The Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) elections on June 30 will see BCCI acting president CK Khanna’s wife Shashi Khanna contesting for the vice-president’s post.

Former India Test player Madan Lal, noted journalist Rajat Sharma and Supreme Court advocate Vikas Singh will be vying for the president’s post in a three-way battle.

However, after the filing nomination process ended on Thursday, the most interesting nomination was that of 64-year-old Shashi Khanna. She will be fighting against Rakesh Bansal, the younger brother of former DDCA president Sneh Bansal.
