Manoj Tiwary to captain East Zone squad in Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament

Manoj Tiwary is named as captain of the 15-member East Zone squad, for the all-India Inter-Zonal Twenty20 tournament for the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy is to be held in Mumbai from February 12. Tiwary is going through a bad form and he didn't play well in Irani Trophy, His poor first-class form extended to the just-concluded Interstate East Zone T20 league where his scores read 4, 1 and 39. But with former India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni ruling himself 'unavailable', Tiwary was named to lead a 15-member squad that had Jharkhand's Saurabh Tiwary as the vice-captain and Ishan Kishan as the wicketkeeper. Besides Tiwary, others to make the cut from Bengal are Shreevats Goswami, Writtick Chatterjee, Ashoke Dinda and Sayan Ghosh. As per the new format, the selection meeting was convened by former India captain and Cricket Association of Bengal president Sourav Ganguly with members of the zonal board, Arup Bhattacharya , Debashish Mohanty, Ashish Sinha, Manimoy Roy and Subhrajit Saikia.
