With close to a 100 teams (the highest ever for this city) battling for the top slots in the final he went about his task setting a brisk pace.

The city witnessed one wild card round that was completely dominated by 6 teams from XLRI from which the top two moved into the final.

The second place was a keenly fought battle between BIT Mesra, XLRI (Mario and Chinmay) and XLRI (Mrutyunjaya and Ulaganath).
