The much-awaited home leg is right here as we take on U Mumba in our backyard. In coming days Thyagaraj Sports complex, Delhi will witness some thrilling encounters. After touring 8 cities, we so far had a roller-coaster kind of journey but to stabilize the cart we are here in our hometown. U Mumba had clashed with us twice in this season, where they won the 1st round and then we leveled it by the winning the second round. So now the scoreboard reads 1-1, let’s see who makes it 2-1.
Abolfazl had a good outing in the previous game, while with the likes of Tapas Pal, Sunil, Viraj and Satpal, our defence looks well balanced. Meraj Sheykh's presence on the mat will surely put us in the driver's seat. Anand Patil and Rohit Baliyan will strengthen our raiding as these two players have been in a fine touch. Overall, this home leg is very crucial for us as we are putting our best in the training, so that we can emerge out victoriously.
In our previous encounter against the same opposition, The Iranian duo Meraj and Abolfazl fetched 19 points among them, which helped us leapfrog U Mumba. We will be eyeing something similar from these two players when they come out on the mat.
Talking about U Mumba, one thing that surely hits the mind is their skipper, Anup Kumar. His calmness is like a venom for the other sides. Kashiling Adake is another big star in the opposition line-up overall they are a formidable side. But we are here to turn things around and we will accomplish this as the home support will help us achieve this feat.
