Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) today informed the BCCI that they are ready to host the fourth Test match against England in the upcoming five-match series.

BCCI had asked all five Test match staging associations whether they can hold the games following the Supreme Court appointed Lodha Panel's direction that cannot disburse funds due to them as part of annual subvention.

"We are for cricket and will be able to conduct the Test irrespective of any financial help that we normally receive from," the sources added.

MCA is also holding its SGM on Monday to find out from its members whether they were in favour of the Supreme Court order on sweeping reforms in cricket administration based on Lodha Panel's recommendations.

"That too was discussed and indications are that it will face opposition at SGM," the sources said.
