Tamil Thalaivas (TAM) will take on U Mumba (MUM) in match 15 of Pro Kabaddi Season 8 at Sheraton Grand Whitefield, Bengaluru on Monday, December 27. 

TAM vs MUM Dream11 prediction

Season 2 champions U Mumba will take on Tamil Thalaivas in a crucial PKL encounter on Monday. Both teams are heading into the upcoming clash after suffering defeats in their respective previous fixture and would hope to end on the right side of the result. 

Fazel Atrachali-led U Mumba secured a convincing win in their first game before succumbing to a loss against last season finalist Dabang Delhi K.C. Meanwhile, Tamil Thalaivas earned a hard-fought draw in their opening fixture before losing to Bengaluru Bulls. Still early into the tournament, both teams will look to get their combination right in this game ahead of the long gruelling season. 

On paper, there is nothing to separate between the two teams although U Mumba hold a slight advantage given the all-round depth of their squad. 

TAM vs MUM Dream11 team tips for Pro Kabaddi Season 8 

Top tip: Best raider

U Mumba’s Abhishek Singh is a no-brainer for this match. One of the retained players for U Mumba ahead of the auctions, Abhishek has had a fantastic start to the new season with 24 raid points from two matches including a whopping 19 points in the opening match against Bengaluru Bulls. The raider has been selected by 71 per cent of the fantasy players and despite his high price of 17 credits is a must-have pick for this match.

Top tip: Best defender

Tamil Thalaivas’ Surjeet Singh will be a great pick for this clash. The cover defender has scored seven tackle points across two matches this season and has consistently won points for his side in crunch situations. The Services’ player is an experienced campaigner in Pro Kabaddi and will be expected to spearhead the Thalaivas defence. At 15 credits, Surejeet Singh is a worthy pick for this match. 

Top tip: Best all-rounder 

Amongst the all-rounders, Mohsen Maghsoudlou will be the best option. The Iranian is yet to set the stage on fire this year although his ability to contribute multiple points with both his offensive and defensive skills makes him a vital addition to any fantasy team. Mohsen has been selected by 88 per cent of fantasy users for this game and will be a great budget pick for 13.5 credits. 

TAM vs MUM probable starting lineups

TAM starting 7 (probable): K. Prapanjan, Manjeet Dahiya, Ajinkya Pawar, Mohit Jakhar, Surjeet Singh (captain), Sahil Gulia, Sagar Rathee 

MUM starting 7 (probable): Abhishek Singh, V Ajith Kumar, Mohsen Maghsoudlou, Harendra Kumar, Ashish Sangwan, Fazel Atrachali (captain) Rinku Sharma
