The MVP of The Grind is Savitar01 from Team Forever, coming away with Rs 25,000. The Grind featured some elite-level BGMI plays and intense competition that was a sign of things to come in the tournament.

 The Grind Week 1 saw some really cool performances from the likes of OR Esports and Orangutan Gaming, but Week 2 saw Team XO really turn on the afterburners to play very aggressively and come away with boatloads of Finishes. TSM managed to fight from the back of the pack and finish Second Place and Godlike Esports also had a major resurgence after Week 1 to finish in Third Place at the end of Week 2.

The 32 invited teams will now compete with the rest of the playing field from the In-Game Qualifiers.  Round 1 kicks off on December 16, 2021. The iQOO Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) Series 2021 has proven itself as quite the event so far, and it is only about to get more intense.
