That's all from this thrilling encounter! A nail-biting win for the Bengaluru Bulls puts a fitting end to the season!

We have had a great time bringing you all the updates from the Pro Kabaddi League Season Six and on behalf of fellow colleague Gaurav Kadam, this is Prasen Moudgal signing off! 

Tune in to Sportskeeda for all the post-season articles and much more. Until next time, Ciao and have a great year!

The Bulls have finally managed to crack the algorithm for success as they have pushed one step further from the second season and clinched their first ever title in six seasons!

A top effort from Gujarat though, a team under the tutelage of Manpreet Singh, as they put in their best foot forward but were unable to get across the final hurdle.
Let's take a moment to soak in the effort from Pawan Sehrawat. Top raider of the season, assured of the 'Green Sleeve' ahead of qualifiers and produces his best ever-performance in the history of the league with 22 raid points from 25 raids!

The youngster was instrumental in helping the Bulls erase the seven-point deficit and in the process also effected an all-out on Gujarat to seal the deal in the final minutes of the game.
