Mumbai: The Bombay High Court on Saturday upheld a civil court's order to stay the five-year ban imposed by the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) on BCCI's game development officer Ratnakar Shetty saying the action was "pre-determined and drastic".

Justice Anoop Mohta directed MCA to accept Shetty's nomination to represent the Bombay Union Sports Club which would enable him to contest the bi-annual elections scheduled to be held on October 18.

The court clarified that if MCA approaches the Supreme Court in appeal then Shetty's nomination would be subject to the outcome of that petition.
