Jamshedpur:Jharkhand Bangla Bhasa Morcha (JBBM) today decided to boycott the India-England ODI to be played at Keenan stadium here on April 12 to protest the exclusion of Sourav Ganguly from the Indian squad.

The JBBM has also decided to show black flags to Team India coach Greg Chappell and chairman of the selection committee Kiran More.

Morcha state general secretary Jayanta Dey said the organisation would launch a drive to make the local Bengalis boycott the match.

He said the JBBM would also submit a memorandum to BCCI president Sharad Pawar demanding immediate removal of Chappell and More.

The outfit members also decided not to watch any match of the forthcoming Test series with England over the non-inclusion of 'Prince of Kolkata' in the squad.
