In Match 117 of the Pro Kabaddi League 2017 Season 5 of the Inter-Zone Wildcard Matches, it was the Tamil Thalaivas that edged past U Mumba in their second encounter as revenge was written in the cards. Ajay Thakur yet again managed to claim vital points in the last minute which gave the Thalaivas an edge over the Maharashtrian team. Without Anup Kumar and Kashiling Adake, U Mumba did pretty well as they dominated most of the match till Tamil Thalaivas decided to step up their game. The chances of U Mumba qualifying for the play-offs look slim as Tamil just denied them the vital points they needed. Tamil Thalaivas 38-35 U Mumba.
