The final was a brisk affair with teams interlocked in a thick battle. Teams from Seth Anandram, Seth Jaipuria and LPS Sector D were quick to get into a lead as the other teams did well but in bursts and could not hold the momentum.
The round on TCS resulted in the LPS duo of Pranshu and Himanshu edging past the others to get into a lead. The other teams pushed hard to get closer and the LPS duo took a costly negative at this stage to make the final round absorbing.
