Just be safe, this is an extraordinary time: Gurpreet Singh Sandhu

In these times of social distancing, sport is a casualty. Tournaments stand cancelled, seasons suspended and sport worldwide is almost at a virtual standstill. ESPN will be bringing you serialized accounts of Indian athletes, cooped up in homes or training camps, on what their lives are like now, with calendars scrambled, competitions on hold and plenty of time to kill.

ATK, Chennaiyin dominate ISL Team of the Season

Here is our team of the 2019-20 ISL season, picked with the intention of having a reasonable ability to actually play well together on the pitch if the hypothetical scenario ever came through. Of course, there have been minor alterations and some imagination added to the mix, but we are reasonably confident that the team makes rational sense playing in this 4-2-3-1 formation. And yes, as per ISL rules, there are only five foreigners in the team.

ATK are through to their third ISL final. They did so by beating Bengaluru FC 3-2 on aggregate after a second leg that was the antithesis of the cagey event that was the first. If the first leg could only ever have ended 1-0 -- such was the paucity of attacking play on the night -- the second, which ended 3-1, could have been a proper tennis score. It was scrappy, it was a bit helter-skelter, and it was enormously entertaining. And, given how this season has panned out, it was only natural that a...

ISL numbers: Goa tap out at 51, BFC concede after 330

A record 16 goals were scored in this season's ISL playoffs, and when the dust cleared, ATK and Chennaiyin FC were the two teams left standing. ESPN brings you some of the key numbers that ISL 2019-20 threw at us.

ATK are the first team in ISL history to have overturned a two-goal deficit in the course of the semi-finals and qualify for the final. ATK had conceded a 1-0 defeat to Bengaluru in the first leg away, and were set back by an early Ashique Kuruniyan goal; that meant ATK needed...
