Debjit may not play Fed Cup too
East Bengal medio Debjit Ghosh’s participation in the Federation Cup is under a cloud. Debjit suffered a near fatal injury during their ASEAN Club Championship campaign in Jakarta.
According to Dr Nisith Ranjan Chowdhury, AFC medical committee member, Debjit needs “at least three weeks rest”.
As per Fifa guidelines and the international medical code on head injury, the severity of the injury will be taken into account. Subhashish Roy Chowdhury is likely to take his place in the 20-member Federation Cup squad. Two additions to the ASEAN Cup squad will be Raman Vijayan and Dipankar Roy.
The five-day all-India BSNL table tennis meet will start at the SAI complex from Monday.
