The first half began with both teams trying to establish a lead. Though U Mumba were close to an All-Out soon after the game commenced, Fazel Atrachali's Super Tackle brought his team back into the game. Though both U Mumba and Haryana Steelers had strong defences, neither could dominate the scoreboard. Fazel Atrachali completed his High 5 with two minutes left to go for the match. Ravi Kumar too had four tackle points. The first half ended with a 15-15 tie.
Haryana Steelers inflicted an All-Out on U Mumba four minutes into the second half and gave themselves a 22-18 lead. U Mumba, however, made a great comeback. Ajinkya Kapre was spectacular as he executed two back-to-back two-point raids for U Mumba that gave them a 24-22 lead. Haryana Steelers got the score difference down to two points, but U Mumba's excellent defence stood firm till the end of the match. Ajinkya Kapre scored nine raid points, just one point away from a Super 10 in his debut game.
