MPCA seeks tax waiver for Ind-WI ODI

Indore, Nov 28: The Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (MPCA) has urged the state government to waive off the entertainment tax for the fourth one-dayer between India and the West Indies at the Holkar Stadium here on December 8.

"We have requested Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan to waive the entertainment tax, which would be around Rs. 75 lakh," MPCA CEO Rohit Pandit said at a press conference here on Monday.

The stadium, having capacity of 21,000 spectators, would fetch revenue worth Rs. 2 crore, he said.

For the match, S Ravi (Chennai) and Tony Hill (New Zealand) will be the on-field umpires, Sudhir Asnani (Indore) will be the TV umpire and Nandan of Bangalore will be the fourth umpire. Former Australia batman David Boon will be the match referee and Kamlesh Thakkar (Maharashtra Cricket Association) will be the BCCI observer, he said.

The teams will arrive here by a chartered flight from Ahmedabad, that hosts the third ODI, on December 6, he added.
