The raiding department of the U Mumba team is good as well as experience and the corners of the U Mumba team is strong but the covers are totally average in the starting 7.
Apart from the starting 7 players, Navneet, Jashandeep Singh, Rahul Rana, Kamlesh & Shivam can appear in the middle of the match in the form of substitution players as Raider. Defenders – part from the starting 7 players, Navneet, Jashandeep Singh, Rahul Rana, Kamlesh & Shivam can appear in the middle of a match in the form of substitution players as a Raider. Defenders – Sunil Siddaghvali, Ajeet, Prince & Rahul is also can be seen as a substitution players. All-rounders – Pankaj & Mohsen Maghshodulu Jafari a good all-rounders who are going to play a big role in the reading as well as defence in the team from time to time as a substitution player.
Apart from this two more players who are part of the squad who is Corona Contingency Players ( CCP) which will be replaced when a player is found to be Corona positive.
All-rounder – Monu & Defender – Baljinder Singh both are CCP Players
If we look at the overall UMumba team, the UMumba team has more reliance on the young raiders and defenders. If the Young Raiders and defender performance are good for the team in PKL season 8 then that is beneficial for the team but if the young player does not perform well for the UMumba team, then the U Mumba team can also lose the trophy of PKL season 8.
