His tips should stand me in good stead," Dasgupta told reporters on Wednesday night.Dasgupta reached the city by train late on Wednesday night from Hyderabad along with his Bengal teammates after completing their engagements in the Moin-ud-Dowla gold cup cricket tournament."It is a great opportunity for me and I am looking forward to the tour. I want to prepare myself mentally for it and talking to great keepers like Kirmani is bound to help," he said.The 24-year-old wicket-keeper said that he had intentions of speaking to city-based former wicket-keeper Saba Karim during his stay here. Dasgupta, who plays for Mohun Bagan in the local league, said that he had spoken to Indian captain Saurav Ganguly after being selected in the team and would like to have more meetings with him in the future.The youngster had planned to visit his parents in New Delhi but has changed his mind and has instead asked them to come to Kolkata. "I've asked my parents to come here so that I can save some time. I want to use all the time for practice, that's more important," he added. PTI
