DDCA's plea for 10-day extension receives no response from BCCI

New Delhi: The BCCI top brass on Sunday did not give any reply to DDCA working president Chetan Chauhan's plea for a 10-day extension to get the required NOC for hosting the ICC World T20 matches at the Feroz Shah Kotla.

"Yes, Chetan Chauhan had written to the BCCI top office-bearers asking for 10-day extension in which we would be able to procure all the compliance certificates. However today being last day for the deadline set by BCCI, there has been no response from their end," a senior DDCA official told PTI.

BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur had set 31 January as deadline for DDCA to get the required approvals from various authorities.

However the DDCA officials feel that no response from BCCI could be because of the fact that both president Shashank Manohar and Thakur are in Dubai for the ICC board meeting.

Meanwhile, the MCD engineers will be coming to the Kotla on Monday to inspect the work being done by the association.
