Pailan Arrows are way ahead of all in the competition as they are an 100% pure Indian side. Though Pune FC, Air India and ONGC are very close to each other in regards to least foreigners contribution towards each goal, Pune FC are surely way ahead of them in regards to in terms of position in the league table which shows how much their Indian players are contributing alongside their foreign counterparts.

Its a worrying sign for Mohun Bagan as 7 out of their 8 goals have been scored by foreigners which means that 87.5% of their goals have come from them and the Indians are not contributing to their teams success. Majorly, Mohun Bagan are a one man army till now with Nigerian goal scoring machine Odafa Okolie driving their team forward. Churchill Brothers on the other side have also concern in the Indian department but overall their team is doing well as the foreign recruits have been doing extremely well with the likes of Akram Moghrabi and Beto keeping their scoreboard ticking.
