Vijay Patil, who is the presidential candidate of the Bal Mahaddalkar Group, is being considered to be the most likely winner. Alongside, Amol Kale and Sanjay Naik are Bal Mahaddalkar Group's candidates for the post of vice-president and secretary.

Patil could have a smooth run in the polls but that will be clear only when the final list of candidates is announced. The development comes after former cricketer Sandeep Patil had to withdraw his application due to the conflict-of-interest clause, denying him a chance to contest for the post of Mumbai Cricket Association President.

According to reports, Patil cannot be considered for the role as he is contracted with Star Sports to commentate in Marathi.
