India was not able to make a major impact with their gameplay in the first two matches which they could have won but it ended in a draw.

The Indian Captain Sunil Chettri was again there to rescue India as he scored the winning goal against Nepal at the 82nd which turned out to be the decider ending the match in 1-0 scoreline.
While Maldives started the campaign with a bit of a bump after their loss against the Nepal National team in the first match, they made a great comeback in the next fixtures winning both of their matches against Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Their last match against Bangladesh ended in a 2-0 win for the host side as they moved up placing themselves at the top of the table. An extraordinary goal from Hamza Mohamed and a goal from the 12 yard spot by the highest scorer of Maldives, Ali Ashfaq gave the nation a glimmer of hope for their third title in the SAFF Championship 2021.
