Sehwag Lauds Under-fire Jaitley for Being There for Players

New Delhi: Dec 20; He has no love lost for the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) but former India batsman Virender Sehwag today threw his weight behind its under-fire ex-President Arun Jaitley for "being available for players in case of any difficulty".

Finance Minister Jaitley, who was headed DDCA for 13 years till 2013, has been accused of corruption by the Delhi Government. The Delhi government has demanded that Jaitley must resign or be "removed" from the union cabinet to enable an independent probe.

Sehwag, who switched loyalties to Haryana from Delhi and retired from international cricket earlier this year, staeered clear of making any political claim but lauded Jaitley's role in helping players in a series of tweets.

"In my time with DDCA if I ever came to know of any 'surprising' selection of a player, all I needed to do was to inform @arunjaitley," Sehwag wrote.

"And @arunjaitley Ji would immediately ensure correction and justice for the deserving players at #DDCA...Was a nightmare to speak to some others at DDCA but @arunjaitley ji was always available for players in case of any difficulty at any time," he added.

The veteran of 104 Tests is one of the biggest names in international cricket to have emerged from Delhi.
