The crucial meeting between Virender Sehwag, who has triggered a virtual players' revolt against Delhi adminstrators, and DDCA President Arun Jaitley will be held on Tuesday to try and resolve the issues raised by the senior cricketers.
Sehwag has threatened to quit the Delhi Ranji team in protest against alleged nepotism and corruption in the DDCA's sports committee but has been told to keep his decision on hold till the meeting with Jaitley.
The star Indian opener has received support from his senior Delhi teammates like Gautam Gambhir, Ishant Sharma and Ashish Nehra, who have also threatened to play for some other state in the upcoming domestic season if their grievances were not addressed. Former Delhi players have also backed the revolting cricketers.
Since both Sehwag and Jaitley were out of town, the meeting could not be scheduled eatlier.
According to Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) sources, Jaitley will also talk to the top office bearers before meeting Sehwag on Tuesday.
Sources said the DDCA office-bearers were supposed to meet today to discuss the players' resentment but will now meet early next week because of Jaitley's busy schedule.
Reshuffle of the selection committee tops the agenda with the possibility of two selectors being sacked from the panel.
The agenda also includes offering BCCI-style contracts to players to provide them a sense of security.
