Former test match batsmen Sudhir Naik has quit as consultant curator of the wankhede stadium. The curator had informed the MCA that he would not be available from June 1st.
Naik said that the former curator Nadim always used to find fault with him and that he has had enough of it. He explained that, Mumbai association has been getting many awards since three years only because of good work being done.
Naik said ” If some one in the panel, keeps on saying that am not performing good it is time to quit. My job is not to sit the whole day at the ground and inspect things. Am entitled to check the performances of the staff and help them to develop a good ground”.
Nadim said that he Naik’s complaints are just because he did not receive a major share of the Prizes awarded by the BCCI to the groundsmen. He added that this time he was against him, because he felt that the groundsmen should be awarded more since they are the real hard workers.
Nadim countered that, Naik may have resigned because he has got only a two month extension and not a two year extension like the other ground staff, the NDTV reports.
Naik has been credited for preparing three pitches during the ICC World cup, 2011 when the Board was in a critical situation. Naik, served as assistant Curator for about 15 years since 2005, when ICC took seriously the India vs Australia out come, which ended in 3 days.
