Last year, in a memorable Championship final contested between two underdogs of the tournament, after an intense normal time couldn’t produce result, Nagpur edged Kolhapur 4-3 on penalty shootout to lift the trophy. Both Nagpur and Kolhapur had crashed favourites Mumbai and Pune’s title hopes in the semi finals respectively, which was nothing short of a spectacular result.
