Mumbai: Apr 10, 2013

Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) is again in the news for wrong reasons. This time Dilip Vengsarkar suffered because of poor officialdom of the Association.

Former India and Mumbai skipper Vengsarkar’s car was not allowed entry into the Wankhede stadium as it was not registered with the police officials.

The former Vice-President of Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) had a match pass and his car had a security sticker which is ideally sufficient to get an entry in the stadium.

“Vengsarkar didn’t like the way he was treated, so he went back,” a source told MiD-DAY. MCA joint-secretary Nitin Dalal regretted this incident.

“Whatever has happened is sad. This shouldn’t have happened. Mr Vengsarkar, who was there for around 10 minutes, tried to explain to the cops that he is an India cricketer and (former) vice-president of the MCA. Our (MCA) officials reached the spot as soon as they came to know about it, but by then Vengsarkar had left,” said Dalal.

Dalal informed that the police officials too regret their mistake. “In fact, the Additional Commissioner of Police (south region), Mr Krishna Prakash apologised to Vengsarkar and requested him to come to the ground. He also said that he can personally come to pick him up,” told Dalal.
