For the World 7, it was 'Sultan' Fazel Atrachali and South Korean raider Jang Kun Lee who set the tone.

For Indian 7, 'Hi Flyer' Pawan Sehrawat was the star of the show and proved he is one of the most exciting players in the world as he added another Super 10 to his name.

As the second half started, a different World 7 came to the mat, displaying some good defensive and offensive performances by Fazal Atrachali and PKL debutant Nabibaksh.

'Iceman' Ajay Thakur made sure the World 7's score didn't sneak too close to their score with consistent raid points.
