CAB seeks report
Bengal’s poor performances in the Moin-ud Dowlah Gold Cup in Hyderabad and the JP Atray Memorial meet in Chandigarh has shaken up the Cricket Association of Bengal, who are now waiting for a managers’ report before deciding on necessary steps.
The CAB, who had sent two different teams to the two meets with the intention of having a look to the probables ahead of the Ranji Trophy, were in for a rude shock as the team failed to progress beyond the group stages in both the tournament.
The managers for both the meets — Robert Rozario (Moin-ud Dowlah) and Atanu Ghosh (JP Atray) — have been asked to submit detailed reports. Also up for discussions are the captains’ — Ranadeb Bose (Moin-ud Dowlah) and Laxmi Ratan Shukla (JP Atray) — performances.
East Bengal president Pranab Dasgupta, coach Subhas Bhowmick and the club’s UB representative Amit Sen had a meeting on Monday. “We’ve terminated the foreign trio’s (Berger, Sebastien and Edmilson) contract after going through each and every detail ,” Dasgupta said.
He also said that the club hoped to recover some of its expenses incurred on availing the services of the flop foreigners through the sell of souvenirs which will be introduced soon.
