Guwahati/Ranchi:

Team India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni's name could not be considered for the Duleep Trophy East Zone squad as his availability could not be confirmed, Assam Cricket Association sources said.

Since his availability could not be confirmed, Orissa opener Shib Sundar Das was made the captain of the East Zone squad announced in Guwahati on Saturday, ACA sources said.

Jharkand State Cricket Association selector Jodh Singh was clueless about Dhoni's availability.

A source close to Dhoni said in Ranchi that the Indian skipper was busy with his commercial commitments and so could not be contacted.

East Zone will open their campaign against West Zone in Mumbai from January 29.
