Mumbai: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is confident that the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) will host India’s fourth ODI against the West Indies on October 29 despite the roadblocks cited by the state body’s officials. The MCA officials Tuesday met a senior BCCI official to apprise him of the prevailing difficulties, including their inability to operate the MCA bank account and non-issuance of a tender notice for in-stadia advertising rights. “On the request of a top BCCI official, senior MCA officials and a few Managing Committee members met and appraised him about the situation that presently there is nobody to operate the bank account and to invite tenders for the game,” a top MCA official said. However, COA chief Vinod Rai said a feasible solution would soon be worked out. “I am not at all saying that Mumbai ODI will be shifted. Yes, they have raised some issues and I am confident that we will have a feasible solution,” Rai said.
