The Maharashtra government has so far not allowed any team sport to resume in the state and they have also not given a go-ahead for the resumption of training of individual cricketers.

According to another official, there have been requests from several players including Shreyas Iyer, Prithvi Shaw and Surya Kumar Yadav, who are slated to play the Indian Premier League, to the MCA to allow them to practice.

"And hence the president has urged the Chief Minister. We are still waiting to hear from the state government in this regard," the official maintained.

Earlier, MCA had also written to Thackeray seeking guidelines from the state government on the resumption of training.

Mumbai is one of the worst affected cities by the COVID-19 pandemic.
