Increasing Problem and Corruption in Delhi and District Cricket Association

The problem in Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) is increasing gradually. Corruption and nepotism in the team selection have been a cause of concern for DDCA over the last several years. Recently, Captain Virender Sehwag raised his voice against all the corruption in the state cricket body and threatened to leave Delhi to join Jharkhand next season of Ranji Trophy.

Well, many former and current players of Delhi also joined Sehwag, in an attempt to protest against the interference of sports committee in the selection process. Several senior players like Gautam Gambhir, Ashish Nehra, Aakash Chopra have also expressed their concern over the matter. Selection process is heavily influenced by the outsiders.

The way country’s most popular sport is run in the capital is really very disgraceful. Delhi presented many great players to Indian cricket team in the past. In fact, Sehwag and Gambhir are the two regular openers of Indian team at this moment. So, I think, time has come BCCI should take some steps to eradicate all the corruption and nepotism in the Delhi cricket board. If the game is affected by corruption in the capital, the other parts of the country will gradually be affected too.

I would like to mention one thing that many of officials of DDCA are also active in BCCI and they might try to lead BCCI in the wrong way. This is what I fear most at the moment. Besides IPL, BCCI should also ensure that cricket is being run in the right way in the country.
