Champions, NIT Rourkela - Abhishek and Swayambodha

The super over saw two teams go through, one each from NIT Rourkela and BIT Mesra. The final of the quiz started on a swift note with quizmaster Pickbrain taking charge and setting a different benchmark for the final.

The first couple of overs were tight with VSSUT from Burla taking an early lead. It was as the quiz progressed that other teams started to score, and the two NIT teams represented by Chinmay / Dibyaprakash and Abhishek / Swayambodha moved clearly ahead of the rest with some consecutive sixes.

The battle went down to the final over with these two NIT teams playing neck and neck. The tension mounted with one ball to go and the Chinmay / Dibyaprakash, just two runs behind Abhishek / Swayambodha. The latter, to the surprise of many, took on the final question bravely and got it right to move to the eastern zonal.
