Union agriculture minister and NCP strongman Sharad Pawar on Wednesday filed his nomination for the presidentship of the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA), a day after BJP leader Gopinath Munde did so, to make it a two-way fight for the reins of MCA at its October 18 biennial polls.

Sharad Pawar has filed his nomination to contest for the presidents post, said Dr P V Shetty, the outgoing joint secretary, whose group headed by incumbent MCA chief Ravi Savant has already extended support to the political bigwig and former president.

Pawar filed his nomination as a representative of Parsi Pioneer Cricket Club and it has been proposed and seconded by Dr Shetty and Savant respectively.
