Kolkata:

Former India wicketkeeper Deep Dasgupta has been named the coach of the India 'Above' 19 side which will have a camp at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore from July 9-31.


India 'Above' 19 is a unique concept that is being tried out by the BCCI in order to resurrect the careers of those who are caught in the transition from colts cricket to senior cricket.

Dasgupta, who had played 8 Tests for India during the 2001-02 season, had successfully captained Bengal and is also the assistant coach of the IPL side Pune Warriors. Dasgupta also happens to be the chairman of selectors of Cricket Association of Bengal.
