Earlier, Chennai Smashers put up a clinical display to outplay Delhi Acers 4-3 and register their second consecutive win in an exciting encounter.
Thailand's Suo Di and Kidambi Srikanth won their matches for Bengaluru, who had lost their last match against Hyderabad Hunters. However, Mumbai, who had also faced a 2-3 defeat in their last match against Chennai Smashers, scored through men's doubles pair of Mathias Boe and Vladimir Ivanov and men's singles player RMV Gurusaidutt.
In the end it was Ivanov and Liu Zi Die who earned that victory for Mumbai in the mixed doubles contest. Bangalore drew the first blood in the five-match rubber when Thailand's Suo Di surpassed former world No. 11 Han Li of Mumbai 15-9, 11-15, 15-7 in the women's singles match to register one point for her team.
