Ashok Dinda suffered a head injury while attempting a catch during a practice session ahead of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata, on Monday. The 34-year old fast bowler plays for Bengal in the Twenty20 tournament and has represented India in 13 One-day Internationals and nine T20Is. After the injury, Ashok Dinda was taken to the hospital for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans as a precautionary measure. Dinda was hit hard on his forehead when opening batsman Vivek Singh smashed a straight drive back at him and he tried to catch it.
Even though Dinda managed to bowl a couple of deliveries after the blow, he was sent for scans at a city hospital later.
“We did not find anything major in his scan report. He has been advised two days’ rest,” a hospital source said.
The 2011 champions Bengal open their domestic T20 campaign against Mizoram in their group D fixture at the Barabati Stadium in Cuttack on February 21.
Bengal failed to make the final at home last season after finishing third in the Super League Group B.
