New Delhi, Feb 28:
Veteran pitch curator Daljit Singh’s job as chief curator of the BCCI is in line after the scathing report by the ICC which rated the Pune pitch, prepared under his guidance, as “poor”.
In fact Daljit was in charge when the Nagpur pitch was also rated ‘poor’ by ICC match referee Jeff Crowe during the India versus South Africa Test match in November 2015 that ended inside three days with an emphatic victory for hosts.
Another showcause by the ICC certainly has not gone unnoticed by the Committee of Administrators and BCCI CEO Rahul Johri will have to frame a reply within 14 days as per global body’s norm.
“Even if there was instructions from team management, Daljit could have just ignored them. No one can pressurise the curator if he doesn’t want to buckle down. (PTI)
