Two teams who have been in great form had a chance to eclipse each other and go top of the table. But a mistake by Bengal Warriors raider Prapanjan in the buzzer raid of the game helped the Dabang Delhi tie the game. The last raid of the game was a do-or-die raid and a point was required by the Warriors otherwise it would have been a draw, the umpires had given it a one-point raid which meant that Bengal Warriors won the game but a successful review by Joginder Narwal helped the Dabang Delhi team tie the fixture.
