The final hosted by prolific quizmaster, Pickbrain was swift and tense. In the early overs, it was the IIM-A team that went ahead with the law school team right behind. As the quiz progressed the team from Inst. Of Management Nirma University, started playing big hits with huge sixes and notched up 30 quick runs.

The IIM-A team and GNLU were in no mood to give in as they clawed their way back. The PDPU team was also impressive but could hit a rhythm and score beyond the odd hits. It was a three-way fare that went down the wire, GNLU losing out first taking a negative while IIM-A kept the battle on to the final question, where they miss-fired leading to Nirma University registering a famous win.

Dr. Anup Singh, Director General, Nirma University, summed up the event beautifully with an Urdu couplet that urged students to explore a world beyond their classrooms.
