Mumbai: Miffed at the sudden decision of the Indian Premier League's Governing Council to snatch away the final of the cash-rich Twenty20 league, the officials of the Mumbai Cricket Association handed over their IPL accreditations to the organisers on Sunday.

"We have handed over all our IPL accreditations. The office bearers of MCA, managing committee members and the volunteers connected with the tournament have done so as we are not happy that the final has been taken away without assigning proper reason," said Vinod Deshpande, media manager of MCA and its treasurer.
