The cricketers around the world would anxiously wait for his signals but ICC umpire Anil Chaudhary had little inkling that a certain lack of "signal" would affect his work and daily routine. <p></p> <p></p>Once the South Africa ODI series was postponed due to coronavirus pandemic, Chaudhary - one of ICC's international panel umpires - left for his native village Dangrol in Uttar Pradesh, around 80 km from the national capital. <p></p> <p></p>Much to his amazement, he found villagers climbing up trees to receive mobile phone network. The lack of connectivity affected some of Chaudhary's ICC workshops too. <p></p> <p></p>But not any more. <p></p> <p></p>After PTI Bhasha reported Chaudhary's plight, one telecom company contacted him and installed a mobile tower at his village, solving the connectivity problems of thousands of villagers, who are now showering blessings on the 'son of soil'. <p></p> <p></p>"Unlike earlier times, I don't have to shuttle between Delhi and Dangrol when I would have my video conferences. I am now able to attend workshops from my village home," a proud Chaudhary told PTI Bhasha. <p></p> <p></p>"I am happy that villagers can now speak uninterrupted and children who need mobile phone access for academic work will get the benefit. When villagers came to show their gratitude, I could understand how big a thing this (having a mobile tower) is for them," said Chaudhary.
