Former Indian cricketer Chetan Sharma has blamed the Haryana Cricket Association (HCA) of misusing the funds extended to them by the BCCI. In his complain to the Haryana Sports and Youth Affairs minister, Anil Vij, he also made charges of financial irregularity in the purchase of land for building a stadium. While Vij said his department will look into the matter, HCA secretary Anirudh Chaudhary has called the allegations baseless.

“Haryana Cricket Association has received more than Rs 120 crore including IPL as funds from BCCI and most part of the funds have not been used by the HCA. There have been financial bungling in the purchase of the land bought by HCA for the new stadium at HCA, where land was bought first by persons knowing HCA officials and later sold to HCA on higher rates,” said Sharma.

Vij said his department would be looking into the matter. “I have directed the registrar of firms and societies to investigate the legality, records and accounts of all such sports bodies. They would be required to get a NOC from the body to continue their work,” said Vij.

Reacting to this HCA secretary, also the BCCI treasurer, Chaudhary said: “Any amount that is received from the BCCI is only utilized for the objects of the Haryana Cricket Association and the audited statement of accounts is submitted to the BCCI only after which any further sum is released to the HCA.”
