DDCA president Rajat Sharma said on Monday, "We had plans to honor Sehwag, Gambhir and Kohli and now we have decided against it because the BCCI is not even inaugurating the IPL."
Sharma said, "We have also decided to donate Rs.10 lakh to the Delhi Police's martyr fund, so far 90% of the tickets have been sold." DDCA has decided to give VIP passage to former international players in this match in this match.
