Kohli, Shastri felicitate curator Daljit Singh
Mohali, September 18 Captain Virat Kohli and head coach Ravi Shastri felicitated recently-retired curator Daljit Singh ahead of the second T20 International between India and South Africa here today. The 77-year-old retired as the BCCI's chief curator earlier this month after 22 years of service to Indian cricket. He, however, continues to head the Punjab Cricket Association pitch committee and oversaw the pitch preparations for the second T20 International between India and South Africa here on Wednesday. Kohli and Shastri presented a memento to Daljit for his long service to Indian cricket. A former First-Class cricketer, Daljit was handpicked by former PCA and BCCI president IS Bindra to produce the fastest pitch in India at Mohali back in 1993 and in another four years, Daljit became part of the BCCI's first pitch committee in 1997. Needless to say Indian cricket has come a long way, including the job of a curator. Back in those days groundsmen were merely seen as maalis who didn't even get paid but now we have a system in place which produces certified curators (since 2012), said Daljit Singh , As Reported By Tribune.
