It was a dream game for the defending champions as everybody contributed to the win, including the substitutes.

It was Rishank Devadiga (7), captain Anup Kumar (6) and Rakesh Kumar (5) who led the assault, with solid back up from the defence where Iranian Fazel Atrachali continued to impress. Mohit Chhillar and Vishal Mane were also in their beastly best.

That Surjeet Narwal, the rival skipper and main raider, went without a point and was out of the court for longer than he was in it, showed the ruthless approach by U Mumba.

Only Pawan Kumar could put up some resistance with four raiding and one tackle point for Bengaluru Bulls.
