Calcutta: Devang Gandhi will lead Bengal in the Ranji Trophy tie against Tamil Nadu beginning in Thirunelveli on Sunday. Devang and Arindam Das were called in absence of Rohan Gavaskar and Deep Dasgupta.
While Deep has been picked for the Australia-bound national squad, Rohan has been named in the India A team to take on Sri Lanka A. Devang missed the last tie owing to family commitments.
