Profile

From the village of Naichanpur, about three hours from Kolkata, Ashok Dinda was spotted early by Atal Dev Burman, a coach, after bowling a few overs in the nets. Dinda, who said he could not afford staying back, was taken in by the coach and soon received a basic contract with Kalighat club and a stint with the Australian Institute of Sport. He made his first-class debut for Bengal in 2005, and impressed many with his consistent pace, generated from an exaggerated leap into his delivery stride.
