Kolkata: Bengal pacer Ashok Dinda was once again kept out of the squad for their upcoming Ranji Trophy Elite Group A fixture against Gujarat from 3 January as the selectors named a 16-member squad on Monday.

The Bengal pace spearhead Dinda, who has represented India in 13 ODIs and 9 T20 Internationals, was dropped from the Bengal Ranji Trophy squad on the eve of their match against Andhra after he "abused" bowling coach Ranadeb Bose after a pre-match practice session and refused to apologise.

"Based on team management's views, the selectors did not consider Dinda for inclusion in the team at this stage," CAB joint secretary Avishek Dalmiya said.

Bengal bowling attack missed Dinda as they had to settle for three points on basis of their first innings lead.
