After Gautam Gambhir and Ishant Sharma sided with him in his battle against Delhi cricket administrators, star batsman Virender Sehwag on Tuesday said more players will follow suit.

"More will come out," said Sehwag, who is currently undergoing rehabilitation for his injured shoulder in Bangalore.
The swashbuckling batsman would first discuss the "issue" with the Delhi and District Cricket Association President Arun Jaitley before airing his views in the media, a source said.

The players are unhappy with the DDCA Sports Committee which, they claimed, interfered in selection matters and also indulged in corruption.

The DDCA has said Sehwag's outburst was a pressure tactic to include his cousin Mayank Tehlan in Delhi Ranji team even though the India opener has dismissed the charge.

Haryana Cricket Association has already invited Sehwag to play for the state.
