Mumbai: The BCCI has sought an explanation from the Mumbai Cricket Association for hosting England's Performance Programme squad's practice session at its D Y Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai without seeking the parent body's permission.
The BCCI has also written a letter to the England and Wales Cricket Board asking why they did not follow the correct protocol of asking its permission to have ECB's second-string squad practising in India, it was learned.
"The Board has written a letter to us asking for an explanation on the issue and we have forwarded that to Mr Vijay Patil (boss of the D Y Patil Academy) asking him to reply last week. We will forward his reply to the BCCI. It's a question of not following the proper protocol," said MCA president Ravi Savant on Monday.
