A dream come true moment at Eden Gardens – Kolkata :
The Eden Gardens is a biggest cricket stadium in India and the capacity of crowd that it can hold is above 90,000. The renovations took some more space and today the figure of audience that can watch the game at a time is limited to 90,000. Prior to renovations, there were about 1,20,000 spectators allowed to enter in to the cricket stadium. To play in front of jam packed Eden Gardens is a dream of every cricketer and it is a special moment for every individual entering during the match between various cricket Teams.
Now our umpire, Mr. Vineet Kulkarni, says that it was a dream come true moment for him to be on the field where near about 1,00,000 of spectators were supporting the game of cricket. On the very next, Vineet says that the match between India and Pakistan is always a crucial game and every moment during the match is very tough for each and every player representing their country. It was a proud moment for Vineet because he was the umpire for the match and he says that it was a tough situation but he managed to think that on this field only two teams are playing the game and he just needs to focus on his role and nothing else. This made his job of umpiring a little bit easier and he could concentrate more on the game of cricket rather than the clash of India and Pakistan Cricket Teams.
At last Vineet Said that the role of umpire is never to display that he knows much of the game of cricket. The job of umpire is just to give perfect decisions and Vineet said that he was successful at such a crucial and high pressure match between India and Pakistan cricket teams.
