Turmoil in selection of U16 team for TCA

Emerging cricketer Subhrapratim Bhattacharjee left out of Tripura U 16 team for Vijay merchant trophy.

TCA show cause of not passing fitness test, but Subhrapratim and his family accuses that no fitness test had been conducted.

He has been left out due to some internal fallacy

This incident has left cricket lovers stunned

Subhrapratim Bhattacharjee said “I got selection in 49 players list of U 16 Vjay Merchant trial camp. Then I got selected in 31 players list. Practice match was conducted between two teams made from these 31 selected players. On the basis of this match performance, TCA announced the team of 17 players for Jharkhand and Bihar where I was in the standby with other 10 member. After returning from Bihar, TCA announced the team against Bengal where I was selected in best 17, but I didn’t get an opportunity to play. Tripura lost the match due to bad performance. On that day, coach Rasu deb Dutta declared 7 players for fitness test on 4 Nov 2018 where my name was not there in the 7 players list. And suddenly on 5 Nov 2018, He added my name suddenly and declared 8 players for fitness test. But the test didn’t happen because post lunch any fitness test can’t take place. And in the night suddenly the coach texted on the WhatsApp group about 3 names Ananda bhowmik, Subhradeep bhattacharjee and myself subhrapratim bhattacharjee and asked to report next morning for fitness test at 7.30 am in mmb stadium.

From 25.08.18 till 8.11.18 time to time as their instructions I did practiced But from 31st October 2018 my 4th monthly exam was started . For this reason I couldn’t attend my exam. And also unable to attend the school and my private tutor also,
Rest 14 players were called at 9 am at mmb stadium.

8.11 2018 at 7 pm coach share the List of 15 players for assam matches where my name was not there.

My father enquired about the reason of my sudden removal in the team. He called Chairman Junior selector team Mr. Shubhashis Bhardhan. He replied that as or physio report he is physically unfit. Also father went to coach residence to meet him. But he was not at home.

I asked my coach in the group and also in personal chat whether I should carry my gears. He didnot replied. Next morning at 6.26 am In the group , Team manager replied “14 member will come with their ornaments except other 3 players ” . Accordingly I didn’t carry any kits. I asked my coach in the ground, sir, Team manager informed me not to bring kits. But he replied that no, I said to bring kits. Then I informed my father. He brought my kit from home. And due to bad weather fitness test got cancelled. After sometime we started practicing from 1 pm to 4pm. Next day 7.11.2018 reporting time was 8 am. I went and attend indoor net session. I practiced till 3 pm. And On 8.11.2018 , I practiced from 9 am to 2.30pm. Trainer Uttam Dey collected the squad brief from me”.

He also added “Without any medical test of any the players how they made the final wise selection of the team.

If subhrapratim was physically unfit why and on what grounds physio or fitness trainer or coach allows him to the practice session.

If there was any such issue regarding fitness, why the manager did no inform the player parent.
