DDCA faces government probe as clouds hang over India-South Africa Test

New delhi,November 12: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday set up a two-member panel to probe the alleged irregularities in the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) after the local cricket board sought the CM's help to set its house in order to keep the hosting rights for the fourth India-South Africa Test.

Kejriwal has asked the Sports Secretary KK Sharma and Urban Development Secretary to submit a report within 24 hours.

The DDCA is reportedly running bankrupt and hence unable to meet the Rs. 24 crore demanded by the government as entertainment tax for the Test, which is why they sought Delhi Chief Minister's help following BCCI's warning.
