Thursday’s CS:GO matches brought out the best out of two teams, Global Esports and BL4ZE Esports, both of whom progressed to the Grand Finals of ESL India Premiership 2020.

The first match of the day between Global Esports and Phoenix Esports in a BO3 series going Global Esports way ended 2-0, with Global Esports winning Map 1 Mirage 16-11. DEATHMAKER (Global Esports) led the way at 25 kills at 105 average damage per round (ADR) with RexM (Phoenix Esports) being a close second at 22 kills.

Map 2 also went Global Esports way with the teams playing on Dust 2. The match went into overtime with Global Esports taking the win with the scoreline 19 -17. DEATHMAKER again led the charts with 35 kills at 102 ADR ending the game with a high kill count of 60 kills at the end of the series, making him the MVP of the series. Having single handedly carried Global Esports to the final, DEATHMAKER is one of the players to keep an eye out for in future tournaments.

The second match of the day between BL4ZE Esports and Team Wolf in a BO3 ended with BL4ZE Esports progressing to the Grand Final of ESL India Premiership 2020. BL4ZE Esports won match 1 16-10 at Nuke with Huntr (Team Wolf) leading the kill charts at 27 kills. However, it was still not enough to help Team Wolf secure the first match of the series as they came up against a well rounded BL4ZE team performance.


Coming to Map 2, BL4ZE Esports edged Team Wolf in a closely fought overtime match which ended 19-17, with ritz_shah ending the match as top fragger with 32 kills. BL4ZE Esports showed immaculate teamwork with kills all across the board to help secure the 2nd match of the series.

Interestingly, both sets had maps which went into overtime with the common factor being Dust2. Hence, it will be interesting to see how both teams choose their final map picks going into the BO3 Grand Final. Considering the form that some players are showing, it is poised to be a classic, keep a lookout for players like DEATHMAKER (Global Esports) and skRossi (BL4ZE Esports) who have a lot at stake here with the winner earning 5.25 lakh in prize money and also securing a spot at DreamHack Open Summer 2020.
