New Delhi : There seem to be no end to Delhi and Districts Cricket Association’s (DDCA) troubles as the controversial body now cannot pay its senior team coach K P Bhaskar his salary due to the bylaws of its constitution.

DDCA’s current account has only Rs 15 lakh while the amount due to its employees run into Rs 50 lakh.

Bhaskar was appointed Delhi senior team coach at a salary of Rs 23 lakh but now they have realised that he is a voting member of DDCA. Since DDCA is registered under Registrar of Companies (ROC), a member is not entitled to any financial benefits.

It must be noted that Bhaskar’s predecessor Vijay Dahiya received his salary as he was never a member of the DDCA.

An identical problem arose when Sanjeev Sharma was appointed the coach for 2013-14 season. The former medium pacer was also a member of the association.

Bhaskar had been appointed coach by the panel selected by Justice Mukul Mudgal. The panel had Chetan Chauhan, Sidharth Sahib Singh, Salil Seth to name a few.

Meanwhile, Manchanda also spoke about the prevailing financial situation of DDCA as it nears bankruptcy.
