Bhowmick also tried to deny reports that he had replaced Mukherjee as the curator for the third Test against England.

Bhowmick said, “It’s all media-concocted stories. I know him (Prabir Mukherjee) for many years and have learnt a lot from him. He is my guru.

He is a living legend. I’ll work with him and hope to get some more knowledge from him. It’s just a routine affair. There’s absolutely no problem between us, nor there has been any instruction from the Board,” Bhowmick said.
