    Srinivasan criticises, Mukherjee unfazed

    \"Let Srinivasan say whatever he wants to. I don\'t listen to him,\" said the Eden Gardens curator.

    Kolkata: Under-fire curator of the Eden Gardens, Prabir Mukherjee, on Saturday said he is not bothered about BCCI President N Srinivasan's reported unhappiness with the stadium's pitch for the ongoing third Test in which England are in command against India.

    There's speculation that Mukherjee's days as Eden's curator would be over after India-Pakistan one-dayer on January 3 as CAB might go for another local man.

    Unhappy with the functioning of the outspoken Mukherjee, the board supremo, in a brainstorming meeting on Friday, had reportedly asked CAB chief Jagmohan Dalmiya to make the 83-year-old fall in line or else get ready for a harsh step.

    Mukherjee, however, remained unperturbed. "Let Srinivasan say whatever he wants to. I don't listen to him. I don't even speak to the [CAB] president before preparing a wicket. I act as per my knowledge of the wicket. I also don't read the newspaper reports. Let them write what they want," Mukherjee told PTI this morning.

    Asked whether his days were numbered, Mukherjee said, "It's a million dollar question."
