Diana Edulji, a former member of the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA), has written to the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) seeking complimentary passes for the third T20I match between India and the West Indies scheduled in Mumbai on Wednesday. The former India women cricket team captain has made the request in an email sent to MCA president Vijay Patil.
Edulji said in the past she used to get complimentary passes from the MCA for matches in Mumbai, but the same has not happened this time around.
“I, Diana Edulji, former India women’s cricket captain, used to get two complimentary president box passes since the inception right up to the last IPL. Mr (Sharad)Pawar and Mr (Ashish) Shelar used to send the passes to my residence.
“You can check the records of all previous matches where you will find my name along with Sachin (Tendulkar), (Sunil) Gavaskar, Nari Contractor, (Dilip) Vengsarkar and late shri (Ajit) Wadekar. “I am the only women’s team captain from Mumbai, thus was included. During the regime of Mr Ravi Sawant and the CoA MCA. I used to be given two passes for bilateral and IPL,” Edulji wrote in the mail.
“I request you as President of MCA, please instruct that my name is restored and I am able to get my passes. Looking forward to hearing from you positively,” she said.
