MCA to write another letter to CCI on seeking NOC

Mumbai: Not satisfied with the reply provided by the Cricket Club of India to their show cause notice issued a month ago as to why their license to play in local tournaments should not be revoked, Mumbai Cricket Association on Saturday decided to write a second letter to the club.

"We got a reply from CCI, but there was no mention of seeking our NOC before hosting BCCI-allotted matches in future. The reply only detailed how CCI has always supported MCA in the past," said Nitin Dalal after MCA`s managing committee met today under the chairmanship of president Sharad Pawar.

"We will await the reply to our second letter which would be sent out on Monday before deciding our future course of action," Dalal told PTI.

MCA officials were miffed after CCI was allotted one of the IPL games originally given to them in May by BCCI, contending that all Cricket Board-organised matches in Mumbai should be routed through MCA.

BCCI decided to shift the May 28 IPL Eliminator between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians from MCA`s Wankhede Stadium to CCI`s Brabourne saying it wants to spread the tournament games to more venues in the country.

MCA officials were not amused at the shift of this game as well as the June 1 final to Bangalore though Wankhede hosted two play offs as was originally planned by BCCI.

MCA, at its managing committee meeting on June 6, then decided to issue the show cause notice to CCI, also an affiliated unit of BCCI.
