New Delhi: Virender Sehwag's rebellion against Delhi and District Cricket Association has received support from an unexpected corner on Tuesday. DDCA, vice president Chetan Chauhan has confirmed all the allegations made by Viru on Monday.
Speaking to a TV channel, Chauhan said that several players were chosen to play for Delhi not on the basis of their merit but through a black-door selection process.
Chauhan's shocking revelations came soon after Sehwag got support from his fellow Delhi players Gautam Gambhir, Ishant Sharma and Ashish Nehra. The three players have made it clear that they are also ready to quit the squad if Viru does.
Gambhir said, "I am completely behind Sehwag. There is a need to bring about transparency in the selection process. If things don't improve, I will not hesitate to move out of Delhi this year itself."
Ishant Sharma also supported Gambhir's views. He said: "I am in complete support of Viru Bhai. He is absolutely right about selection issues and things can definately be much better."
Ashish Nehra felt that this is probably the last chance the DDCA has to get things right.
"The manner in which the DDCA functions, I wouldn't hesitate for a second to leave Delhi," Nehra said.
Delhi Ranji captain Virender Sehwag has decided to quit the team in protest against the selection procedures followed by the DDCA.
