Kejriwal’s concern over corruption regarding DDCA is ‘legitimate’: Bishan Singh Bedi
The left-arm spinner Bedi participated in 67 Tests and 10 ODIs for India and took 266 and seven wickets respectively. He came into the limelight in December last year for opposing the decision of the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) to name the Ferozeshah Kotla Stadium after former Union Minister Arun Jaitley. He threatened to take legal action against the DDCA in the event that he did not remove his name from the stadium’s viewing gallery.
With the flight, loop and spin of his balls, he left no stone unturned to dodge the batsmen. He was a master at breaking partnerships. On the field, Bedi always played the game of Bhadrajans like Bhadrajan, so when India’s five batsmen were injured on the bowling being targeted against the West Indies at Kingston in 1976, Bedi saved his lower-order batsmen. The innings was declared ended.
