U Mumbai and Gujarat Giants shared the spoils in a fun 24-24 tie in the Pro Kabaddi League Season 8 match at The Sheraton Grand here on Tuesday.

With seven points, Gujarat’s star of the night Ajay Kumar got a crucial point at the last minute to tie his team. Both teams will look back on the match and think that if they were a little more active they could have won. Ajit Kumar was the best raider for Mumbai in the low scoring game and Rinku also got a high five in his right corner.

Gujarat got off to a strong start with Rakesh S and Ajay Kumar handling most of the raiding duties. They took the most advantage of the unstoppable U Mumbai defense in the opening minutes. At the other end, Abhishek Singh and Ajit Kumar took turns to raid the Mumbai team.

Ajit seemed to have recovered from a back injury earlier in the season and was moving around Matt effortlessly. But it was Gujarat’s defense that dominated the first half with three tackle points over U Mumbai. At break time, the score was 13-10 and no one was out.

The main theme of the first 10 minutes after the restart was Mumbai’s lack of conviction. The reluctance to go for tackles and slow movement in the raid means that Gujarat has a 5-point lead outside for the first time.

Girish Ernak, Parvesh Bhainswal and Sunil started getting more tackle points as Mumbai coach Rajguru Subramaniam encouraged Ajinkya Kapoor to carry out more raids.

When Gujarat was all out, Rinku made a wonderful super tackle to give Mumbai momentum. Ajit Kumar then carried out a series of successful raids to equalize points for Mumbai.

Rinku got his high five and Abhishek Singh got one point in the do-or-die raid to give Mumbai the lead in less than 2 minutes. But Ajay Kumar got one point in the final attack of the match for Gujarat to give his team a tie.
