Ever since the first Test match here in 1983 till the last one, before this series, in 2012, Dhiraj Parsana was the curator who laid out the pitch for every Test match in Ahmedabad. According to the veteran curator, now retired after serving the Gujarat Cricket Association for more than three decades following a successful career as a left-arm bowler, admits that modern-day curators don’t have a choice but to cater to demands of the home team.

“Call it curator or groundsman, I feel they are never allowed to prepare pitches their way. It’s been going on for the last 10 years. When I was a curator, my sincere attempt used to be to make a pitch that would last the whole duration of the game,” Parsana, 73, told Sportstar here on Tuesday.
