"I got an SOS that asked me to join the Indian team in Ahmedabad. I shall be with the team Wednesday morning," Dinda said.

The call came to the Bengal cricketer when he had just boarded a flight to Kolkata from Chandigarh after Bengal`s disastrous Ranji match against Punjab. Bengal went down by a humiliating innings and 27 runs.

There was, however, no official confirmation from the Board of Control for Cricket in India about Sharma`s availability. It was also hazy as to whether Dinda has been called in as Sharma`s replacement or cover.


Dinda`s coach Ataldeb Burman called it his best Diwali gift. "He called me up to give the good news. I am very happy."

"When he was repeatedly ignored I used to tell him not to lose heart. Given a chance, he will do well. I am confident. His line and length has vastly improved now. He has reaped rich dividends for his dedication," Burman said.
