Gujarat ends win drought and U Mumba defeat Tamil Thalaivas


The last day of the Chennai leg of Pro Kabaddi league season 7 saw the Gujarat Fortunegiants defeating the Patna Pirates thus ending their six-match win drought courtesy a strong performance by the defence and some horror mistakes by the Patna defence. On the other hand U Mumba overcame an early deficit to defeat the hosts Tamil Thalaivas at the Jawaharlal Nehru Indoor Stadium in Chennai.

Match 54: Gujarat Fortunegiants vs Patna Pirates (29-26)

The Patna Pirates had started the game on a positive note but lethargic performance in the second half by the Patna defense and dependency on Captain Pardeep Narwal led to downfall of the Patna Pirates. The Patna skipper had started the game on a positive not by scoring 7 points in the first half, but the Gujarat Defense found a way to keep the star raider quiet. The Fortunegiants raider Rohit Gulia scored a super-10 to help the two times runner-ups defeat the Patna Pirates.

Match 55: Tamil Thalaivas vs U Mumba (24-29)

A lackluster performance by the Thalaivas led to their continuous disappointing performance in the tournament, Thalaivas finished their home leg without any victories but finished with one tie. U Mumba played well on Thalaivas weakness and MS Athul was the wrecker in chief for the season 2 champions. Harendra Kumar complemented the Mumba defence well.

The caravan of Pro Kabaddi League season will now move to Delhi where the hosts Dabang Delhi will face defending champions Bengaluru Bulls and Jaipur Pink Panther will face Telugu Titans.
