Kolkata, Dec 5: The cold war between the Eden curator Prabir Mukherjee and Team India skipper MS Dhoni has come to an end, as Dhoni acknowledged the veteran curator and termed him the 'Boss of Eden' before the start of the third Test match at Kolkata on Wednesday.
Too many things have happened in the last few days, as Dhoni asked for a turner at Eden, while the veteran curator was sidelined and East Zone curator Ashish Bhowmick was instructed to take charge of Eden ahead of the third Test.
Meanwhile, the 83-year-old Prabir Mukherjee, who felt insulted having asked for a written document from the BCCI in order to prepare a turner, was not available at the ground, as sources revealed that the curator was on sick leave and reports suggested that he would not put his papers soon, and would not rejoin CAB.
After being sidelined, the curator had criticised Dhoni, which meant the cold war existed between the two and the BCCI. But teh 83-year-old veteran curator ensured that he returned to work a couple of days ahead of the Eden Test to put an end to rumours.
It is also learnt that Dhoni ignored the curator on Tuesday during the net session and inspected the pitch, ahead of the third Test on Wednesday.
While it looked like the cold war would continue, Team India skipper decided to halt the issue as he had a brief discussion with the veteran curator ahead of third Test match on Wednesday and said that the curator was the boss at Eden, as curator Prabir Mukherjee told PTI on Wednesday.
"Dhoni told me, 'Aapko kabhi maine bura bola hain dada (Have I ever disrespected you?). You are the boss here," the veteran curator told PTI about his brief interaction with the India captain.
