Kanga League postponed

The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) has decided to postpone the Division E to H second-round matches of the Dr H.D. Kanga Cricket League, which was scheduled to be played on Sunday, August 27. Due to the wet ground conditions on account of continuous rains during the week, the matches have been postponed, according to a release posted on the MCA website on Saturday evening.

MCA Secretary Ajinkya Naik said, “It has been raining steadily throughout the week and this has resulted in the groundsmen unable to prepare the wickets at all the cricket playing venues. That is why we have decided to postpone the matches of E to H Division to a later date. We will inform the teams about the revised date for the postponed matches”.

The matches which are postponed are likely to be played on the reserve Sunday in October. All the participating clubs and players are requested to note the same.
