Must read




Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) President Amol Kale has died due to a cardiac arrest in USA. He watched the India vs Pakistan match live from the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, New York stadium along with MCA office bearers on Sunday night. Amol Kale was known as a close aide of Deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis. He was there along with MCA secretary Ajinkya Naik and Apex Council member Suraj Samat. 

The 47-year-old Kale had become the MCA president after defeating former India and Mumbai cricketer Sandip Patil in the elections held in October 2022.

During his tenure, the MCA had taken some vital decisions including the move to match the BCCI match fee for all its red-ball players for the upcoming 2024-25 season. 

Talking about the match, bowled out for 119 with an over to spare after being asked to bat first, the Indian cricket team, led by Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya, stopped Pakistan at 113 for seven in 20 overs with Rohit rotating his bowers brilliantly.

Former Australia skipper Ricky Ponting hailed Rohit Sharma’s “outstanding” captaincy in India’s six-run win over Pakistan.

“Rohit Sharma is a very experienced captain, isn’t he? And, I just saw him then and said, ‘mate, your captaincy today was outstanding’,” Ponting said in a video posted by the ICC on Instagram.

“I don’t think he could have done much more. You think about a lot of the bowlers that he’s got in his team. He’s actually had those bowlers in the IPL as well, not only for India.

“So, he understands them, knows when he can use them. But, it’s one thing for the captain to set a plan, the bowlers are going to go ahead and execute it, and Hardik was outstanding.”
