Pune:The Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA), has dismissed as "absurd" media reports that former Delhi captain Ajay Jadeja and ex-Mumbai skipper Sairaj Bahutule were being roped in by the association to play for Maharashtra.

"This all talk in the media about Jadeja and Bahutule already contracted to play for Maharashtra was absurd. If at all they are going to represent Maharashtra, then thatdecision will be taken by the selection committee which was yet to convene a meeting to discuss team composition," MCA president Ajay Shirke said.

Asked specifically whether Jadeja and Bahutule would be playing for Maharashtra in the forthcoming first-class season, Shirke said "I do not know anything about it."

Shirke further said when the selection committee sought some clarification on selection policy, the managing committee of the MCA said if it so wanted it can select "two to three"players of highest calibre from other states.

Recently, MCA had taken a major decision by appointing Australian Darren Holder as the team coach.
