The trial will be held at the Bengal Rowing Club, Kolkata from 28th April 2015 on wards.

The format of the trial will be determined after the number of teams is finalized. Please look for an update here.
We have to consider many factors including selecting and fixing venue, conflicts with existing events, format, anticipating court case, opinion of our lawyers, hiring person, communication etc. for deciding the trials date. Unless we know confirmed entries well in advance it will be tough to work on format and the other factors mentioned above. In addition this is a unique situation where we are forced to conduct trials again at short notice and hence we don't have a choice but to have such tight deadlines.
i for 1 feel since the winner is disqualified the runner up shd automatically get selected instead of wasting time and resources on fresh sel trials besides incidentally formidables was runner up and is definitely 1 of the if not the best team to represent the country
i know i am in minority
this is only my personal opinion
i think vikrant is rt people need more time
Kindly extend the deadline for entries by a week, so that sufficient time for team formation is available for players without a regular team. (the ones who do not have a sponsor)
