It was a pretty much one sided game today in Vivo Pro Kabaddi League and a worst performance you would have ever seen from U Mumba. In the Initial few minutes of the match Gujarat earn 2 All Out points and the score was 9 – 1. Shabeer Bapu and Nitin Madne failure and armature defense was the main reason why U Mumba performed so badly in this game. At the end of the first half the score was 20 – 6, Anup Kumar was fighting a lone battle in the first half
The second half continued in the same fashion with no strategy working for U Mumba. On the other had the two Iranian Fazel Atrachali and Abozar Mighani played really well in both corners to trap the U Mumba raiders. Out of 6 tackle Abozar had 5 successful tackles, with some support coming in from defender Parvesh Bhainswal and Fazel.
You just can’t walk like that on Kabaddi Mat, Poor Kashi:
Sachin and Rohit Gulia had 8 raid points each, Sachin purely exploited the inexperienced U Mumba defense. A toe touch by Sachin on Right Cover Anup Kumar showed his excellent raiding skills while the All Rounder Rohit Gullia played his natural game and supported Young Sachin.
In the end a superb display by Fortunegiants beating U Mumba by a big victory margin.
