"Tickets worth Rs 52,36,000 were unsold. Why all the tickets were not sold-out? DDCA started online ticket sale quite late that too without proper advertisement," Khanna claimed in a media release.

He also wrote that it was reported recently that a profit of Rs 5 crore made by DDCA but the profit was actually less.

"A news item appeared few days back in some section of media that DDCA earned more than 5 Crores in recently organised One Day International Cricket Match between India & New Zealand held on 20 Oct 2016. After verifying from M/S V.K Bajaj & Co. who are looking after the accounts of DDCA including International Match account also. I was informed from the details forwarded to me by M/s V.K Baja & Co. that DDCA has earned a profit of 3.61 crore approx. only from this International Match."

However contrary to BCCI vice-president Khanna's claim, his anti-group led by Chetan Chauhan in their media release last week never claimed Rs 5 crore as profit.

The release sent by Chauhan faction stated that DDCA has made profits worth Rs 3.81 crore.
