Ranji Trophy legend, former Mumbai captain and eight-time Ranji Trophy champion Amor Muzumdar recently saved his team from humiliation. It is worth noting that his team may be disembarked by an Air India flight due to excess baggage from Muscat, Oman to Mumbai.
Amol Muzumdar has repeatedly helped his team get rid of the difficulties on the cricket court. However, this time off the court, he made sure that his team would not be in trouble. Muzumdar paid 800 rials for excess baggage at the airport, after which the team was allowed to board the plane. In addition to Amol Muzumdar, the manager of the Mumbai team, Arman Mallick, also paid 200 rials.
“Amol Muzumdar has withdrawn 800 rials, and I have 200 rials. We paid for the excess baggage allowance”: Arman Mallick
The manager of the Mumbai team, Arman Mallick, wrote an email to the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA), clearly mentioning what happened.
“Our team had overweight luggage on the way to Oman, but in Mumbai, Mr. Satish Samant helped us clean up the luggage without paying a rupee. On the return trip, our team had the same problem, overweight 165kg. I ignored our request. , Air India’s Oman Airport Authority (showed) guidelines for getting the entire team off and on the plane,” TOI reports.
“Then I called CS Nayak (Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) Executive Secretary) and Sanjay Naik (MCA Secretary) for their help and advice. Both instructed me to pay 1000 Omani rials (excess baggage fee) ) And boarded the plane. As no one had such a large amount, Amol Muzumdar withdrew 800 riyals, while I had 200 riyals. We paid the excess baggage allowance. Therefore, it is requested to investigate the matter and take necessary measures. .”
Later, it was revealed that MCA will repay this amount to Amor Muzumdal And Malik.
A source from the Bombay Cricket Association told TOI on Thursday: “The MCA Apex committee has decided to reimburse Muzumdar and Mallick.”
