IPL 6: KKR owner Shah Rukh Khan and MCA on path to make peace on Wankhede controversy
Kolkata Knight Riders‘ owner Shah Rukh Khan and Mumbai Cricket Association are on the path to make peace over last year’s controversy.
Following last year’s IPL match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians, the Mumbai Cricket Association had banned Shah Rukh Khan from the Wankhede stadium for 5 years after his controversial altercation with the security guard. The Bollywood star refused to apologize for his actions that made the MCA stick to their decision.
MCA president Ravi Sawant will meet BCCI today to decide on the fate of the imposed band.
The defending champions face Mumbai Indians in IPL this year on May 7th at Wankhede stadium and the BCCI are requesting the MCA to reconsider their decision.
While MCA have no intention to change their decision and lift the ban, it would be interesting to see what BCCI does to make peace between the two parties. According to media reports, the chairman of the IPL governing council, Rajeev Shukla has said that SRK has the right to support his team at the stadium.
The sixth edition of the IPL starts on 4th April 2013.
