Ahead of KKR vs. SRH Eden Gardens, the curator gives a massive Statement

The Eden Gardens curator has given a massive statement just ahead of Kolkata Knight Rider’s first match in the IPL 2024. Sujan Mukherjee, the curator, has claimed that there is no chance of favoring the home team. He has claimed that nowhere in the IPL rules is it stated that pitches favor home teams.

Sujan Mukherjee said, “There is no question of favoring the home team. Nowhere in the IPL rules is it stated that pitches should favor the home team. It depends on the curator.”

Mukherjee added, “They have a spin-heavy team every year, but this time they have Mitchell Starc, who was bought for Rs 24.75 crore. So, he is a pacer. I also have not received any hints from KKR management.”

Back in 2012 and 2014, when KKR won the title, Gautam Gambhir depended heavily on his spin department. It can be expected to be the same this year too. The likes of Shakib, Sunil, Piyush, and Varun are expected to play a big role in the tournament.

While concluding his statement, Mukherjee said, “See, it is not like the Eden wicket does not spin; it does a bit. Remember the ODI World Cup match between South Africa and Australia? The wickets that I prepare will offer good bounce with little spin, and the batter will also enjoy playing here. The public will also want a pitch that offers something for everyone.”
