DEEP AMONG PROBABLES 
 
 
BY A STAFF REPORTER
 
Calcutta, April 22: 
Deep Das Gupta was at the Eden Gardens playing for Mohun Bagan in the CAB League championship play-off semi-final when he learnt about his maiden national call-up this afternoon from a club official.

The Bengal and East Zone wicketkeeper is among 26 probables named for the conditioning camp for the Zimbabwe tour.

“That the probables were to be named was always at the back of my mind. It’s okay, but even if I didn’t get picked I wouldn’t have been depressed,” Deep told The Telegraph.

“To be very honest, I’m not thinking of my chances (of making the final 15). It will be more of a learning experience at the camp,” said Deep, who performed decently this season with the bat and the big gloves.

His notable contributions include a fine 80 against Bihar in the Ranji Trophy and 75 versus Central Zone in the Duleep Trophy. He also got a crucial unbeaten 32 against South Zone in a low scoring tie at Agartala.
