the fray of Mumbai after having being put down by 10 points by Haryana Steelers in their previous encounter. The side were without raider Nitin that day, a player who should return to the side after recovering from a muscle injury he had sustained for that particular encounter. For both the sides, the agenda will be to rectify the floundering nature of their defence, one which let the sides down massively in their first fixtures of the new season.
PUN vs MUM Probable Winner
While Puneri Paltan only need to address their defensive facet, U Mumba have larger problems to get right today. The attacking department made for sordid viewing with no one apart from Abhishek Singh ready to step up to the mantle and up with vital raiding points at crucial junctures.
Elsewhere Puneri Paltan were left disappointed by captain Surjeet Singh but saw right cover Shubman Shinde emerge as a bright player for the side in defence. He is someone the side will be relying on today as well along with Pawan Kumar Sehrawat in attacking to dwindle a U Mumba side which they know can be defeated.
Expect this to be an equally contested encounter with us giving U Mumba the slightest of benefit in this encounter owing to the fact that they have a better defensive department.

Dream 11 Picks
Defenders for PUN vs MUM Dream11
U Mumba had invested heavily in defence ahead of the PKL 7 and despite the backline letting them down massively the last time around, expect them to be a better unit today. They are packed with some stellar names, players who have drilled into them the ability to come up with thigh and body hold along with crucial blocks.
This sees us bring in the stalwart, captain Surjeet Singh from the side while we are opting from Shubham Shinde from Pune given how much he impressed the last time around for the side. Jadhav Balasaheb Shahaji comes in as well from Puneri Paltan giving how much U Mumba rely on the sole services of Abhishek Singh upfront the match.
All-Rounders for PUN vs MUM Dream11
Sandeep Narwal comes in from U Mumba as well with the player playing a key component of their backline. This match will need their entire defensive setup to unlock its true potential against a raiding unit which can easily leave the minced if they fail to put in timely tackles and come in with the chain arm tackles at the right time.
Raiders for PUN vs MUM Dream11
While Abhishek Singh has been dauntless for his side, he’s lacked the much needed support from the other end with no one stepping up to the mantle to provide him assistance. It’s been an area which has pegged his side back but up against a Puneri Paltan defence which is known to dwindle, we are getting in Rohit Baliyan as well for this match.
Elsewhere from Puneri Paltan, its Pawan Kumar Sehrawat who comes in after his super 10 the last time around.
Captain And Vice-Captain for PUN vs MUM Dream11
We are going to be selecting both raiders as our choices here with Pawan our captain while Abhishek from Mumbai is our vice-captain.
