Deep Dasgupta was a wicketkeeper-batter who played for Bengal in domestic cricket in India. Interestingly, this boy from Kolkata spent his childhood in Delhi, took cricketing lessons in Delhi and went on to play for Bengal in the Ranji cricket. Deep scored a debut century in the Ranji game against Baroda in 1998-99. His Bengal career has always been shadowed by Saba Karim, who was a fantastic wicketkeeper-batter.
During the 2000-01 season, Deep bagged 13 scalps in a single First-Class game. This brilliant performance with gloves in hand was accompanied by a batting average of 38. Sameer Dighe had a difficult time behind the wickets donning the Indian colors. Thus, with some luck, a tremendous amount of hard work and good numbers Deep got a call from the Senior National Team.
Sadly, Deep couldn’t muster good numbers in ODIs, though he had a few impressive and gritty innings in Tests. One such tenacious knock helped India to draw the match against South Africa at Port Elizabeth. Thanks to his maiden ton in the next Test, India defeated England by 10 wickets. But again, frustratingly, he could play only 8 Test matches in his entire career.
