For the Jaipur Pink Panthers it was the ability of the their captain Jasvir Singh and the stocky Rajesh to draw mistakes from the rival defence paid rich dividends. The deadly Rajesh in fact had two consecutive successful raids to his credit.

The Bengaluru Bulls kept their nose ahead till almost the dying minutes.

But in the 39th minute Jasvir Singh pulled out a successful raid within seconds and then the Panthers defense caught star raider Rohit Kumar in a do or die raid to tie the match in the last 7 seconds of the match.
