New Delhi: The DDCA on Friday said it is hopeful of hosting the fourth and final India-South Africa Test here and has the backing of the state government, a day after the Bishan Singh Bedi-led dissident faction cast aspersions over the cricket body's ability to stage the match.
"We are very positive about the match happening at the Feroz Shah Kotla. We have got the backing of the government as well and are confident of making the November 17 deadline set by the BCCI," DDCA President Sneh Prakash Bansal told PTI.
Earlier, Bedi alongwith many former Delhi cricketers had met Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal seeking his intervention to address the issue of rampant corruption in DDCA and its inability to host the fourth and final match against SA starting Dec 3.
