Manju injured, out of Fed Cup!

In the Bagan practice today Manju was injured thought not critically near his right groin and will be out of Bagan's Fed Cup campaign. Hewas escorted to Dr. Pathak after the practice and was adiviced complete rest for the next two weeks. As a result it is clear that he will not be able to participate in the Fed Cup and Bagan will certainly miss the services of an India playing defender in the absence of Dipak Mondal(another India playing defender) and also at a time when Sanjeev Maria is not fully fit. The three India playing defenders were supposed to be the three pillars in the Bagan defence but the unavailibity of Dipak and Manju will be a huge upset. Manju who will miss the Fed Cup said , "It obviously feels bad...I wish Bagan will perform well..." However Manju wil be replaced by Chinmoy Sarkar in the Squad and Peter Siddique moves into the staring eleven. Today was Jose Ramirez Barreto's 31st Barreto and the Green and Maroon group did what it could, to make Barreto's day special day. Cake was cut and Baerreto celebrated his Birthday with the club fans. Yesterday was Sanjeev Maria's birthday, so even his birthday was celebrated in style in the club premises along with Barreto.
