Mumbai: Mumbai's deputy skipper Amol Muzumdar on Thursday informed that he had apologised for mistakenly not wearing a shirt with the official logo while going out for toss during the Ranji Trophy quarter-final here against Punjab. However, Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) could not confirm receiving an apology, an MCA spokesman said that since both the vice-presidents,Pravin Barve and Ravi Sawant, who held an inquiry, are in Australia with the Mumbai team, Muzumdar's statement could not be confirmed. Muzumdar said he had on the spot written a full-page apology, which was accepted (including his denial of abusing any player in the dressing room). Muzumdar was even given the kit for travelling to Australia, where Mumbai is scheduled to play against three other countries' champion teams. But few hours before the departure, when Muzumdar was finishing his engagement ceremonies the MCA secretary called him to inform that he was dropped on disciplinary grounds.He accused ''certain elements'' for attempting to ruin his career, which anyway has been on hold after he failed to shine, when it mattered.
