The elections to the Mumbai Cricket Association, which was scheduled to be held on November 10, has been postponed. Sources from the cricket body, on Monday, said that a decision on it will be taken after the Supreme Court gives its order on implementation of the Lodha Committee reforms. The apex court’s is expected to be announced on October 30.
The last MCA polls were held in 2015 when former Union minister and Nationalist Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar was elected as president of the association.
One of the recommendations of the Lodha panel dissuaded administrators above 70 years of age from being office-bearers of a cricket association. Earlier in the year, Pawar subsequently resigned and Mumbai’s Bharatiya Janata Party leader Ashish Shelar replaced him.
