U.P. Yoddha showed great composure and planning as they beat struggling Telugu Titans 39-33. Yoddha were better in all the departments with their raiders – Pardeep Narwal (10), Shrikant Jadhav (7) and Surender Gill (7) – picking up valuable points.

Telugu Titans had a great opportunity to make a comeback by inflicting an All Out on Yoddha in the final minutes but captain Rohit Kumar’s decision to go raiding backfired. Rajnish and Ankit Beniwal scored 9 points each for the Titans who are without a win in Season 8.

In the final match of the day, U Mumba restricted Bengal Warriors to a 32-32 tie where U Mumba's Abhishek Singh (13 points) and Warriors captain Maninder Singh (17 points) both had Super 10s.
