Mumbai: Dilip Vengsarkar does not seem to have overcome the setback of losing the recent Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) elections last month. The former India captain and Mumbai stalwart, it is learnt that he has turned down MCA president Vilasrao Deshmukh's offer to head the all-important Cricket Improvement Committee (CIC). The political heavyweight had pipped Vengsarkar in last month's MCA polls by 47 votes.
An MCA source explained the reason behind Vengsarkar's refusal. "Why should he (Vengsarkar) accept this offer? He felt that since the clubs did not vote him to power, he should not hold any post either," said the source.
"However, he is always there to churn out good cricketers for Mumbai and will keep striving for the betterment of Mumbai's cricket in his own way. Nobody can snatch that away from him," added the source. Vengsarkar refused to comment on the issue.
