It's a matter of pride for the orange city that Nagpur-born businessman Amol Kale has been elected unopposed as the Vice President of Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA). Kale, who hails from Nagpur, got shifted to Mumbai around eight years back. Along with Kale, Vijay Patil and Sanjay Naik were also elected unopposed as the President and Secretary, respectively, of the MCA. Later, Naik was chosen as MCA's representative in BCCI election and AGM, which will be held on October 23.
While Shahalam Shaikh was appointed as the Joint Secretary of the MCA (as he defeated Sangram Lad), Jagdish Achrekar became the treasurer after he beat Mayank Khandwala.
Nine members of the newly-elected MCA's apex council are: Unmesh Khanvilkar, Ajinkya Naik, Gaurav Payyade, Vihang Sarnaik, Abhay Hadap, Kaushik Godbole, Amit Dani, Nadim Memom and Khodadad Yazdegardi.
