Amol Kale, the president of the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA), passed away due to a cardiac arrest in New York. Kale, aged 47, had travelled to the United States to watch the India-Pakistan T20 World Cup game at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, along with MCA secretary Ajinkya Naik and apex council member Suraj Samat.

Elected as MCA president in October 2022, Kale defeated former India batsman Sandeep Patil for the top post. Despite being relatively new in his tenure, Kale was recognized for significant contributions, including doubling the fees of domestic players and commissioning a statue of Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium.

Originally from Nagpur, Kale had been a close associate of Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. He had settled in Mumbai for over a decade and was involved in various business ventures. Kale held a BE in Electrical Engineering from Nagpur University and was the Founder and CEO of J K Solutions Private Limited and Arpita Enterprises.

During his presidency, MCA hosted several international matches, including the India vs. New Zealand Test and the 2023 World Cup matches at Wankhede Stadium. Kale was also a member of the Tirupati Balaji Devasthan Trust in Andhra Pradesh for three years, where he played a crucial role in acquiring land for the Lord Shri Venkateswara Temple in Ulwe, Navi Mumbai.

The MCA community is deeply saddened by Kale’s sudden demise and is awaiting further details from the office-bearers who accompanied him on this trip.
