The Indian Premier League Governing Council will take a final call on Tuesday with regards to the protest letter it has received from the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) against the shifting of the T20 tournament's final from Wankhede Stadium to M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore.

"We had a managing committee meeting on Monday and the members were apprised of the media release put out by the BCCI about the shifting of the final to Bangalore. Meanwhile we are also in communication with BCCI and the Governing Council of IPL on the issue," said Ravi Savant, vice president of MCA who chaired Monday's managing committee meeting.

"Mr Sunil Gavaskar (interim president of BCCI on IPL matters) has told us that they will discuss the letter and come back to us with their ruling tomorrow. We are hopeful it will be in favour of MCA," he added.
