Mumbai Cricket Association president Sharad Pawar is the first high-profile cricket administrator to step down in the wake of the Lodha Committee’s recommendations that made him ineligible to continue in the post.

PV Shetty, the MCA joint-secretary, confirmed the receipt of the letter but said the MCA was yet to take a call on the matter. “He has given his resignation to me, honouring the Supreme Court judgment,” Shetty told ESPNcricinfo. “We have taken his resignation letter, but we have not accepted it or acted on that till the next meeting.”

A powerful regional politician, Pawar, 76, took charge of the MCA in 2001. Four years later he became BCCI president, before taking up the same role in the ICC in 2010.
