In 1983, Kirti Azad, a member of India’s World Cup winning team, applied for the Delhi senior team selector. Kirti has done so at the request of former veteran spinner Bishan Singh Bedi. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has recently set the upper age limit for national selectors at 60 years but it remains to be seen whether there are separate conditions for Delhi and the District Cricket Association (DDCA).

“I was asked by my ‘captain’ Bishan Singh Bedi and many cricket fans if I could bring back the glory days of Delhi,” he said.
Earlier in the BJP, Azad is now associated with the Congress. When Arun Jaitley was the chairman of DDCA, he had differences with Azad. He told Azad that he did not believe there would be any problem in working with new president Rohan Jaitley.
Rohan is the son of former BJP leader and late Union Minister Arun Jaitley. The 611-year-old, who has played seven Tests and two ODIs for India, said: “I had no major dispute with Arun Jaitley. Yes, we could not agree on some issues and I was very vocal about it. As far as Rohan is concerned, I’ll take it.

He said, ‘Rohan is young and he has a new idea. I do not believe in the blindness of old issues. I want to work together for the betterment of Delhi cricket.
