Mumbai: The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA), on Friday, scrapped a probe committee’s report on unsold tickets of the 2011 World Cup final held, here, after its newly elected president Sharad Pawar slammed it as “unfair.”
Pawar, who was elected unopposed at MCA’s biennial polls, criticised the formation of the panel. He questioned how Ravi Mandrekar, who had complained about the matter, could be a member of the panel inquiring into the issue of over 400 unsold tickets for the April 2, 2011 final between India and Sri Lanka.
“If you have to inquire into a particular complaint, the complainant himself should not be a member of the inquiry committee. It is totally unfair,” said Pawar, at the Annual General Meeting (AGM).
Meanwhile, Ravi Savant and Vijay Patil, who led two rival groups, were elected as vice-presidents of the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) that will be headed by Sharad Pawar.
Three other members of Savant’s panel, namely Vinod Deshpande (treasurer), Nitin Dalal (joint secretary) and P.V. Shetty (joint secretary), were also elected.
