Bhutia doubtful for Durand semifinal

New Delhi:

East Bengal striker Baichung Bhutia said today that he was doubtful for the Durand Cup semifinal match against Air India tomorrow. "Most probably I won't play. I have aggravated the injury to my right calf muscle," Bhutia said. The star striker, who played a key role in India winning the silver medal in the inaugural Afro-Asian Games, said he first pulled the muscle during the Kolkata Super Division playoff match against arch-rivals Mohun Bagan last week. "I am applying ice and other medicines. Hopefully we will beat Air India and reach the final," he said looking forward to play in Monday's title clash. Bhutia scored a brace in East Bengal's 3-2 win over Indian Bank and also played a crucial role in East Bengal's 3-0 win over Dempo Sports Club yesterday. (PTI)
