Player of the Match:
Chennaiyin’s goalkeeper Majumdar was named the Hero of the Match. He made 9 saves and kept his team in the game. Majumdar was head and shoulders above the rest and commanded his box to aid his side in winning a point. A deserving award for the keeper.
He has been instrumental for Chennaiyin this season and has kept 4 clean sheets. Debjit Majumdar has certainly added his name to the list of established Indian goalkeepers.
