Sharad Pawar, the former ICC and BCCI chief, has stepped down as the President of Mumbai Cricket Association with the immediate effect. He resigned from the post in an urgent meeting organised by the board on Saturday. However, his resignation is not yet approved by M.C.A.
As per the Lodha Panel recommendations, no cricket administrator can be over the age of 70 or serve for two consecutive terms. Pawar, who was elected as the chief of M.C.A. last year for the third time in his career, is already 76 years old and fails to fulfil the guidelines to qualify for the same. His resignation from the post does not come as a surprise as the political baron was mulling to quit the post from past six months.
Pawar, previously, has also served as the president of Pune International Marathon Trust.
He is also the former Chief Minister of Maharashtra and has also served as Union Minister in Central Government. He is currently the member of Rajya Sabha, the upper house of Parliament.
