Former India all-rounder, who is fighting for the presidency of Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA), has found the backing of his 1983 World Cup mates Kapil Dev and Krishnamachari Srikkanth
"I want to wish you all the luck for the new innings. You are my brother, you are my idol. I have grown up watching you," said Kapil in a video message on Twitter, according to a PTI report.
Srikkanth, on the other hand, felt Lal is suited to the job. "People like you who have played a lot for India, who are honest, should stand for elections. By the grace of God, you will win this election," said Srikkanth.
Madan Lala played 39 Tests and 67 ODIs for India, and was a key member of the 1983 World Cup team.
