Lalit Modi offers 5000 passes for IPL 2010 semis and finals to MCA


Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) chief Sharad Pawar said that IPL Chairman Lalit Modi has clarified the locate over the non-issue of passes for league matches to the MCA and offered 5,000 passes for semifinal and final of the IPL Twenty20 event.

"I had a talk on this issue with the BCCI President and IPL Chairman. Lalit Modi has cleared a few things," Pawar said at MCA's Annual General Meeting.

"The opening match did not belong to Navi Mumbai but to Deccan Chargers as it was originally scheduled at Hyderabad and was shifted here only due to the Telangana violence.

"Hence, the IPL could not provide passes on time as they themselves an established the passes late," he said.

"The IPL and the Board have taken this issue fatally and Modi has offered to provide our members with 5,000 passes in advance for the semifinal and the final matches," Pawar said.

On matches hosted by the Mumbai Indians, Pawar said that the IPL franchisee had straight approached the Cricket Club of India and hence MCA could not get the 20 per cent passes reserved for the host association.

"This has happened because we do not have our stadium as it is under-construction. The phase is fleeting and for this year only as once we have our stadium, nobody can deny us our share of 20 per cent seats," he added.

Meanwhile, addressing the AGM, MCA treasurer Ratnakar Shetty said that the court has refused relief to petitioners of a PIL which contended that permission for revamping of the Wankhede Stadium has been given without considering the environmental issues.

"Recently, the judges visited the site and said that MCA was not wrong in construction and refused to grant relief to the petitioners. Besides, the judges have also asked the Railways to issue an NOC. We are expecting an NOC from Railways in a week," he said.

An NOC is required from the Railways for the building of the stadium as construction is not allowed within 30 metres of the railway track, he said.


IPL Team Preview: Kolkata Knight Riders


When Shahrukh Khan - India's leading movie star - co-purchased the Kolkata Knight Riders franchise, the country couldn't help but feel an similarity with the side. And when Brendon McCullum stormed into the competition with a whirlwind 158*, it drew a group gasp of admiration from fans of the sport across the world. If Ganguly helmed the side, then there was John Buchanan who powered the think-tank. But the team could not live up to potential.

In the 2nd season, suggestions of a multiple-captain approach drew a lot of argue but as it turned out, McCullum ended up captaining the side throughout. But the side's prospects did not improve. KKR ended the event pretty close to the bottom of the table. Ricky Ponting and Morne van Wyk have been bought out ahead of Season IPL 2010, while NZ Shane Bond has been bought at USD 750,000. U-19 player Harpreet Singh has also been picked for the tournament.

IPL Team Preview: Chennai Super Kings

Chennai Super Kings, owned by India Cements, managed to get the prized services of Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the inaugural edition of IPL. Quite understandably, the Indian captain commanded the highest price at the player auctions - a whopping USD 1.5 million. Australia's batting tour de force Matthew Hayden was roped in to give the batting a destructive edge - and he played his role to perfection in two successive seasons.

Stephen Fleming, who doubled as coach in the second season; the wily Muralidaran; batsman Suresh Raina; and all-rounder Albie Morkel helped Chennai reach the final. When the second round of auctions took place, Andrew Flintoff joined as one of the highest-paid players. In 2009, Hayden scored prolifically while his team entered the semi-final, only to be pipped at the post by RCB. Fleming has now been bought out by the side and is just the coach. At the 2010 auction, the team bought South African Justin Kemp, they also brought in Sri Lankan Thisara Perera for a sum of USD 50,000.

M S Dhoni (Captain), M Muralidaran, M Vijay, Manpreet Gony, Sudeep Tyagi, Shadab Jakati, R Ashwin, K B Arun Karthik, Justin Kemp, Thisara Perera, Hemang Badani, L Balaji, S Badrinath, Suresh Raina, Matthew Hayden, Michael Hussey, Albie Morkel, Makhaya Ntini, Jacob Oram, Thilan Thushara, George Bailey, Parthiv Patel, Ganapathy Chandrasekhar
