  • From Calcutta to Atghara
  • Japanese Terror
  • Buddhadeb Babu's Refusal
  • No, no I just cannot be the umpire.
  • Atghara's New Umpire
  • I've never seen or played cricket in my life! I know nothing.
  • NO PROBLEM. You have 4 days to learn the Wisden.
  • The most important thing is personality and you have plenty of that.
  • Many people from Calcutta had fled to different villages in Bengal in fear of the Japanese bomb. A group of people fled to a village called Atghara. The tradition of an annual cricket match between Atghara and the neighbouring village Bakdeeghi had originated then. The villages were ruled by different families which had a conflict. Though it had decreased over the years, the cricket match was still played.
  • The Match Begins...
  • According to the local rules, one umpire had to be present from each side. For the last 3 years, Atghara's umpire was high school teacher Buddhadeb Babu. This year he refused as he was accused of bribery after he upheld five of Bakdeegi's appeals, resulting in the Athgara's defeat. This ruined his reputation. He even refused when he was asked by Paramesh Sinha of the famous Sinha family.
  • And the Winner is...
  • Howzzat?!
  • OUT!! For obstructing the field
  • Before the match was to take place a Member of the Parliament Mr. Gopinath Ghosh happened to visit Atghara and Nantu Dutta, suggested that they ask him to become the umpire as he would be able to take an impartial decision. He accepted their proposal immediately, but only problem was that he knew nothing about crickets rules and regulations. He was given a Wisden to learn the rules.
  • Epilogue
  • Bakdheeghi won the toss an allowed us to bat.Gopinath Ghosh was seen walking towards the stumps exuding personality from every pore.A stunned silence prevails among the players of Bakdeeghi.The whole atmosphere was so abnormal that even the Athgara batsmen began to feel nervous.
  • Parameshda delivered a ball that was so slow that the batsman Mishirji, got quite confused and at last moment and swung the bat straight at the ball. the ball went up very high from the middle of the pitch. DR,Bhuwaneshwar Singi a fielder of Atghara hesitated for only a second and then placed himself between both of the batsmen and they all fell down just as the ball reached his outstretched hands. "OUT!" said MR.Ghosh without the slightest hesitation. Atghara had won.
  • WHY?!
  • The decision made by Gopinath Ghosh was a suspicious one but since no one knew the actual rules they did not dare to question his decision. A week after the match, Patu Mukherjee from Bakdeeghi’s team storms into Parameshda’s office. “You defeated us simply just because your umpire as an MP!” He showed Parmeshada the Wisden proving that only the striker can be declared out. He left the room saying “We shall also arrange for some umpiring!”
