In November, I had a chance to go to a football match (Indian Super League-ISL) between Chennai and North East United in Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Chennai with my colleague cum friend Nats. Chennai being the defending Champions didn’t perform well in the 2016 edition with most of the key players injured, marque players suspended for this edition. Chennai took the lead and dominated the match right from the beginning but North East United gave a tough fight till the last minute by scoring a goal in the extra minute of the second half and equalizing the match by 3-3. Chennai finished at 7th position, Atletico de Kolkata were crowned champions for the second time in three editions of ISL. This League is definitely the one to watch out for in the next decade.
