Desperate to save relegation, Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) selectors decided to retain Sourav Ganguly as the captain of the Bengal side for their match against Delhi from December 13-16 despite regular skipper Manoj Tiwary's availability. 

CAB Chief selector Deep Dasgupta said, "saying Tiwary was stripped off captaincy would be wrong. The situation is a little weird now. It's difficult when someone suddenly comes back to the squad," he clarified.
