FULL-TIME UPDATE: UP Yoddhas beat U Mumba 38-28.
38-28 A point each to both teams as Kamlesh fails to take a point, with Sandeep Narwal dashing him, but he goes out of bounds while doing so. Nothing to worry about for UP, though as the match ends with this. UP take 5 points from the game to jump into the 3rd position in the point table.
37-27 Error continues from the defence of Mumba, this time it was captain Surinder who gave his touchpoint to Pardeep.

34-24 Surrender from Guman Singh, with this UP, inflicted another all-out of Mumba to extend the lead to massive 10 points.
31-24 Ashish goes in the raid and he is the last man standing for Mumba right now, he has been tackled by the defence of UP, but wait, there is some twist, one defender goes out of bounds, so he has to go out and two points to Mumba, one for bonus and one of the defenders who went out. Ashish has to go out as he was tackled but Guman Singh comes in.
30-22 Pardeep touches Rinku to leave Mumba with one man on the mat.

24-21 SUPER TACKLE from Sumit to catch Guman for two points!
22-21 Mahipal goes in the do-or-die raid and he has been dashed out by the duo of Harendra-Surinder! A heavy tackle on Mahipal.
