The Mariners failed to get any goal in the first half. But they buckled up and strutted their stuff in the second 45. Came out resolved and Kromah finally delivered.

All done and Mohun Bagan begin their campaign with a 3-0 win.

Nikhil Kadam with the delivery again. To the far post where the ball gets to Chesterpaul. He takes a touch and puts it in a dangerous area. Headed towards goal but that is again cleared off the line.

Both teams on the pitch now. And we are minutes away from the action.

18:11 (IST)14 AUG 2017

18:10 (IST)14 AUG 2017

The referee is back on the pitch but the player are yet to appear from the dressing rooms.

18:10 (IST)14 AUG 2017

The double Ks - Kamo and Kromah have looked fairly listless so far. Whilst Azharuddin and Lyngdoh have threatened down the wings time and again, their performances too have not been up to par.

17:55 (IST)14 AUG 2017

It's been a frustrating end to the first 45 minutes of MB's new season. 

What has really stood out so far has been MB's lack of clear cut chances.

17:54 (IST)14 AUG 2017

And that's it. The referee finally blows the whistle to bring the first half to an end.
