Shreyas Iyer and Shivam Dube have come under the scanner for missing Mumbai’s Ranji Trophy clash against the Railways. The Ranji game has played after three days of the West Indies series while the next match of Team India on January 05. Shivam Dube and Shreyas Iyer didn’t play this Ranji game. Both said that BCCI gives them to permission to take rest but an MCA (Mumbai Cricket Association) official said that we checked with the selectors, we were told that there was no such instruction sent out to them from the selectors.

“It’s an unfortunate episode for Mumbai cricket. They told us that they had been ‘advised rest’ by the BCCI. However, when we checked with the selectors, we were told that there was no such instruction sent out to them from the selectors, at least. So, who asked them to rest? The physio of the Indian or the trainer? Or did they choose to rest themselves and fired from the Board’s shoulder? This is something that no one in the MCA, including the selectors, has appreciated. This issue will surely be discussed in the next Apex Council meeting of the association. We may take some sort of action soon,” a top MCA official told TOI on Friday.

“Eknath Solkar went from the crematorium, after his father had expired, to the Brabourne Stadium and won Mumbai the Ranji final. Sudhakar Adhikari got married at 9.03 am and then rushed to Brabourne Stadium, scored a hundred, and went back to the reception hall in the evening to celebrate with his teammates. Today’s youngsters just don’t have the same kind of commitment towards Mumbai,” another MCA official said.
