Sunday’s grand final of the ESL India Premiership 2020 witnessed a one-sided affair between the CSGO finalists, Global Esports and BL4ZE Esports. Global Esports came out on top, winning the match and the tournament, and thus secured a spot at DreamHack Open Summer 2020: Asia.

The grand final for CSGO started on the newly updated map Vertigo. Game 1 of the BO3 series was a closely fought affair with the match going Global Esports' way, 16 -14. Global Esports dominated the first half of the map, but BL4ZE then almost mounted a second half comeback. However, with the deficit being large, they were not able to close the gap.

The star of the first map — and there were no surprises here — was entry fragger DEATHMAKER aka Debanjan Das, who has been the stellar performer for his team since the start of the tournament. In the final, he carried on his good form with 32 kills in map one, at times looking almost unstoppable. BL4ZE Esports had no answers to his entry frags and his inane ability to get kills at will and turn the game on its head.

BL4ZE Esports, however did not back down without a fight. SkRossi led the charge for them at 26 kills but given DEATHMAKER’s form, they couldn’t complete the comeback which could potentially have set up a very exciting game.


The second match of the BO3 series though went differently. Global Esports dominated outright on Dust 2, winning the match 16 -7 and the series 2-0. Thus, they became the first champions of the ESL India Premiership 2020.

Global Esports won the first half comfortably winning 10 out of the first 15 rounds and then closed out the second half by winning 6 out of the 8 rounds. Match 2 showcased just how good DEATHMAKER is at CSGO. The entry fragger once again held his own with 28 kills. With his performance, he proved that could be easily considered as India’s best CSGO player. Unfortunately for BL4ZE Esports, SkRossi, who has been playing well through their run to the final, had a bad game which ultimately led to them losing the match and the series.

This concludes the ESL India Premiership 2020 for the esport that is CSGO. Overall, it turned out to be a successful tournament for Indian esports. Things are only going to get better from here onwards with ESL India Premiership Fall 2020 coming in the near future. DreamHack Open Summer: Asia is the next big event for CSGO as an esport.
