The Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) has reportedly asked the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to allot the four playoff games of the IPL's upcoming edition at its international stadium near Pune. As per IPL proceedings, the eliminator and the second qualifier should be held at the home venue of the runner-up in the previous season. The MCA has claimed that Pune should be the automatic choice as its home team Rising Pune Supergiants made it into the final. “Just because there's no 'Pune team' this year, we can't change history and record that this was the venue of the runners-up team of IPL10,” claimed MCA.
