Match 15 and the stage was set at the inspiring city of Anand. The match kicked off with close to a hundred teams. The prelim was a teaser presented by Ms. Rashmi Furtado with teams having mixed reactions when she asked if they needed clues. The prelim led to a super over largely dominated by the IRMA teams.
The final of the quiz saw a battle between Maharaja Sayajirao University with Bhushan and Jay playing neck and neck with another team from their University with Shashank and Pranjal. The battle was close till the final over with just a run separating them.
It was in the final over that Bhushan and Jay hit a couple of good ones to get ahead and at that stage Shashank and Pranjal got one wrong to enable a win for Bhushan and Jay. The team now moves to Mumbai for the zonal and if they finish in the top two there, they would make it to the national final of the quiz.
Pickbrain commenting on the quiz said Anand as a city was always a top 10 city and that sure made the city winner, whoever it was, a significant qualifier.
