The final quickly transcended into a tight battle with all teams scoring well. The KIIT team tried their best to get ahead but lost 'crubits' every time they gained to not find the momentum.
The XIMB duo of Rohit and Amit kept scoring at regular intervals and that helped them stay ahead of the rest, though they did not have big margins. The AIIMS team too played their hearts out, but missed by a whisker. It came down to a tie-breaker for the runner up position, between them and KIIT with Siddharth and Alankar which the former won.
The XIMB team held their own and did not take big risks, playing well within themselves to win the title. They travel to Kolkata for the zonal.
