New Delhi: The DDCA is set to earn around Rs 2 crore by selling the in-stadia rights for the fourth and final Test between India and South Africa to take place here from December 3. “The DDCA is set to earn Rs 2 crore 5 lakh from the Test. This will be the first time in many years that DDCA will be making profit from a Test match. The tender bids have been given at a reasonable rate,” DDCA treasurer Ravinder Manchanda told PTI today. Manchanda further said: “The DDCA is likely to save Rs 50 lakh from the tendering process.” Live Cricket Scorecard: India vs South Africa 2015, 1st Test at Mohali

He added that contract for online ticket sales has been given to DNA. It was only last week that the controversy ridden DDCA got the Delhi High Court nod to stage the game. The Court appointed Justice (retired) Mukul Mudgal as observer for the five-day match.

The series between India and South Africa is currently poised heavily in the home team’s favour with a win in the first Test for them at Mohali following a heavily-rain affected draw. They’re presently in the driver’s seat against the visitors on a dust bowl at Nagpur with South Africa needing more than 230 runs on a rank turner with just eight wickets in hand. In most likeliness, India will win the match and seal the series before the camp shifts to Delhi. ALSO READ: DDCA pays Rs 50 lakh worth entertainment tax ahead of India vs South Africa 4th Test

South Africa have struggled through the series and their batsmen have looked hapless on the dust bowls where Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja have wrecked havoc. In all fairness, the Indian batsmen themselves have not been able to deal with the volatile nature of the surfaces.
