India retain team for
Deep Dasgupta survived a possible
sack for poor wicket keeping on Friday as India named an unchanged
14-member squad for the third and final cricket Test against
England, beginning in Bangalore on December 19.
The national selectors met in Ahmedabad on Friday under the
chairmanship of Chandu Borde and decided against effecting any
change in the team.
After the meeting, Borde told news persons that the selectors had discussed the names of alternative wicketkeepers but decided to stick to Dasgupta as there is just one match remaining in the series.
Dasgupta had a horrendous time behind the wickets in
the ongoing second Test and missed several catches and even a stumping chance.
