Had to get the job done: Sreevats

East Bengal opener Sreevats Goswami who became the first player to score a century in the Bengal T20 Challenger believes that the wicket being tough cannot be an excuse for not fighting it out and getting the job done.
"No matter what giving your best is all that matters," said a tired and happy Sreevats after the tie late last night.
"The wicket's been playing differently under the sun and the lights. It's a dodgy wicket but we have to adapt. If we think the wicket is not good for the batsman then we might as well get out in the dressing room, cause we don't have many matches left. You have to come out and give it your best. If it comes out well then good otherwise there's always a next match," the experienced wicket-keeper-batsman told CAB Media.

ADVISORY



7th June 2020
Date 7th June 2020
To
1) All Affiliated Units of The Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB)
2) All participating schools and coaching centres in CAB Tournaments

Madam / Sir,
The Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) had recently organized a Video Conference comprising of Medical Committee Members who are doctors of repute and are associated with top Hospitals in the city.
After detailed discussions, it was recommended that various training programmes undertaken by the Association should not be resumed till thorough guidelines are framed by CAB and awareness programmes are organised.
Moreover, Directives, Norms and Advisories issued by the Government(s) also need to be adhered to prior to such resumption.
Furthermore, various precautionary measures like sanitization of kits, maintaining social distancing, use of disinfectant in toilets amongst other suggested steps must be implemented before resumption of any training activities.
In this context, it is pertinent to state that even The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has said that it would study guidelines at the state level and will work in sync with State Cricket Associations to chalk out a programme for skill-based training at a local level.
In view of above, the Association thought that it would be prudent to refrain from engaging in any cricket activities and / or training programmes at present till thorough guidelines are framed by it.
Based on above, the Tournament Committee of the Association decided to call off all 1st Division, 2nd Division and various Age Group Tournaments of 2019-2020 season conducted by CAB considering health and safety of the players and match officials.
While the Tournament Committee has recommended abandoning all other tournaments of the Association for the season 2019-2020, meetings of District Committee, School Committee and College Committee are being convened later this week to discuss and take final decisions with regard to the District, School, University and College Tournaments.
It is further informed that we would soon be framing the guidelines prior to organizing any coaching / training sessions. Once such guidelines are framed, we would share it with you to enable you to undertake similar measures prior to commencement of training programmes by you for the Benefit and Safety of the young budding talents as well as others associated with cricket.
We expect to receive Support and Cooperation from all concerned in this matter in the larger interest of the cricketers belonging to the State and also to avoid possibilities of any spread of Covid-19.

Thanking you
Yours faithfully,

Avishek Dalmiya
President

Anustup lead Bengal fightback against Karnataka



29th February 2020
At 67 for 6, Karnataka thought they had done the job 15 minutes past lunch break on the opening day of the semi-final match against host Bengal at Eden Gardens today. They had, however, not taken one Anustup Majumdar into account who scored a career defining 120 not out as Bengal reached 275 for nine.
Aided by the fast improving Shahbaz Ahmed and batting revelation Akashdeep, the pint-sized all-rounder Anustup Majumdar plotted a recovery that looked classy and audacious at the same time. The voices of the 5000 odd people, who had gathered to witness Bengal prowl, once again found tongue as they said ...picture abhi baki hai mere dost!!
When Anustup came out to bat, Bengal's batting looked like the ruins of Mohenjo Daro, that had once raised hope but was ravaged by the marauding trio of Prasidh Krishna, Abhimanyu Mithun and Ronit. But that hardly made any difference to his life. Anustup got about collecting runs, shoring up boundaries, knocking in the gaps for twos and showing glimpses of his skillset with flashing drives, elegant cuts and controlled hooks.
