Champions, GITAM Inst. of Mgmt - Ashish Samarpit and Syed Salman

The final witnessed a powerful performance from Gayatri Vidya Parishad who got off to a quick start with some good hits. They were followed by the IIMs who came up with some good answers but seemed reluctant to play at high values.

Starting slowly the duo from Gitam with Ashish and Syed, took their time but once they got their eye in, they grew in confidence. It reflected in their willingness to take half chances too. They were soon on par with the IIM and Gayatri team and crossed them with two huge sixes.

The Gayatri boys came back well but fell short of the Gitam duo by a whisker in the end. Gitam now qualifies to represent Vizag at the zonal rounds in Hyderabad.

The chief guest, Prof. Siva Rama Krishna, Vice Chancellor, GITAM University. He advised students to keep their eyes open to learning outside the classrooms as much as they did inside. Prof. Lakshmi Prasad, Principal GIT was also present.
