The first few minutes went on to be dominated by the team from Mumbai with Abhishek Singh picking up important raid points.
Fazel Atrachali, captain of Mumbai in the left corner, had very little to do, as his defenders Harendra and Ashish Sangwan ensured the Bulls raiders struggled to pick the points. U Mumba forced the game’s first ALL OUT in the 8th minute and opened up a 6-point lead (115).
