Delhi District Cricket Association (DDCA) president Sneh Prakash Bansal said that it was a collective decision from the management to host Delhi matches at Roshnara Club. Bhansal also opened the door for former players Kirti Azad and Bishan Singh Bedi to work with him in the future.
Bansal and his panel swept the DDCA polls with a landslide victory over former India captain Bishan Singh Bedi‘s faction by procuring more than 70 per cent of the votes.
“The final results will be out in the evening but we have won the elections. Out of 4,300 votes, we had already submitted 3400 proxy votes. So it has been a big victory for us. The members have shown their faith in us and we will have to continue doing the good work,” DDCA vice-president Chetan Chauhan told PTI.
While Bedi faction raised objections about the manner in which Annual General Meeting (AGM) was conducted, Bansal & Co. showed that with the system of proxy votes in place, it’s near impossible for an outsider to win an election.
“The proxy vote system is allowed in company act. We are not doing anything illegal. There was an election and we have got the mandate,” new president Bansal said after taking over the charge.
