The Pro Kabaddi League is heating up for the playoffs

Former U Mumba champions will fight for a place in the Pro Kabaddi League playoffs against UP Yoddha here on Thursday.

UP Yoddha, who will play his last game of the season, has destiny in his hands. A win should be enough to seal their progress in the knockout phase, while nothing but a win will sustain Mumbai’s chances in the playoffs.

Their main striker Abhishek Singh struggled, especially in Super Tackle situations, in their performance against the Jaipur Pink Panthers and it may be time for the team to give Ajith Kumar a bigger role.

Pardeep Narwal on the other hand, had a terrible day. He will be their main striker with the support of Surender Gill and Shrikant Jadhava.

The second match of the evening will be another playoff match between the Bengaluru Bulls and Haryana Steelers.

Haryana can also almost guarantee a place in the Playoff by winning, but the fate of Bengaluru will be decided by the teams around them.

With 63 points from 20 matches, Haryana Steelers has a realistic chance of second place if Delhi (2nd in the table) drop points. They are currently third in the table, and placing in the Top 2 can save them from elimination matches.
