Mumbai Cricket Association lifts Shah Rukh Khan’s Wankhede ban after 3 years


The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) on Sunday lifted the ban on Bollywood superstar and Kolkata Knight Riders owner Shah Rukh Khan from entering the Wankhede Stadium.

The MCA reportedly took the decision during its managing committee meet. The news was also confirmed by MCA vice-president Ashish Shelar​ during his address to reporters.

Selar also confirmed that the state cricket association has decided not to challenge the ban imposed by BCCI on cricketer Ankeet Chavan, who along with S Sreesanth and Ajit Chandela was cleared of all charges of involvement in the IPL spot0fixing scam by Delhi High Court recently.

Previously, the MCA had slapped a five-year-ban on the actor in 2012 over his alleged misbehaviour on the ground. Shah Rukh had reportedly misbehaved with MCA officials and security personnel at the ground during an Indian Premier League match.

Shah Rukh’s fans on Twitter were quick to react on the development.
