The Vinoo - Pankaj partnership.. revisited

Gulu Ezekiel revisits the 50 year old record first-wicket partnership (that came real close to being broken in the recent Lahore Test).
The stand crossed 300 at lunch the next day and now Mankad had overtaken his partner. The world record of Hutton and Washbrook was passed with ease and by the time the 400-run mark had been reached Mankad had scored his double ton.

Around this time Umrigar sent a note for the batsmen to go for their shots. Thinking a declaration was imminent, Roy hit out, only to be bowled by off spinner Matt Poore for 173 with the total reading 413. But the Indians batted on, much to Roy's irritation as he felt he had been deprived of a double century.

Why do you think Umrigar sent that note? He was bored, perhaps.
