Eden Gardens curator Prabir Mukherjee has been sidelined after refusing to prepare a turning track for the third Test between India and England. The BCCI has asked Ashish Bhowmick of the Tripura Cricket Association to prepare the track at the venue.
According to a NDTV report, Mukherjee had made it clear that he couldn’t change the track overnight. he had also called Indian skipper MS Dhoni's demand for a turning pitch unethical.
The BCCI responded by asking Ashish Bhowmick- a member of the BCCI's Pitches Committee, to work with Mukherjee for the third test, that begins on December 5th.
After the 10-wicket loss to England in Mumbai, Dhoni had expressed his wish for another rank turner, saying, “Of course, we want a similar track (to that of Wankhede) as that’s where our speciality is… What’s the point in playing on flat tracks, trying to win the toss and just bat for three or four days!”
