Dhoni’s demand immoral says Eden Gardens’ curator

Dhoni's demand immoral says Eden Gardens' curator

Kolkata: touching out at MS Dhoni for stern a ”square turner from day one”, veteran Eden Gardens’ steward Prabir Mukherjee on Sat termed the demand of Indian cricket captain as ”immoral.”

Mukhejee, UN agency has been getting ready the pitch of the construction since 1985, shot a letter to Cricket Association of geographic area (CAB) this morning and sought-after a “medical leave”. He conjointly hinted that he might not re-join in any respect.

The development came but forty eight hours once the BCCI sidelined the 83-year-old and sent East Zone ground and pitch committee representative Ashish Bhowmick to arrange a customized wicket at the Eden.

“It was Associate in Nursing insult on behalf of me,” Mukherjee told PTI touching on the appointment of Bhowmick.

Mukherjee is riled at CAB’s angle and aforementioned President Jagmohan Dalmiya had even vulnerable to suspend him if he spoke concerning the pitch.

“Nowhere the president has the correct to speak concerning pitches. however here they’re threatening to suspend American state if I quote pitches. this can be the treatment i buy once over twenty years of my service at CAB,” aforementioned Mukherjee, UN agency is claimed to own variations with Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Dhoni had demanded a rank turner for the urban center take a look at and Mukhejree had aforementioned that such a requirement wasn’t logical as 2 pitches can’t be identical. That had apparently prompted BCCI to send Bhowmik to administrate the preparations.

“I expected some style of protection from CAB thought that they’d stand by American state. Instead they’re once American state. My BP shot up 170/100 last night. once the check-up, the doctors have suggested American state a whole rest for a month. I’ve sent the written report and request for a medical leave for a month to the CAB this morning,” he aforementioned once causation his application to CAB.

“I do not build pitches to earn cash. I had ready pitches in East Pakistan for the U-19 tourney (in 2004) and also the Interstate Commerce Commission Cup while not obtaining one penny. Cricket is my passion that is why i am related to Eden for therefore long.”

Mukherjee is managing a mental trauma once loss of his 31-year-old female offspring and 73-year-old partner in six days.

“My female offspring died on could twenty five and partner on could thirty one. Despite managing terrible personal crisis, I failed to take one day’s leave. The day once my wife’s death, i used to be at the Eden Gardens. no one will question my commitment. however i’m obtaining such a deal from the CAB,” he said.

Asked whether or not he would really like to return back to Eden once one month, Mukherjee was non-committal.

“I can see then. You see, i am the right age and also the loss of my partner and female offspring has created American state very weak.”

During England’s last look here for Associate in Nursing ODI in 2011, Dhoni had termed the Eden wicket as “ugly”. but India had won that match for a 5-0 whitewash within the series.

Even once being thrashed by ten wickets on a customized Wankhede track within the second take a look at, Dhoni had insisted for the same rank turner for the Eden take a look at starting Gregorian calendar month five.

But Mukherjee had brazenly criticised Dhoni and aforementioned, “Two pitches will ne’er be identical, logically. It’s most unethical if the India captain makes such statements publicly. he is passing such comments each currently and so, that is basically unfortunate.”
