MUM vs TEL Dream11 prediction
Winless Telugu Titans take on U Mumba in a crucial match on Saturday. The Titans are the only side in the competition yet to register their first win. With 10 points in six games, they are currently languishing second from bottom on the points table.
Meanwhile, U Mumba have had an underwhelming season so far with two wins, one tie and three losses. They have failed to close out matches after gaining leads this season and will look to rectify that against a struggling Telugu Titans setup.
The two sides are evenly matched on paper boasting strong raiding units. However, U Mumba are slight favourites to win this match given the depth of their squad.
MUM vs TEL Dream11 team tips for Pro Kabaddi Season 8
Top tip: Best raider
Telugu Titans’ Rajnish will be a top pick for this clash. Rajnish is currently in the form of his life and scored 20 points in his last match against an experienced Dabang Delhi K.C. outfit. With 176 fantasy points in just two matches this season, Rajnish is a great budget pick for just 13.5 credits.
Top tip: Best defender
Picking Fazel Atrachali of U Mumba is a no-brainer amongst the defenders. The Iranian has not been at his best so far this season but his tally of a total of 327 tackle points in Pro Kabaddi makes him too good a player to ignore. Fazel has accumulated 219 fantasy points so far this season and is a worthwhile choice for 15 credits.
Top tip: Best all-rounder
Amongst all-rounders, picking Mohsen Maghsoudlou of U Mumba is the best option. Mohsen has primarily played the role of a defender this season although he is a handy raider capable of scoring points in bulk. Selected by 75 per cent of fantasy users, Mohsen Maghsoudlou is another good budget pick for 13.5 credits.
MUM vs TEL probable starting lineups
MUM starting 7 (probable): Abhishek Singh, Sunil Siddhgavali, Harendra Kumar, Mohsen Maghsoudlou, V Ajith Kumar, Rinku Sharma, Fazel Atrachali (captain)
TEL starting 7 (probable): Rajnish, Rakesh Gowda, Rohit Kumar (captain), Prince D, Ruturaj Koravi, Surender Singh, Sandeep Kandola
