The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) has decided to call for an urgent managing committee meeting today to clarify objections regarding the Mumbai T20 league. Former MCA president Ravi Savant shot a letter to the MCA president Ashish Shelar to call off the T20 league since the present committee is not authorised to take such decisions because their term expired in April this year. The organisers of the league Probability Sports want clarity on the legal part from the MCA.
