Mumbai:Mumbai Cricket Association today nominated its President Sharad Pawar to attend the Cricket Board's Annual General Body Meeting in Kolkata on Nov 29-30.

"I have been nominated to represent MCA at the BCCI AGM for all purposes," Pawar, leader of Nationalist Congress Party, told reporters after a Management Committee meeting here.

The Maratha strongman is expected to contest for the BCCI Presidency, currently held by Ranbir Singh Mahendra of Haryana Cricket Association.

Pawar had lost to Mahendra by a narrow margin of the outgoing President Jagmohan Dalmiya's casting vote last year.

This year's AGM, originally to be held in September, was adjourned as different factions went to court over the process of elections and sought an appointment of Observer.

Former election commissioner T S Krishnamurthy was subsequently appointed Observer by the Supreme Court.

Krishnamurthy declared yesterday in a circular to the members that any one can contest from any association and that the Board President would have only one and that too only in case of a tie.

He also disqualified Jharkhand and gave Bihar and Rajasthan the right to vote.

Delhi and District Cricket Association and National Cricket Club, Kolkata, were effectively debarred as Krishnamurthy asked them to get a resolution passed in their respective Executive Committees before attending the elections.

He will begin preparing the voters and nominees list from Nov 27.
