44-35 And that is how it ends. It has been Bengaluru Bulls all the way as the Thalaivas never saw things going its way. Kashi and Sehrawat, both, had a terrific night with Sehrawat getting 14/14 raids right.

Stick with us, as we will soon be back with a Goyat-Atrachalli mega-clash.

44-35 A super tackle by the Tamil Thalaivas, but again, that comes when the game has already slipped out from the side's hands. A thing we are getting to see happen again and again with this side this season. Just the lone victory to show for this time.

Kashiling Adake, who did not have a good last season, has shown what he is capable of this time around.

42-31 A do-or-die raid from Athul, which at first seemed to be converting into an easy point, goes in vain. The Bulls is just too good for the Thalaivas here.

41-31 Thalaivas with a super tackle here. Chillar does the damage, but a little too late?

41-29 Adake taking all of his time. Returns with no points.

41-29 Pawan Sehrawat raids, and manages to take two points home. That's been the story of the night.

38-28 Bengaluru raiders all in for slow raids now with six minutes remaining on the clock.

36-28 Athul gets rid of the right corner, Jasmer Singh Gulia.

A 10-point deficit here. Sehrawat and Adake have done most of the damage.

Ajay Thakur, out, injured. Timeout called by the coach.

36-26 Ajay Thakur, more or less the lone fighter for the Tamil Thalaivas, in some sort of discomfort here to add to the Thalaivas' woes. A stretcher being brought in for him.

34-25 Bad work by Mahendra there. All the Bulls needs to do now is defend. He tries to grab Athul from the front but he fights his way out.

33-25 Athul with a quick raid as he gets the right corner. Quick points are what the Thalaivas need now to stay alive.

32-24 Not sure what Ajay Thakur was up to but he walked right upto Jasmer Gulia. That's like a free point to Bulls.

31-24 Jasmer Gulia has been shown a Green card.

30-24 Ajay Thakur with an empty raid. The Thalaivas must get working now.

30-24 Athul, the culprit as he uses his elbow as Kashi raids. Shown the Green card.

30-23 Athul MS with an exceptional effort as he fights his way to the line.

29-20 Kashi, the man of the day, raiding again. But, unfortunately, he gives in too easy to Gopu. That's the first 'all out' inflicted on the Bulls today.

27-16 Ajay Thakur seems to be the only one from the Thalaivas' squad giving in all that he has. A point there.

Kashiling Adake has contributed 10 of the 25 points that Bulls has.

25-14 That's it for the first half. A healthy 11-point lead for the Bulls, with Pawan Sehrawat pocketing the last point.

24-14 Warning to Mahender Singh as he is shown a Green card.

24-12 Ajay Thakur still looking for the left corner. Gets the cover defender instead.

24-10 Pawan Sehrawat means business here. A strong backhold sees Sukesh Hegde down.

22-10 Ajay Thakur meanwhile does his job and gets the left corner.

21-7 Sukesh is the raider. Adake does a fine job as he gets a strong hold . One point to Bengaluru.

20-7 Bengaluru Bulls clearly taking it away. That's the second All- Out now.

15-6 Rohit Kumar doesn't need to do much here. Pawan and Adake doing the job.

14-3 Tamil Thalaivas leaking more points. Pawan Sehrawat with a super raid again. What a show of class! 4 points.

9-3 Sukesh Hegde having a good day here. Gets rid of Mahender Singh.

6-2 That's the end of Ajay Thakur. He is tackled successfully by the Bengaluru defenders on the left.

4-2 Bonus point from Ajay Thakur for Thalaivas.

4-1 What a poor start from Thalaivas' defence here. Four defenders go for Kashiling Adake but he manages to reach the mid point line.

0-1 Sukesh Hegde gets a successful raid to start things off for Thalaivas.
