The first game is underway and scores will read as Mumba vs Gujarat:
FULL-TIME UPDATE: Gujarat Giants beat U Mumba 38-36.
36-38 13 seconds left on the clock, and Parteek Dahiya goes in the last raid of the game, and it is a do-or-die one but he has made all the calculations that even if he goes down here, Gujarat can not lose it from here. He first makes sure to consume the first 13 seconds and tries for a point, but he has been tackled this time but that does not matter this time. Parteek Dahiya has done it for Gujarat and made sure that his team takes 5 points from the game to stay alive in the tournament.
35-38 Arkam Shaikh tackles Pranay Rane to almost seal it for the Giants as there isn’t much time left on the clock for Mumba to make any comeback from here.
35-37 Pranay Rane touches Sourav Gulai this time, with only 45 seconds left on the clock.
34-37 Pranay Rane touches Manuj.
33-37 PARTEEK DAHIYA! Remember his name as this boy is going to do wonders for his team on the mat for a long long time. He does the clean-up act to enforce U Mumba with an all-out, very near to full-time, to take four points from this raid and make sure Gujarat wins it from here.

32-30 Guman Singh comes in the do-or-die raid and the Gujarat defence tried to dash him but he escaped with at least two touchpoints. The refs have given two points to Guman but he reviews it for three points, a bonus! The review is unsuccessful as the verdict of two points remains the same.
