Dilip Vengsakar Resigns As Vice-President of MCA Owing to Supreme’s Court Decision on January 2nd, 2017
The year 2017 seems to be the year of resignations. After Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni stepped down from the captaincy post on Thursday evening, its former Indian batsman Dilip Vengsakar, who has now pulled out from the vice-presidency post of Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) on Friday.
Following the honourable Supreme Court’s decision on January 2, ex-Indian selector Vengsakar submitted his resignation to the MCA saying it was tendered by Sharad Pawar’s decision to step down as the MCA president.
“In view of the Honorable Supreme Court order dated 2nd January 2017, I hereby tender my resignation for the post of Vice President of the association.”
Sharad Pawar resigned from the presidency post on December 17, saying as per the apex court orders on July 18,2016, anyone won’t be eligible to hold a post in BCCI if he ages past 70 years, which Pawar was, and wisely he stepped off without much hassle.
Dilip Vengsakar has a history of his own sitting in the selection committee, some ten years back. After India were thrashed out of the 50-over World Cup in West Indies in 2007 and a lost a close ODI series in England too, Vengsakar lead committee picked MS Dhoni as the replacement of Rahul Dravid to lead in limited overs.
Going by his decision, MSD led India stunned the world by winning the inaugural T20 World Cup in 2007 in South Africa and later won the Commonwealth Series in Australia by beating the hosts in the finals.
History was then repeated as Dhoni guided his country to lift their second 50-over World Cup in 2011 after 28 long years.
