Mumbai: Office-bearers of the Mumbai Cricket Association met Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Monday and discussed several issues, including lease of the iconic Wankhede Stadium in south Mumbai.

A senior MCA office-bearer confirmed the development to PTI.

It is understood that a total of nine issues were discussed with Thackeray.
