Dream11 MUM vs JAI Pro Kabaddi League 2019 (PKL 19) Prediction
The match 5 of the PKL 2019 season will see high-flying U Mumba take on Jaipur Pink Panthers. U Mumba started their season with a thumping 31-25 victory over hosts Telugu Titans in the opener. Abhishek Singh was the star of the evening having scalped 10 points, all from raids. They will be looking forward to gain momentum from the first victory.
Pink Panthers, on the other hand, will be raring to make a positive start to the campaign. The 2018-19 season ended in disappointment for the team, having finished in the fifth position. More than the finish, the Panthers rued at the amount of points they leaked. This was visible in their lowly Points Difference of -59. The Abhishek Bachchan-owned side bought back ankle-hold specialist Deepak Hooda for a hefty Rs. 50 lakhs in the subsequent auctions to boost the defence. Only time will tell if the move was indeed smart.

Dream11 Tips and Tricks U Mumba vs Jaipur Pink Panthers
Defenders: We are going with 4 defenders this time. Fazel Atrachali becomes our first choice defender for obvious reasons. He was one of the best defenders last season and was crucial in the U Mumba’s first game as well. He’ll be joined by fellow defender Surinder Singh who scored two tackle points in the opening game. Pink Panthers’ new signing Amit Hooda may also be a good choice here. Lastly, we are going with Jaipur Pink Panthers’ SK Dhull and Mumba’s H Vardhan to complement our defensive quartet. While the former is the team’s best defender, the latter is a very economical be highly effective player.
All-rounders: Deepak N Hooda is our sole choice for the all-rounder position and it isn’t surprising why. The player was last year’s best all-rounders, having scored a massive 208 points. In fact, we can recommend him to be your captain considering his impact in both attack and defence. If you wish, you can add Sandeep Narwal as well at the expense of a defender.
Raiders: Rohit Baliyan and Abhishek Singh are our two choices in the raiding department. The duo, especially the latter, was elemental in U Mumba’s victory over Telugu Titans and the same will be true against Pink Panthers.
My Dream11 Team
Fazel Atrachali (VC), Surinder Singh, SK Dhull, H Vardhan, Deepak N Hooda (C), Rohit Baliyan, Abhishek Singh.
U Mumba are the undoubted favourites to win this particular contest. They are a much balanced team and have momentum behind them. Jaipur Pink Panthers struggled with their defence last year while the raiding performance was satisfactory at the best. They did not have a great outing in the Auctions as well meaning a lot will rest on star player Deepak N Hooda’s broad shoulders once again.
Predicted Winner: U Mumba
