The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) is upset after the fourth ODI of the five-match ODI series between India and Windies has been shifted from Wankhede Stadium (Mumbai) to Brabourne Stadium (Mumbai). Now, they have said that the Wankhede Stadium can’t host Indian women’s cricket team’s preparatory camp for the upcoming ICC Women’s World T20.

The MCA officials are upset on the fourth ODI shift as they have claimed that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) hasn’t officially responded to them yet regarding that ODI. However, BCCI has already shifted the fourth ODI from Wankhede Stadium to Brabourne Stadium on last Friday (October 12), which is scheduled to be played on October 29.

On Sunday, the MCA CEO CS Naik sent an email to the Supreme Court appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) regarding this ODI shifting issue.

Naik wrote, “This is with reference to our trailing email regarding hosting of the 4th One-Day International match between India and West Indies on 29th October, 2018 at Wankhede Stadium. We have not received any communication from your end in this regard. We are surprised to learn from media reports that the said match has been shifted to Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai. We would request you to kindly let us know the reasons for shifting of the said match.”

Even, few MCA members have decided to approach the Bombay High Court on Tuesday on the decision of ODI shifting.

Now the matter has been raised more as MCA has claimed that the Wankhede Stadium can’t host the Indian women’s cricket team’s preparatory camp for the upcoming ICC World T20 after they haven’t got any reply. According to the schedule, the women’s cricket team will undergo the yo-yo test on Tuesday and after then there will be a week-long preparation camp before leaving for Windies to play the ICC Women’s World T20.
