Rains have almost trimmed half of the matches this season in Mumbai and most of the players are eagerly waiting to play a match or two where they can showcase their hard work and practice which goes in the nets. Hence in a move by MCA, they have organized a tournament outside Mumbai in Patiala for the U19 team & in Andhra Pradesh for the U16 team.
