In return CBI responded with couple of good movements, an attempt from troy was blocked away by the defender only for the ball to fell in front of Russel however the resulting went straight in to the keeper Rohit Patil. However not long after, CBI were awarded a penalty for a handball inside the box. Troy D’souza made no mistake in converting the spot kick to bring the score on level terms at break.
