The recent clash against Puneri Paltan was a tough one for the Gujarat Giants, resulting in our second defeat against them this season. Looking ahead, our focus is now on the upcoming game against U Mumba at the Patliputra Indoor Stadium in Patna. This marks our second encounter with U Mumba this season.

The previous match against Puneri Paltan was a reality check for us. Despite a strong effort from Mohammad Nabibakhsh, who fought hard to stage a comeback, we could not overcome the lead they established in the first half. It was our sixth loss of the season, but we have regrouped and are eager to get back on the winning track, starting with the game on Friday.

U Mumba, positioned sixth on the points table, have won six out of their 14 games and lost the same number. Their last game against Puneri Paltan ended in a 32-32 tie, showcasing their competitiveness. Facing a formidable opponent, we acknowledge the challenge that lies ahead.

Reflecting on our previous encounter with U Mumba, we emerged victorious in an exciting match, securing our third consecutive win of the tournament. However, we understand that circumstances have changed, and past success may not guarantee the same outcome on Republic Day. Anticipation is high for what promises to be an exhilarating match, and we are geared up for the challenge. All roads lead to an exciting showdown, and we aim to make it a memorable comeback.
