After a while the monkeys left (or were removed) from the football pitch and the match finally started. It was turning out to be a pretty exciting contest as well, with two early goals setting the tone.
Match started, 10 minutes and already 1-1. What a start. Goal scored by Ushman Ashique.
After a long while of waiting and trying to drive the monkeys away the organizers gave up. The monkey menace was too much for them so they decided to abandon the match and decided to hold it at the Kalyani Municipal Stadium on the next day.

While in the recent CFL (Premier Division A) season we have seen matches getting abandoned due to thunderstorm, excessive rain and bad light, a match abandoned due to monkeys is a rare occurence even in India. Here's hoping we don't encounter too many incidents like this in the future.
