Curator, Groundsman True Hero
Although Akshar Patel and Rohit Sharma were the heroes of the Indian victory, Vidarbha Cricket Association’s groundsmen worked hard to get the match started and to make it go smoothly. There has been a lot of rain in Nagpur for the past few days. So the outfield was quite wet in this ground of Vidarbha Cricket Association. There were so many patches in one part of the ground that the umpires could not start the game on time. Not only this, the umpires Nitin Menon and Anant Padmanabhan inspected the ground as many as four times. Finally at 8.45 it was announced that the match will be played at 9.30.

Appreciation from Rohit too
The VCA stadium in Jamtha, Nagpur had more than 30 thousand spectators. Many would have been disappointed if the match had not happened. But Team India captain Rohit Sharma also praised the groundsmen who have been working in the field since afternoon to make this match happen. Rohit also said that due to their efforts, this match was completed, so the credit should be given to these groundsmen. Not only this, Team India coach Rahul Dravid also met this groundsman and interacted with him.
