In Match 32 of Pro Kabaddi 2019, will take on at Patliputra Sports Complex in Patna on Friday. have come into PKL 2019 with a fantastic raiding unit led by their star raider Maninder Singh. It’s not a one man show in the raid unit for in Pro Kabaddi 2019 as Maninder has been well supported by Mohammad Nabibakhsh and K Prapanjan. For U Mumba, Abhishek Singh has been their lead raider this season and kicked off his campaign with a Super 10 in the first match. But has not been able to keep up with the same level of performance. Abhishek in the first 3 matches averaged 7.3 raid points per match. But in the last 3 matches he has averaged only 4.3 raid points per match.

Player Battle: Maninder vs Sandeep Narwal

Sandeep Narwal has troubled Maninder Singh quite enough and he has a better head to head score against him. Sandeep Narwal has tackled Maninder seven times, of which three have come through blocks. Sandeep Narwal’s 6 of 7 successful tackles against Maninder came ahead of the baulk line. Not to forget, all his tackle points this season have come ahead of the baulk line. With Sandeep Narwal moving out of his position to create aggressive tackles and Maninder being in top form this season, this would be a mouthwatering clash to watch out for.
