MCA President Amol Kale Passes Away Due To Cardiac Arrest Hours After Attending Ind-Pak Match

Mumbai: The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) mourns the loss of its president, Amol Kale, who passed away in New York due to cardiac arrest.

He was 47. Kale had travelled to the United States to watch the India-Pakistan T20 World Cup game in New York, accompanied by MCA secretary Ajinkya Naik and apex council member Suraj Samat.

Kale was elected as MCA president in 2022, defeating former India batsman Sandeep Patil for the top post. During his tenure, he was known for several significant decisions, including doubling the fees of domestic players and commissioning a statue of Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

Hailing from Nagpur, Kale was a close associate of Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. Apart from his contributions to cricket, Kale was also actively involved in religious and community service.

He served as a member of the Tirupati Balaji Devasthan Trust in Andhra Pradesh for three consecutive years and played a crucial role in securing land for the Lord Shri Venkateswara Temple at Ulwe in Navi Mumbai.

Kale’s sudden demise has left a void in the cricketing community and beyond, as colleagues and cricket enthusiasts remember his contributions and leadership.
