Former Eden Gardens curator Prabir Mukherjee passes away

Former Eden Gardens curator Prabir Mukherjee passes away
02 June 2016 Current Affairs: Former Cricket Association of Bengal pitch curator Prabir Mukherjee has passed away aged 86 on  31 May 2016.

Mukherjee was in charge for nearly 25 years and had also served as the manager of the Bengal and East Zone teams. His association with CAB began in 1979. Mukherjee was suffering from liver problems for the last few years.

He retired from his long-held post amidst acrimony and on a bitter note after a T20 international match washout against South Africa last October. Eden's old and crumbling drainage system, coupled with the groundsmen's failure to prepare the ground at a short notice when the rain stopped, were blamed for the no-show.

Mukherjee was, in principal, held responsible for the fiasco, which the octogenarian, famous for his uprightness and scatter-gun mouth, took offense insisting the ground was playable and it was the umpires who played truant by abandoning the match.

The drama escalated when Indian captain MS Dhoni and team director Ravi Shastri said it was sad the famously passionate fans were robbed of action and refused to call the no-show a "collective failure".

Former India skipper Sourav Ganguly butted into the controversy, saying the failure was a team effort and not squarely depended on the groundsmen. Mukherjee was in the midst of numerous controversies during his long tenure and ended his innings on an indistinct note after the rain abandoned match.

Curator Sujan Mukherjee took over the reins after his withdrawal.

Known for his fluctuating temper, he has famously stopped cricketers, from inspecting the pitch or entering onto the wicket.
