The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) has written a letter to the Cricket Club of India (CCI) seeking an explanation on how they agreed to host an IPL Eliminator before taking its permission.
The IPL Governing Council allotted the Eliminator, to be played on May 28, to the CCI’s Brabourne Stadium. However, the decision hasn’t gone down well with the MCA, especially after the final was moved from the Wankhede to the Chinnaswamy Stadium.
CCI president Sevanti Parekh confirmed to The Indian Express that they had received a letter from the MCA. “The MCA and us have been great friends for long. We received letter from the MCA asking us to explain how we can host an IPL match without taking their permission. But how we can take permission when the BCCI has allotted the game to us? We are the founding members of BCCI and also have voting rights in the BCCI. We are happy to see cricket back in this historic ground and Brabourne Stadium has always welcomed any type of cricketing activity,” Parekh said.
The letter has been sent by MCA vice-president Ravi Savant, who also happens to be BCCI vice-president from West Zone. It has been learnt soon after receiving the letter, CCI vice-president Kapil Malhotra spoke to BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel, who assured him that there was no need to reply to the letter.
