MCA managing committee meeting to decide on Ankeet letter

Mumbai July 29: MCA has received a formal request from banned cricketer Ankeet Chavan to be allowed to resume his cricket career and the state association will decide on the matter at its managing committee meeting on August 2.

"We have received a formal request from Chavan that he be allowed to play again. We will put it before our President Shri Sharad Pawar and other managing committee members at our meeting on Sunday," said Mumbai Cricket Association's joint secretary Dr P V Shetty today.

Shetty said whatever be the decision of the managing committee on the issue, the final authority is the Cricket Board.

"We may decide to forward his letter along with our own decision to the BCCI. But we will abide by whatever the BCCI says, " he added.

Chavan has been cleared of spot fixing charges levied by the Delhi police by a trial court.

However the BCCI which had conducted it's own enquiry on the charges relating to the 2013 edition of IPL has said that the ban would not be lifted.
