But the cut-throat competition continued as the Ahmedabad team turned the tide in their favor in the second and fourth sets.
Both the teams were racing up their scores to win. Experiencing major setback in the team’s performance, BlackHawks Hyderabad called for Super Point to level the scores after the first Technical Time Out (TTO). But this move went in vain.
Where a Super Serve from Dilip Koiwal gave Ahmedabad a lead by 11-10 and on the other hand, an error from Dilip and skipper Ranjit Singh gave away an inadvertent advantage to the opponent Hyderabad team.
This precarious battle finally went to the decider, and Captain Clark along with Rohit Kumar and Amit Kumar came out at the forefront and helped to tip the scale in favor of Hyderabad.
Though Ahmedabad tried to make a tremendous comeback, Rohit pulled things back for Hyderabad, and eventually, Black Hawks Hyderabad emerged as the winner.
