The Maharashtra Cricket Association or MCA has got the required permission from the BCCI to hold their annual state elections.
The elections of the MCA will happen on the 28th of September as decided by the Apex Council of the state association.
A BCCI office-bearer told an MCA official that the elections can go on without any hitch.
This move comes as a surprise for the MCA who till today were thinking about postponing the elections in today’s meeting.
But, an MCA official wanted that the meeting should go on without taking permission from the BCCI which it did today.
BCCI till recently was asking all the state associations to not rush in with their elections. But, now the reason is hard to gauge as to why BCCI gave the green signal to MCA.
One reason can be the BCCI’s own case of the removal of the cooling-off clause in their constitution. For this, they have already applied to the Supreme Court and awaiting the final judgement.
After the removal of the cooling-off clause from the BCCI’s constitution, a lot of things can change.
BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and Secretary Jay Shah will be able to continue in their positions unopposed.
Before the BCCI elections, both Ganguly and Shah will also seek re-election for their respective posts.
