Both the teams started off the game very carefully on the mat as nobody wanted to make any kind of mistake at first place. Baahubali Siddharth Desai who was playing against his former team showed some stellar performances at the early stage. Eventually, with the help of Desai brothers, Telugu Titans marked their first All-Out of the evening on Mumba boys at 14th minute and gained a four-point lead easily.

Despite facing the painful All-Out, Mumba didn’t lose its hopes and clawed back strongly to sent Siddharth Desai off the mat. Right after Siddharth’s departure from Telugu Titans in final minutes of the first half, southerners struggled a lot to score the raid points. While in-form Mumba boys took the complete advantage of the situation and leveled up the game with 15-15 scoreline at halftime.

U Mumba came out all guns blazing in the second half to inflict their first All-Out of the game on Titans in the second minute of restart. Atrachali who was at his best form helped his team very much to rise as the fighters in the battle. As a result, Mumba inflicted its second All-Out on Titans with two minutes left for the final buzzer. At last, the one-time title lifters wrapped up the show with an impressive win.
