New Delhi : Justice (Retd) Mukul Mudgal, appointed observer for the recent India-South Africa test here, on Tuesday told Delhi High Court that DDCA may be entitled to an estimated Rs 2.8 crore as additional payment from BCCI for hosting the match at Ferozshah Kotla stadium last year.Apart from the amount, the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) would also be entitled to media rights shares for the test from BCCI, which will have to quantify the same, Justice Mudgal has said in a supplementary report submitted in the high court.

The report, which was placed before a bench of justices S Muralidhar and Vibhu Bakhru, has stated that the estimation of Rs 2.8 crore for the test in December 2015 was arrived at on the basis of the Rs 2.5 crore received by DDCA from BCCI for hosting the 2013 India-Australia test.

It has said that the accurate amount would be arrived at only after BCCI holds its annual general body meeting. The report filed through advocate Mishra was taken on record by the court which listed the matter on February 22, when another report would be filed with regard to status of permissions obtained by DDCA to hold matches at the stadium.
