MCA banned SRK to enter Wankhede Stadium for five years

The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) today afternoon announced its decision to ban Bollywood superstar and owner of Indian Premier League team, Kolkata Knight Riders Shahrukh Khan from entering Mumbai’s Wankhede stadium for five years.

Khan got into a controversy and was set to be banned for life from entering Mumbai’s Wankhede stadium after getting into a fight with MCA officials after KKR’s victory over Mumbai Indians on Wednesday.

MCA president Vilasrao Deshmukh said Khan ‘has shown no regrets for his action and behavior’. “The managing committee of the MCA is forced to ban Shahrukh Khan from entering Wankhede for a period of five years,” Deshmukh said during a press conference.

He said neither MCA nor the BCCI could support the behaviour of Khan. “Nobody can support such behaviour, be it BCCI, IPL, MCA,” Deshmukh said.
