Opening Doorz is in possession of a letter written by the MCA signed by C S Naik (CEO) and Dr. Unmesh Khanvilkar granting permission to a private body, IMG Reliance, to conduct Mumbai Inter-schools Cricket League 2018-19.
What was the role of the selectors from the beginning? The senior selectors did not watch a single match. Moreover, they ignored the top performers from the MCA Tournaments: on what basis?
Nowadays, officials appoint themselves, their children and family members as managers and get good money as allowances. Those who support the group they come from are rewarded with plum positions and areas where they can make money and keep their mouth shut!
Sir Ramakant Achrekar was driven by this passion for the game and he ensured that his wards got enough and more match practice running around from one maidan to another.
“Everybody is scared because of their deals. I want to contest the elections and be a part of the MCA but there are no elections. Many MCA members are happy that I have taken up this cause and they are with me, supporting me morally.”
One of the current MCA members whose term has long expired and who is 70-plus, still continues to hold office, while another is a government servant: both are sticking to their seats. Shrikant Tigdi was born in 1946, while Deepak Patil, is a government servant.
The question for India, however, remains: Will Ngidi make the Indians do the Lungi dance? Only Kohli can answer that question: he has a weird team selection process, you see!
