22nd East Zone National Handball tournament will be held from December 21-24 as this year the tournament will be held at Gushkara in Kolkata.
Tripura will also take part in the tournament and for this 16 member Tripura squad has been announced today. Before the tournament all the 16 members will come together and take part in a special training camp which will be held from December 9-18 at BSF camp in Salbagan.
Coach cum Manager Surya Kanta Paul is not 100% happy with the team as he said that Police and TSR players did not take part in the selection camp and thus the team has been formed without more talented players but still he thinks that this team also has the capacity to do well in the tournament.
Tripura Team: Patu Roy, Tutan Das, Viky Saha, Rahul Saha, Litan Roy, Utpal Deb, Sanjay Dey, Maman Hussein, Mohammed Narsi, Dipak Alawat, Sanjay Das, IB George, Vijay Malik, Amar Nath, Rajib Paul and Timan Mia.
