CRICKET- Bengal pacer Ashok Dinda was struck on head with a ball during Bengal’s Twenty20 practice match at Eden Gardens today.

Dinda completed the over and was later taken for scans as a precautionary measure. He is now fine and has been advised rest for two days.
Bengal is all set to start its Twenty20 season against Mizoram in their group D fixture at the Barabati Stadium in Cuttack on February 21.
