Mumbai: The Mumbai Cricket Association`s polls on October 18 gathered pace today with the filing of nominations for all posts barring one by the group headed by outgoing vice president Vijay Patil here.
"Dr Vijay Patil has filed his nomination for the vice presidentship. All our panel members barring Lalchand Rajput, who is away, filed their nominations today. Rajput will be filing it electronically later today and the physical form will be submitted tomorrow to the MCA," group spokesperson Dr Unmesh Khanvilkar told PTI.
Former opener Rajput - who is coaching India A in the ongoing series against the West Indies in Karnataka - is scheduled to file his nomination for the joint secretary`s post.
Ex-India pacer Abey Kuruvilla, former Mumbai medium pacer Atul Ranade and Khanvilkar have also filed nominations for the two joint secretaries` post.
Kuruvilla, Ranade and Khanvilkar also filed their nominations for the 11-strong managing committee while Rajput is also slated to do so electronically.

Pawar is expected to file his nomination on October 11, the last date for nomination, it was learnt.
Yesterday, BJP leader and Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha, Gopinath Munde, filed his nomination to contest for the presidentship fuelling speculations that he would get involved in a straight fight with Union Agriculture Minister Pawar.
