It was well into the first phase that the father and son duo from Brooke Fields got into the lead. The prolific Chennai Silks were right behind them.
The other teams scored in bursts but could not find too many opportunities on the buzzer with these two teams in a neck and neck battle. Chennai Silks then came up with some really good strikes to build a marginal lead.
Brookefields, however, came back again in the same fashion and were threatening Chennai Silks to the very end. The Chennai Silks team though held their own to win the quiz.
