New Delhi: Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) President Sneh Prakash Bansal on Sunday strongly refuted to the charges of corruption, and said that efforts were being made to malign the cricket body.
"I rebut the charges. They have misrepresented the whole story. The facts and bills that Wikileaks4India was showing were totally false. No bill shown in the sting was accounted for from DDCA. Our balance sheet is ready till 2013. We did not expect a company to do such a thing (sting operation) and some former and respected cricketers to back their bogus claims," Bansal said at the press conference here.
"The companies that we have worked with have all got their documents in place and we have all the records with us which we can provide you," he added.
"Everything was hogwash. All records are with the DDCA with the companies that we have dealt with. Their story is totally false," he added.
"They are trying to malign DDCA's reputation, I condemn all allegations against us," Bansal said.
