Maharashtra Congress vice-president Bhushan Patil has officially thrown his hat into the ring for the position of interim president of the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA).

In a significant political move, Bhushan Patil filed his nomination for the MCA interim president position in the presence of Maharashtra Congress president Nana Patole. Patil took to social media platform X to announce his candidacy, stating, “Filed my nomination for @MumbaiCricAssoc President By-Elections today in the presence of @INCMaharashtra President Shri @NANA_PATOLE ji.” This nomination marks a crucial step in filling the leadership void left by the late Amol Kale.

The MCA has laid out a comprehensive schedule for the by-election process. Following the unfortunate passing of Amol Kale, who died in New York at the age of 47, the MCA moved swiftly to ensure a seamless transition of leadership. The association invited nominations from member clubs and former international players between June 25 and July 2. The window for filing nominations was set from July 4 to July 10 at the MCA Lounge in Wankhede Stadium, as announced by the electoral officer JS Saharia.

Upcoming Hearings and Candidate List

A hearing is scheduled for July 11, during which candidates will present their cases. This step ensures transparency and fairness in the election process. Should any nominations be withdrawn, the final list of candidates will be published on July 16. Voting will take place on July 23, coinciding with the announcement of the results.

Amol Kale, who was elected as the MCA president in 2022, made significant contributions during his tenure. One of his notable achievements was granting a 100% pay raise to senior men’s cricketers, effective from the 2024-25 season. Kale’s sudden demise has left a void in the MCA leadership, making the upcoming election a critical event for the association’s future.
