MCA set to fight it out with Ratnakar Shetty, Mayank Parekh in court
Despite reservations from a few members, the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) yesterday decided to go ahead with their legal battles with seasoned administrator Prof Ratnakar Shetty and Mayank Parekh, who have challenged the Association's decision to amend the election bylaw.
Shetty is a representative of the Parekh’s Bombay Union Sports Club. MCA’s managing committee made an amendment barring any permanent employee of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Garware Club House and IPL from contesting MCA polls.
The amendment was viewed as another attempt to stop Shetty, who is BCCI’s General Manager Game Development, from contesting the Oct 18 polls.
Shetty successfully managed to get a stay order on MCA’s five-year ban for his alleged black marketing remarks. Shetty’s hearing will come up in the Bombay High Court on Oct 3 while Parekh’s hearing takes place today in City Civil court.
