U Mumba and Jaipur Pink Panthers’ match exploded in the closing moments of the match. With Jaipur defending well throughout the match, keeping Mumba’s attack at bay, the match was edging towards Jaipur’s side who went into the second half with a healthy lead.

An all-out was next to follow by U Mumba to take their side to a 39-32 win.
The second match of the day was a much one-sided affair with Bengaluru Bulls trashing a sorry Tamil Thalaivas unit. Riding on Pawan Kumar’s exploits, the Bulls eased to a comfortable48-37 win. Pawan produced the raiding performance of the season, using his smart gameplay to record 20 raid points before having to go off injured in the second half. Despite Ajay Thakur rallying back with his own 20 raid points for the Thalaivas, they were hurt badly by a poor defensive performance that saw them record just 5 tackle points.
