Veteran Eden Gardens curator Prabir Mukherjee is in trouble with the BCCI over his outburst in the media prior to the commencement of the ongoing third Test between India and England in Kolkata on December 5.
BCCI vice-president Niranjan Shah on Friday hit out at Mukherjee for what he called a breach of the Board’s “code of conduct” and said the curator cannot escape punishment now.
“Tell me, which other curator in the past has gone and talked to the media like he has done. There is a code of conduct that the board has established and he should have adhered to it instead of airing his views in the media. He cannot go scot-free,” Shah told PTI.
Mukherjee was in the centre of a huge controversy prior to the beginning of the third Test when he termed the demand of India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni for a turning track at the Eden as “unethical”.
