Here are our previews for Day 14.

Match 33: U Mumba vs Bengaluru Bulls

U Mumba won their last game against Haryana Steelers and have three wins and two losses so far. Surinder Singh and Co. are currently positioned in sixth position on the points table and will look to continue the winning momentum. Guman Singh has been the most threatening raider for U Mumba with 37 raid points and will look to improve his numbers. Jai Bhagwan and Ashish will want to step up and take the responsibility as well with the two raiders scoring 23 and 20 raid points respectively. Skipper Surinder Singh and Rinku have been key for U Mumba in defence as they have scored 14 tackle points each this season. Harendra Kumar and Kiran Magar have scored six tackle points each and will look to up their game. 

Bengaluru Bulls, on the other hand, will be high on confidence as they head into this game after a win against Tamil Thalaivas in the last match. With three wins and two losses, Bengaluru Bulls are placed in fifth position in the standings. Bharat has been their best raider with 45 raid points in Season 9. He has been supported well by Vikash Kandola who has scored 42 raid points. Neeraj Narwal has scored 14 raid points and will also be expected to help Bharat and Kandola in attack and enhance their game. Saurabh Nandal has been the chief of defence for the Bulls with 15 tackle points and has been assisted well by Aman and Mahender Singh with 12 and 10 respectively.

U Mumba vs Bengaluru Bulls head-to-head

U Mumba and Bengaluru Bulls have faced each other in 16 matches. Out of these, U Mumba have won 12 matches while Bengaluru Bulls have won four matches.

Match 34: Jaipur Pink Panthers vs Telugu Titans

Jaipur Pink Panthers have shown brilliant form to make it four wins in a row after losing their first game in the league. Arjun Deshwal has been a reliable force for the Panthers in attack with 53 raid points. There has been a lack of support in the raiding department and he would expect V Ajith Kumar, Bhavani Rajput and Rahul Chaudhari to contribute more often to have a solid attack unit. In defence, captain Sunil Kumar is playing his part and has been their most trusted defender with 19 tackle points. He has been complemented well by Ankush who has scored 16 tackle points. Abhishek KS and Sahul Kumar have scored seven tackle points apiece and will be hoping to deliver on a consistent basis.

Telugu Titans, on the other hand, are placed at the bottom of the points table with one win and four losses. Vinay has scored 29 raid points for the Titans and is their top-scorer. Seasoned campaigners like Siddharth Desai and Monu Goyat have chipped in with 27 and 22 raid points respectively. Telugu Titans’ defence has got some work to do and will be eying to come up with a combined effort. Surjeet Singh has been the top defender for Telugu Titans with 10 tackle points. Vishal Bhardwaj and Parvesh Bhainswal who have scored 6 tackle points each will also look to add more value to the Telugu Titans’ defence.
