MCA to meet Mumbai players and management to discuss team performance

Currently, Mumbai is placed 14th in the points table without a single victory. Thus, if the 41-time-champions fail to win the remaining two matches outright, then they will be ruled out of the domestic tournament


The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) authorities are soon said to call players and team management post the Ranji Trophy season and discuss the team’s performance with them. The cricket association has decided to call every player individually and discuss the Ranji display and reach a conclusion or a solution.

The officials stated that there will be a one-on-one discussion with the players as they will be asked about the difficulties they have faced throughout the season. They further explained that the procedure can be seen as a meeting between a doctor and a patient. Similar to the encounter, if the player does not tell them where the pain is, the doctor (officials) would not be able to provide them with a remedy.

Alongside, MCA will also meet and discuss with the members of the team management. The meeting is expected to happen somewhere close to the second week of January. However, if Mumbai qualifies for the quarter-finals, then the cricket organisation will postpone the meeting.

In order to stay in contention for the quarter-finals, Mumbai will have to win their upcoming matches i.e. against Vidarbha (in Nagpur beginning December 30) and Chhattisgarh (in Mumbai beginning January 7). If the 41-time-champions fail to win the matches outright, then they will be ruled out of the domestic tournament.

Till now, the team has played six games and so far, have failed to register a single victory as it lays in the 14th position on the points table.
