Kolkata: Bengal named an unchanged squad for their Ranji Trophy semi-final against Karnataka at Eden Gardens from Saturday.

Pacer Akash Deep, who had to sit out against Odisha in the quarterfinal because of a niggle, is back in the squad as he is likely to make a comeback.

Bengal stormed into the Ranji Trophy semi-final by virtue of their first innings lead over Odisha in Cuttack.

The two-time former champions Bengal last made the Ranji semi-finals in 2017-18 only to go down to Delhi.

Karnataka, who thrashed Jammu and Kashmir in their quarter-final, will be bolstered by the return of India opener KL Rahul.

Meanwhile, the Cricket Association of Bengal president Avishek Dalmiya on Tuesday urged first and second division clubs, district teams and school level cricketers to send their players to come and support Bengal during their Ranji Trophy semi-final.

"We have urged the first and second division clubs to send their players to watch the match. We have also asked the district teams to send the players as also school level cricketers and coaching centres affiliated with us. We want everyone to come and support our team," Avishek said.

Bengal Squad: Abhimanyu Easwaran (captain), Manoj Tiwary, Anustup Majumder, Shreevats Goswami (wk), Sudip Chatterjee, Abishek Raman, Koushik Ghosh, Arnab Nandi, Shahbaz Ahmed, Agniv Pan, Ishan Porel, Shreyan Chakraborty, Nilkantha Das, Mukesh Kumar, Akash Deep and Golam Mustafa.
