Australia’s greatest-ever scorer Tim Cahill has made his Indian Super League debut for Jamshedpur in a 2-2 draw with Bengaluru overnight.
The 38-year-old started in a lone striker’s role for the visitors, getting through 72 minutes before he was replaced.

It turned out to be a dramatic clash in Bangalore, with three goals coming inside the last nine minutes.
Trailing 1-0, Jamshedpur draw level with nine minutes left when 16-year-old Gourav Mukhi outmuscled Albert Serran and then produced a clinical finish.
The hosts regained the lead with two minutes left Sunil Chhetri struck but Cahill’s Jamshedpur stole a point in the fourth minute of stoppage-time as Sergio Cidoncha finished off some great play by Mario Arques.
Former Brisbane Roar Championship-winning midfielder Erik Paartalu played a full game for Bengaluru, who also had ex-Wanderers playmaker Dimas Delgado on the bench.
The Aussie legend will play his first home match in two weeks’ time when they take on ATK.
Cahill will play one final match for the Caltex Socceroos when they host Lebanon in Sydney on November 20.
