Mangalore United is a Mangalore based Karnataka Premier League franchise. BM Farookh and Moinuddin Bawa owns this team and coached by Nidhuvan. Manglore United (Man U) finished fourth in last edition of Karnataka Premier League.
The team won their first and only title back in 2010, thanks to a fine bowling effort. Having been put to bat first in the final, the team could only manage a total of 112 runs. In reply, Mangalore bowlers stunned the then defending champions (Provident Bangalore), to win by a ‘big’ margin of 44 runs to claim their maiden trophy.
Karun Nair who has been consistent player of Indian Premier League and have done pretty well at domestic level continued to be part of the side. The wicketkeeper-batsman is the senior-most member of the side and the ever-reliable Gautam, has IPL experience in his bag.
Ronit More, Shishir Bhavane, Nidhish Mohanram, BN Prasad, Kishore Kamath and Bhavesh Gulecha are players to watch out for, all these cricketers have been impressive in domestic and zonal tournaments.
Another positive thing about the side is the number of spin-bowling options which include three left-arm orthodox spinners – Mitrakanth Yadav, Ankit Kumar and Pranav Bhatia, apart from plenty of other spinning options too.
