U Mumba Predicted 7: One of the better teams in the Pro Kabaddi League, U Mumba will play their seventh season, starting from 20th July 2019. Iranian player Fazel Atrachali will once again lead the team in Pro Kabaddi Season 7.
U Mumba has been the only team to have reached the finals in three consecutive seasons, in 2014, 2015, and 2016. Owned by Unillazer Ventures Pvt. Ltd., U Mumba had emerged as champions in Pro Kabaddi League Season 2, beating Bengaluru Bulls by 6 points in the final.
U Mumba participated in the finals for three consecutive seasons from season 1 to season three, however, their Kabaddi campaign from there onwards saw a decline in performance as they failed to reach the playoffs in Pro Kabaddi Season 4 and Pro Kabaddi Season 5.
U Mumba made a promising comeback in season 6, showcasing consistent performances in the league, which also saw them reach the playoffs for the fourth time in their Pro Kabaddi campaign.
Here’s a look at the predicted playing seven for U Mumba in their first match against Telugu Titans.
#1 Fazel Atrachali (Captain and Left-Corner)
Position: Defender (left-corner)
Unarguably, the best overseas defender in the history of Pro Kabaddi League, Fazel Atrachali will once again lead U Mumba in the season 7 of Pro Kabaddi League.
The Iranian defender played an influential role for Patna Pirates in Pro Kabaddi League season 4. Fazel finished as the leading defender with 52 points in 16 games, helping Patna Pirates win the title.
He will undoubtedly be one of the biggest bets for U Mumba in the upcoming season, starting from 20th July 2019.
#2 Sandeep Narwal (Right Corner)
Position: All-rounder (Right Corner)
One of the more prominent names in Pro Kabaddi, Sandeep Narwal will be the one to look out for this season. The all-rounder has now played over 100 matches in the league, boasting of more than 200 points in both raids and tackles.
Playing for U Mumba this season, Sandeep Narwal proudly sits at the number tenth position with most points in the Pro Kabaddi League.
#3 Athul MS (Right-In)

#4 Surender Singh (Right Cover)
Having played only three seasons in the league so far, young Surender Singh has become one of the most dynamic defenders in Vivo Pro Kabaddi League.
Surender Singh fired on all cylinders, scoring the most number of tackle points by U Mumba player in season five.
#5 Rohit Baliyan (Center)
Having not been picked in the inaugural season of Pro Kabaddi League, Rohit Baliyan began his campaign in Pro Kabaddi Season 2 with Telugu Titans and has only moved through the ranks from thereon.
Rohit has been part of as many as 4 franchises till now and will play for U Mumba for a second consecutive time in the league.
#6 Young Chang Ko (Left-Cover)
Position: Defender (left-cover)
The Korean defender has been around for quite some time and has also established himself as one of the most quintessential defenders in the Pro Kabaddi League.

#7 Abhishek Singh (left-in)
Abhishek Singh started phenomenally in his debut season with U Mumba, scoring 47 raid points in 15 matches, including 2 super 10s.
