The Managing Committee of the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) on Tuesday approved the new draft constitution which incorporates some of the reforms suggested by the Justice Lodha committee.

The committee met here this evening.

The draft constitution will now be circulated among the members for suggestions and objections, a senior MCA official said.

The city cricket body has no objections to the clauses like age-cap of 70 years, but it has some reservations about the one-state-one-vote clause to which even the BCCI has objected, he said. “After obtaining suggestions from members, a special general body meeting will be called,” he said.

The official, however, did not reveal if the clause pertaining to cooling-off period was part of the draft constitution.

The need to amend or modify the MCA constitution rose after the Supreme Court-appointed Lodha panel asked state associations to implement its recommendations.
