Fortunegiants thrash Mumba 39-21
Ahmedabad: Gujarat raiders Sukesh Hegde, Rohit Gulla and Sachin chipped in with crucial raids as Fortunegiants outclassed U Mumba 39-21 in the fifth Pro Kabaddi League here on Friday.

It was a dominant first half performance by the league debutants as they led 20-6 at the break. After 30 minutes, Gujarat led 27-14 as U Mumba struggled to make a comeback. The hosts then inflicted two all outs in the second half and Gujarat soon wrapped the match without much ado.
