Pro Kabaddi 2019 HIGHLIGHTS, U Mumba vs Jaipur Pink Panthers: Catch all the live updates from the Pro Kabaddi 2019 match between U Mumba and Jaipur Pink Panthers through News18 Sports' live blog. Jaipur Pink Panthers thrash U Mumba 42-23 in their first match of season 7 at the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium in Hyderabad on Monday. This is Jaipur's biggest win over U Mumba. Not what U Mumba would have envisioned after their victory in the season opener. Jaipur have been smart and clinical while U Mumba have tried to be ultra-aggressive and have lost out.
U Mumba defeated hosts Telugu Titans 31-25 in their season opener and as expected their captain and defender Fazel Atrachali starred for them. Apart from Atrachali, Abhishek Singh played brilliantly for U Mumba getting a super 10 in the 16 raids he attempted. Sandeep Narwal also won four tackle points in five attempted tackles.

For U Mumba, Fazel Atrachali will be at the heart of defence once again. He showed in season 7 opener that he could keep out Siddharth Desai with much ease and his team will be looking for inspiration at him. Sandeep Narwal, the all-rounder, will be another crucial element in the team of U Mumba. Abhishek Singh will most shoulder the raiding responsibilities and he showed his might in the first game against Telugu Titans.
WARNING: Please avoid the left corner, the Sultan's at work! Can Fazel Atrachali inspire @U_Mumba to another win tonight?
Players Who Jaipur Pink Panthers Will Rely On | Captain Deepak Niwas Hooda, one of the most effective all-rounders of the league will shoulder the major responsibility of the team. Apart from him, Ajinkya Pawar, who scored 71 raid points in season 6, will be looking to continue that momentum from the previous season. Amit Hooda and Sandeep Dhull will mostly shoulder the defensive responsibility.
