The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) has come up with the idea of celebrating the golden jubilee of the legendary Sunil Gavaskar's Test debut against the West Indies at Port of Spain in 1971. This particular point has been added to the agenda which is listed for the Apex Council meeting now to be held on August 18. Earlier, the meeting was scheduled to be held today but was postponed. The 71-year-old former India captain was the first batsman to reach 10,000 runs in Tests. He finished with 10,122 runs in 125 Tests with 34 hundreds and 3092 ODI runs from 108 matches.
"To discuss about a plan to celebrate the occasion of Mr. Sunil Gavaskar completing 50 years of his Test debut on 6th March 2021," read the additional agenda, a copy of which is in possession of PTI.
Apart from this, the MCA is set to discuss about conducting a virtual Annual General Meeting (AGM) in the meeting.
