The final saw a near head to head battle between SIBM and PES going right down to the final question. SIBM sure knew their competition and played at high values where they were sure and that helped them keep the pressure on the 2018 champs. SIBM showed great purpose and resolve as they got past defending national champions PES University in a keenly fought match at Bangalore.

Pickbrain observed that while India will have a new campus champion it sure was a great performance by the former champs to eventually finish runner-up.
