After suffering a defeat in their opening game, they made a strong comeback by grabbing two consecutive wins, with the most recent one coming against UP Yoddha 32-29.
On the other hand, U Mumba hasn’t been consistent with their performances this season and are having a rollercoaster journey. The Mumbai-based franchise are standing at the sixth spot in the PKL 8 points table having accumulated nine points in three games. They started their campaign with a thumping victory but followed it with a loss and then a 30-30 draw in their most recent game against Tamil Thalaivas.
