MCA Apex Council member Nadim Memon wrote to Sourav Ganguly. (Source: File)Mumbai Cricket Association Apex Council member and famous curator Nadim Memon has urged the BCCI to organise the Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy right here saying the town has sufficient grounds to host the home T20 tournament.
In an e-mail to BCCI chief Sourav Ganguly, Memon mentioned, “Mumbai should be given responsibility to organise the Mushtaq Ali Tournament. We can start with BCCI Mushtaq Ali Tournament season 2020 in Mumbai.”
He reasoned that the town has six good high quality cricket stadiums with all of the services and in addition has good inns.
“Mumbai has six good high quality stadiums floor with all services and good inns.
All cricketers/officers’ security will likely be taken care, as per the BCCI pointers. Mumbai has organised in February/March 2020 All India Women’s BCCI One Day tournament efficiently in 20 days,” wrote Memon.
“We need to think positive and arrange the tournament for the bread and butter of the upcoming cricketers.”
He mentioned the BCCI ought to make sure that gamers are examined for COVID-19 on their arrival in Mumbai inns and once more three to 4 days earlier than tournament.
“Players will (should) not be allowed to go out or meet any outsiders, stay in hotel room with all facilities available. They should go to stadium in a fixed bus. Same thing will be followed with BCCI matche officials of the tournament,” he mentioned.
There remains to be no official phrase from the BCCI on home cricket in the nation.
For the report, Mumbai is among the worst COVID-19 affected cities in the nation with over one lakh circumstances. Cricket in the town has come to a grinding halt since mid March.
The MCA has three grounds — Wankhede, BKC and Sachin Tendulkar Gymkhana in Kandivili. Then, there may be DY Patil Stadium at Navi Mumbai and Dadoji Okay Stadium in neighbouring Thane. The Brabourne Stadium in South Mumbai is owned by Cricket Club of India.
