The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) has stuck to its stand, insisting it will go by the decision to ban Kolkata Knight Riders owner Shah Rukh Khan from the Wankhede Stadium.
MCA president Ravi Savant said that their stand towards the Bollywood actor remained the same and Khan would not be allowed in the Wankhede Stadium during this season of IPL 6, scheduled to start next week.
"The MCA stand remains the same. The managing committee had taken a decision of imposing a five-year ban on him (Khan) last year, and it will continue this season too," MCA president Savant told The Indian Express.
On Saturday evening, office-bearers of the MCA had met with the officials from the Mumbai Indians and the IPL. Apparently, MCA's contract with the Mumbai Indians contains a clause which bars the entry of the Bollywood actor within the stadium. It is learnt that MCA do not want to revisit their agreement with the home franchise.
"I don't want to talk much on the issue again. MCA has taken their stand and we will follow," Savant added. IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla had earlier attempted to broker a resolution between the MCA and the actor.
