The bengal team (to play Maharashtra starting Wednesday for the season
opener) has been announced. It is:
Ganguly (C), Deep Dasgupta (WK, VC), Devang Gandhi, Rohan Gavaskar,
Laxmiratan Shukla, Randev Bose, SS Paul, Saurasish Lahiri, Araminda
Das, Shubhmay Das, Ashok Deeda, Shivshankar singh, Manoj Tiwari, Sanjiv
Sanyal, Vridhiman Saha.
Manager: Paras Mhambre, Organizer: Samir Dasgupta.
Very strong team, IMO. Will be tough to beat, especially since Ganguly
is not selected to play for India. Mhambre managing Bengal?
As was posted by Sadiq in another post, the Maharashtra Cricket
Association has signed contracts with some players. Another
interesting news, one of the commercial sponsors of the Maharashtra
team is Reebok, the multi-national sports-good company, and the players
will wear Reebok logos on their unforms. All welcome changes, IMO.
