Decision on MCA protest today

The IPL Governing Council will take a final call on Tuesday with regards to the protest letter it has received from the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) against the shifting of the T20 tournament’s final from Wankhede Stadium to M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore.

“We had a managing committee meeting today and the members were apprised of the media release put out by the BCCI about the shifting of the final to Bangalore. Meanwhile we are also in communication with BCCI and the Governing Council of IPL on the issue,” said Ravi Savant, vice-president of MCA who chaired Monday’s managing committee meeting.

“Mr Sunil Gavaskar (interim president of BCCI on IPL matters) has told us that they will discuss the letter and come back to us with their ruling tomorrow. We are hopeful it will be in favour of MCA,” he added.

MCA got a jolt last Saturday when the IPL Governing Council decided to shift the final of the high-profile event on June 1 from here to Bangalore without assigning any specific reason for making the drastic change.
