Curator Prabir Mukherjee back at Eden Gardens after day-long drama

Prabir Mukherjee, who has been at the centre of controversy for apparently refusing to toe the line of India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni's demand for a rank turner, had expressed his desire to go on leave on medical grounds as he felt that the host association was not standing by him. Following his U-turn, Mukherjee was back at the Eden Gardens towards the evening and was seen enjoying good camaraderie with CAB top brass.

Kolkata: The drama surrounding the preparations of the Eden pitch for the third Test between India and England ended today after CAB President Jagmohan Dalmiya persuaded Prabir Mukherjee to return to work, hours after the peeved curator had threatened to proceed on medical leave.

Mukherjee, unhappy at being sidelined, had decided to go on a month's medical leave in the morning but was persuaded to change his mind by the evening after meetings with CAB officials.

"There is no issue at all. We have sorted out the differences. Prabir Mukherjee was the Eden Gardens curator. He will be in-charge of the Test match against England stating on December 5 and the India versus Pakistan ODI on January 3, next year," CAB chief Dalmiya said after his meeting with the veteran curator.
