Dalmiya is worried man

Jagmohan Dalmiya, the Cricket Association of Bengal president, has expressed concerns over Bengalís poor performance in this seasonís Ranji Trophy. Precisely, itís the batting that worries Dalmiya.

ďOur bowlers are doing their job. Itís the batsmen who are failing repeatedly. Besides, I was really disappointed when they couldnít finish off Gujarat and secure full points despite having reduced them to 18 four five (at the Eden),Ē he said on Thursday.

The extension of coach Woorkeri Ramanís contract, however, depends on the teamís performance in the Vijay Hazare Trophy, Dalmiya added. ďWeíve to sit for a meeting and assess everything once the Vijay Hazare Trophy is over. Whether the present coach will continue or not will be decided after that period only.Ē

Meanwhile, former India off-spinner and international umpire Srinivas Venkataraghavan will sign the certificates that will be given to blood donors at the CAB Foundation Day, on February 3.
