Champions, VNIT Nagpur - Akash Yadav and Rahul Bhagat

The final saw VNIT with Akash and Rahul going for the big sixes, early on putting the pressure on all the other teams. The pace of the match was fast with teams getting onto the buzzers quickly. The IIMs and IMT did well in bursts but could not sustain momentum.

The SRCE team did well to keep pace with VNIT for the first half of the final. However, as the final over came on, VNIT stamped their authority on the match, hitting a couple of big ones, a few well-played three runs and couple of just a run to prevent others from getting past them. In the end, VNIT moved to the zonal while SRCE settled for the runner up title.

Dr. Uday Waghe, Principal YCCE, and Dr. Pravin Dakhole, Registrar YCCE were present on the occasion and gave away the prizes to the top teams.
