Mukesh set out to join squad
17th November 2016
Mukesh Kumar had made his debut at Lahli during the Ranji Trophy one season back. A year later he is all set to join the squad at the same venue with a bright chance of making it in the playing eleven considering the nature of the pitch and Bengal’s eagerness of snatching 6 points from Baroda, languishing at the bottom of the group.
Post a good performance against Baroda in the C. K Nayudu tournament in which he took four wickets for 37 runs, he looks to be included in the side as the third seamer with veteran Ashoke Dinda. The toss up will be between Amit Kuila and Sayan Ghosh.
Mukesh was injured during a practice session in the Jadavpur university Salt Lake campus ground, before the start of the Ranji Trophy, leading to his droop from the team, “It was disappointing when I was pulled out of the team due a figure injury. But it is good that I will join team tomorrow. I am very happy with the way I played in the C. K. Nayudu trophy,” said Mukesh.
Asked if he has any chance of playing the next match, he said, “Lahli has green top wicket. It will support seam bowling. If I get a chance to play there, I will give my hundred per cent for my team,” he said. Mukesh leaves town tomorrow.
