The Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (MPCA) are not at all happy with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). The reason of their unhappiness is that they are having a feeling that their state is not able to host any international cricket in recent times. Despite the fact that the two stadiums present in the state have seen Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar scoring One-Day International (ODI) double centuries. This means the pitches are relay good to bat on so BCCI should fix more matches in their state. BCCI did not hand over any matches for the upcoming India-West Indies series and this has made the Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (MPCA) very much unhappy.

Kolkata, Visakhapatnam, Cuttack, Dharamsala and Kochi are the five places honoured with the right to host the five ODIs. Last year, Kolkata hosted the first Test between India and West Indies and Kochi and Visakhapatnam hosted ODI matches. So only the grounds present in Madhya Pradesh is devoid of oppurtunities of hosting an international match.

Holkar Stadium in Indore last hosted a match in December 2011 and Gwalior in February 2010. After that there was no match scheduled till date, so it’s a concern for the MPCA.  

MPCA boards think that they are not getting matches for a while now. They don’t know the reason behind this. The MPCA is not part of the BCCI working committee so they don’t know what is happening within the offices of the board but they are surely going to try and find out this is what Menon said to the Indian Express. MPCA hopes to get few matches hosted in Gwalior and Indore in recent times.
