Tamil Thalaivas look for third win in a row at U Mumba’s expense - get PKL Season 8 predictions
U Mumba (MUM) will take on Tamil Thalaivas (TAM) in match 95 of Pro Kabaddi Season 8 at the Sheraton Grand, Whitefield, Bengaluru on Saturday, February 5. The match will begin at 7:30 PM IST.
MUM vs TAM Dream11 prediction
While U Mumba and Thailavas have similar results in their last five Pro Kabaddi Season 8 matches - two wins, two defeats and one tie - TAM will start as slight favourites in match 95 on account of back-to-back wins against Bengaluru Bulls and Telugu Titans in their previous outings.
U Mumba, on the flip side, have suffered defeats in their last two PKL 2021-22 outings and will hope to avoid another loss on Saturday.
In terms of the head-to-head record, U Mumba enjoy a 4-1 lead in six meetings with Tamil Thalaivas. TAM’s only win against MUM came back in the 2017 edition with then captain Ajay Thakur anchoring a 38-35 win.
MUM vs TAM Dream11 team tips for Pro Kabaddi Season 8
Top tip: Best raider
Fantasy players can confidently draft in Manjeet as the top raider in their team for this fixture. The TAM star has scored 116 raid points in PKL Season 8 and he will look to test the resolve of a shaky U Mumba defence with his skill and guile. With 904 fantasy points so far, Manjeet is a wise investment in fantasy teams given he averages 8.29 raid points per match.
Top tip: Best defender
Sagar is the top defender to consider in the MUM vs TAM match. The TAM defender has registered 63 tackle points - the most by any player this season - including six Super Tackles and eight High 5s. Sagar will be a major threat to the U Mumba raiders and will hope to add more fantasy points to his existing tally of 1,351 on Saturday.
Top tip: Best all-rounder
Among all-rounders, Rahul Sethpal is the one to watch out for. The MUM defender - listed as an all-rounder - missed the last two games but is expected to return for the crucial match against TAM. In 11 games so far, Sethpal has managed 23 tackle points as well as 10 raid points and will hope to put on a commanding display when facing the likes of TAM’s Sagar and Manjeet.
MUM vs TAM probable starting lineups
MUM starting 7 (probable): Abhishek Singh, V. Ajith Kumar, Harendra Kumar, Fazel Atrachali, Sunil Siddhgavali, Rinku Hc, Rahul Sethpal
TAM starting 7 (probable): Ajinkya Ashok Pawar, Manjeet, M. Abishek, PO Surjeet Singh, Sagar, Sahil Singh, Mohit-II
