Articles about Deep Dasgupta

A West Bengal-born wicketkeeper-batsman, former Indian cricketer Deep Dasgupta played most of his cricket in the early years for Delhi. Under the tutelage of Gursharan Singh, he grew as a player and even made it to the U-16 team of Delhi. However, he chose to play first-class cricket for Bengal. Dasgupta did not disappoint as he struck a century against Baroda on his Ranji Trophy debut in 1998-99. He was unable to cement his position in the Bengal team as Saba Karim was still the first-choice wicketkeeper. After Karim retired in 2000, Dasgupta became a permanent member of the team. He came under the radar of national selectors after his performances in three consecutive first-class matches in the 2000-01 season, where he had 13 dismissals and scored 198 runs. He made his international debut in an ODI in 2001 against South Africa. The same year, he made his Test debut as well. Although he was appalling in ODIs, he proved to be better in Tests. Dasgupta only played eight Tests and five ODIs. In 2006, he became the captain of the Bengal team after Sourav Ganguly stepped down, but decided to join the rebel Indian Cricket League (ICL) in 2007. As of 2021, he is a commentator.
