Vengsarkar to contest MCA Polls Again

Mumbai, April 21: Former Indian captain and chief selector Dilip Vengsarkar is all set to contest for the MCA chief once again.

Having narrowly lost the Mumbai Cricket Association MCA elections four years back to former Maharashtra chief minister Vilasrao Deshmukh, Dilip Vengsarkar is all set to try his luck for the post of president of the cricket body, which will hold its biannual polls on June 19.

The former India batsman was the MCA vice-president from 2001-2011. After suffering a defeat in 2011, he chose not to contest in 2013, before jumping in the fray again this time. The MCA is presently headed by NCP supremo and former ICC and BCCI chief Sharad Pawar and looking to that Vengsarkar will have a tough task on hand as he takes on the might of Pawar in the elections.
