Maharashtra is into the finals with a thrilling 35-34 win over Karnataka!

In the end, Rishank brought all his experience into play in the final raid, the DO OR DIE raid and picked an important running hand touch to help Maharashtra seal a spot in the finals! What a game!

What an encounter this has been. Maharashtra ran away with the lead in the first half but Karnataka came out all guns blazing in the second half to tie scores with just under five minutes left in the game.

DO OR DIE for Maharashtra! He scores with a touch on the right corner! 

What scenes at the Gachibowli Stadium! Rishank has won it for his team!

Just over thirty seconds to be played and the scores are level.

Karnataka call in for a final minute time-out.

SUPER TACKLE for Maharashtra! Prapanjan has been pinned down and now the scores are level with just over a minute to be played!
...
DO OR DIE for Nilesh Salunke! And he has been thrown down on the mat! 
...
Prashant Rai just walks along the half line, Karnataka playing with time here. 
...
FIrst defence and now a SUPER RAID for Sukesh Hegde! Gets two touch points and a bonus point! 

What a match Sukesh is having!
...
WOW! What a stunning effort from Sukesh Hegde! Rishank ran towards him at pace, he put in a double thigh hold and pinned him down!
...
Prashant Rai picks up a bonus point!
...
Rishank Devadiga in for the DO OR DIE raid. 

OH NO! Jeeva slips into the lobbies and gift wraps an easy point for Maharashtra!

Jeeva Kumar has been shown the green card for arguing against the umpire's decision. 
...
Karnataka down to just three men. 
...
The Maharashtra defence envelope over Prapanjan! Big blow from Karnataka!
...
One technical point in favour of Karnataka!

...
Schoolboy error from Shabeer! Jogs back into the court without a point but that was a DO OR DIE and he has to go out.
...
Rishank picks up one point! Looked like a super raid to the naked eye, but it's just one point. 
...
DO OR DIE raid for Nilesh and he perishes!

Excellent presence of mind from the Karnataka defenders as Nilesh steps into the lobbies without a touch but the defenders go nowhere near him. 
...
What strength from Prapanjan! Powers his way through a dash from Vishnu Landge to collect another point. 
...
Time-out has been called for by the teams. 

Ten minutes left on the clock and the lead is four points in favour of Maharashtra. 
...
Prapanjan extracts revenge! Bonus plus touch point for the lanky raider!
...
RIshank Devadiga continues to motor along with points! One more point for the skipper!
...
Shabeer is off to the benches too! Back to back tackle points to Maharashtra!
...
Sukesh Hegde picks up a bonus but he's been dashed off the court! One point each!
...
Rishank picks another point! Gets a running hand touch on Darshan. 
...
Prapanjan continues to have a good game! Wards off the challenge from the defender and dives back into his own half. 
...
Rishank claims a point on a Karnataka defender and he has been awarded the point! 

But he's been given a green card for excessive appealing. 
...
ALL-OUT on Maharashtra! 

A little war of words on the mat but the points have been awarded to Karnataka. What a comeback this has been in the second half from Karnataka!
...
Shabeer gets a touch on the right corner and now just the one man left on the mat for Maharashtra!
...
The Karnataka defence now comes into play! Nitin Madane has been sent off to the bench!
...
Prapanjan strikes yet again! What celebrations! Gets a toe touch on Rishank Devadiga and scoots away into his own half!
...
SUBSTITUTE!
Sachin Shingade has now been introduced into the game for the first time from Maharashtra!
...
Now Shabeer strikes! Vishnu Landge comes in with the high block, Shabeer takes him along beyond the half-line. 
...
Oh no! Darshan goes it with an unwanted ankle hold which was very weak and Nitin Madane easily made his way away from that hold. 
...
Prashant Rai strikes first blood in the second half with an important two-point raid! Good start for Karnataka!
...
The second half has commenced!
...
An exciting second-half awaits! Can Karnataka make a comeback or will Maharashtra continue to assert their dominance? Stay tuned!
...
With the scoreline reading 22-11 in favour of Maharashtra at half-time, Karnataka will have a lot to ponder upon if they plan to make a comeback in the second half. 

The raiding and defence department has worked in cohesion for the team from the North while Karnataka's woes have been compounded with Shabeer Bapu's inefficiency to pick points at pace although he has been thrust to go in for a majority of the raids. 
...
The whistle has been blown to signal half-time and Maharashtra has scored exactly double of Karnataka's score with the scoreline reading 22-11.


...
Jeeva Kumar screams his lungs out as he throws Rishank Devadiga off the court! Frustration showing?
...
Shabeer finally scores a point after a series of empty raids with a bonus. 
...
The lead has now swelled to 22-9 in favour of Maharashtra with just a little more than a minute left on the clock. 
...
Second ALL-OUT on Karnataka! Poor poor defending or should I say, excellent raiding from Nilesh?

Goes in deep on the right corner, evades the diving ankle hold and brushes off the dash from the left chain to collect three points to his total and five total points for Maharashtra!
...
Green Card has been shown to Vikas Kale. 
...
Karnataka down to just three men on the mat.
