Miffed at the sudden decision of the Indian Premier League's Governing Council to snatch away the final of the cash-rich Twenty20 league from here, the officials of the Mumbai Cricket Association handed over their IPL accreditations to the organisers.

"We have handed over all our IPL accreditations. The office bearers of MCA, managing committee members and the volunteers connected with the tournament have done so as we are not happy that the final has been taken away without assigning proper reason," said Vinod Deshpande, media manager of MCA and its treasurer.

Yesterday in a decision that embarrassed MCA, IPL's GC got involved in a teleconference and decided to allot the final of IPL-7, scheduled on June 1, to Bangalore's M Chinnaswamy Stadium, taking it away from Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium.
