As many as 111 clubs are registered with the DDCA, but only 25 of them have facilities required to properly run a cricket club, an investigation by the ABP News has revealed. It has also been revealed that clubs are being ‘illegally’ rented out to other persons in lieu of big amounts.
The clubs are responsible for providing practice facilities, balls and even breakfast to their players but on the contrary, they are extracting money from the young cricketers. This despite the DDCA paying all the registered clubs around Rs 1.30 lakhs every year under various heads.
The DDCA, which claims to organise highest number of matches in the country – around 1000 matches in a year – has clearly failed to keep a check on the rampant corruption in its registered clubs.
