The right-arm fast bowler is next scheduled to play the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament, which gets underway on Thursday, February 21. Bengal will play their opening match of the extravaganza against Mizoram in Cuttack.
However, his chance of participation in the league has come under clouds as he got himself injured during a warm-up match on Monday at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. The speedster churned out a full-length delivery and batsman Vivek Singh muscled it down the ground with all the power he had, Unfortunately, the leather went and smacked the 34-year-old Dinda on the forehead.
