Yesterday, heavy lightning accompanied with rain stopped the match at the Sailen Manna Stadium, Howrah, between Chennaiyin FC and Tiddim Road Athletic Union with the former leading by 1-0. It was scheduled today, 1000 hrs onwards. However continuous rainfall since yesterday aggravated the circumstances and the match was eventually abandoned, with the teams sharing 1 point each.
This makes qualification easier for Gokulam Kerala FC who are already the group topper with 6 points. For their final match of the tournament, Chennaiyin FC will meet Air Force at Mohun Bagan Ground. Meanwhile, GKFC was supposed to face TRAU at Howrah Stadium. This match will now be held at the Training Ground 2 of the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan. Both the matches are scheduled on August 18, 1500 hrs onwards.
