Shahbaz Ahmed, who made it to the Indian squad for the South Africa T20Is, has also made the cut with Mukesh Kumar, Ishan Porel and Akash Deep.

The T20 tournament begins on October 11, and Bengal, placed in Elite Group E, will open its campaign against Jharkhand. Ahead of the season, three Bengal cricketers - Wriddhiman Saha, Sudip Chatterjee and Shreevats Goswami - obtained a No Objection Certificate from the Cricket Association of Bengal and moved on to other teams. 

Easwaran, currently playing in the Irani Cup for Rest of India, was recently part of the First-Class fixtures against New Zealand A and scored 132 in the first game. The century was followed by scores of 22, 38 and 4. Shahbaz and Mukesh, too, have made their presence felt, and under new coach Laxmi Ratan Shukla, the team hopes to live up to expectations in the shortest format.
