Islamabad crashed out without reaching the knockout stages for the 1st time.
The Delhi and Districts Cricket Association (DDCA) is yet to pay remuneration of its coaches like Bhaskar Pillay and Rajkumar Sharma and support staffs of various state teams are awaiting their payments but their cheques are yet to be cleared. The due payments amount to Rs 4.5 crore. The players, who represented the state in BCCI tournaments, have been luckier as the parent body transfers their match fee to their bank accounts. Bhaskar and Rajkumar were supposed to be paid Rs 30 lakh and Rs 25 lakh each but which was then revised to Rs 24 lakh and Rs 20 lakh respectively. When asked about this change, DDCA joint secretary Rajan Manchanda said "They had signed the contract where their payment was performance linked. If they would have helped Delhi reach knock-out, we would have paid them the earlier amount. But since they couldn't, they have to settle for a lesser amount."
PTI has got access to DDCA's payment sheets and it is seen that since November 16, 2019, a whopping Rs 1.63 crore has been paid to 11 lawyers, including two prominent active politicians, who at various points fought cases for warring DDCA faction. When a top DDCA office-bearer was asked about the legal expenses, he said, "Suppose Member A has filed a case against Member B, both are entitled to raise an invoice of their legal expenses which will be borne by the DDCA. "So DDCA pays for all the lawyers who are fighting cases where members are pitted against each other," the office-bearer said. A contractor named MSL Jangid JV has been paid Rs 1.65 crore and allegations of fraud surfaced after finance and infrastructure committee member Sanjay Bhardwaj, and treasurer Rajan Manchanda complained about the issue.
