Saffron United was formed with the best players of Saffron who had shown their mettle during the internal leg matches. The Final of the Summer Tournament was scheduled to be held on 28th of June, 2015.
Saffron United and Collar Search battled it out on the grounds of Kamla Nehru College Grounds, New Delhi. It was a twenty-twenty match between the two teams who were hungry for the coveted trophy

Although both the teams were closely matched, but Saffron United, under the leadership of Vibhu Satpaul, managed to outperform Collar Search on the D-Day. Precision in fielding and bowling along with strong batting attack (which includes a quick half century, by Vikram) kept Saffron in control of the game.
The Collar Search Team had played their part and almost had the cup within their grasp, only to succumb to the pressure of chasing the target. Their fielding was inconsistent and also had dropped catches.
As the Collar Search team gave way, Saffron won the match and claimed the championship.
The post match ceremony involved Award presentation, snacks and refreshments for the players and the audience alike.
In the coming months more events are planned for the energetic Saffron Team and its entire family.
