The Maharashtra middle-order batsman, it is learnt, has filed a case on Monday, through lawyer Manoj Wadekar, in the Pune City Civil Court, challenging the ban, enforced by the MCA and BCCI, on playing cricket.
The State association has withdrawn Kale from the Maharashtra squad for a Ranji Trophy match at Rajkot against Saurashtra, after receiving a directive from the Board about the decision to bar him from playing in any competitive cricket event organised by the BCCI or its affiliate units, following bribery allegations submitted in writing by selectors Kiran More and Pronob Roy against the former India `A' player.
Kale was in transit when the decision was taken and returned from Rajkot in disgrace before the Ranji tie could commence. He subsequently faced a MCA inquiry committee in Pune, where he was given an opportunity to present his version of events.
Selectors More and Roy had alleged that Kale had offered to pay them Rs 10 lakhs each for a place on the Indian senior team now in Australia. More, representing the West Zone, and Roy (East Zone) are two of a five-member selection committee which shortlisted probables and finalised the Indian team for Australia.
Kale was not available for comment on his latest move to seek legal redress against the
Board's punitive action. He is expected to appear before Mr. Subba Rao, the one-man inquiry committee appointed by BCCI.
