In Delhi, it's become an open slugfest. Sehwag's comments have split up the DDCA on the issue of nepotism, but he's now also got support from other star players, particularly Gambhir, Ishant Sharma and Nehra. All of them, it seems, wanted to quit Delhi over this issue, just to support their captain. This isn't a good thing. Delhi has good cricketing infrastructure, and on the field, they've been run reasonably well. If they had their star players playing all their matches, they'd be competing with Mumbai more often. Their apparent destinations, Haryana and Railways, don't have the infrastructure, personnel or skills, that are conducive for quality cricket.
Hope Amol gets the chance to break Kaypee's record
