Arun Jaitley: What Delhi's top cricketers said about his DDCA tenure

New Delhi: Some of Delhi cricket's biggest names on Sunday came out in support of Arun Jaitley after he was accused of financial irregularities during his time at the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA).

BJP MP Kirti Azad held a press conference in the capital to 'expose' corruption in the cricket association over the years.

The former cricketer did not take Jaitley's name, but the corruption he claims happened dates back to the last decade when India's finance minister was ruling the roost at DDCA.

 

Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP too had earlier addressed a similar press conference claiming several dubious transactions were carried out by the DDCA during Jaitley's tenure.

However, some of Delhi's biggest cricketers backed Jaitley on Sunday, stating he was among the best administrators at the association. 

Here is what they had to say about their personal experience.
