New Delhi: After a fight of 14 long years, former Delhi captain Ajay Sharma can finally look forward to beginning a new chapter in his life after a District Court cleared him of all charges related to match-fixing which had led the BCCI to impose a life ban on him.

"It's been a turbulent phase in my life for the past 14 years. It's hard for anybody but now that the (District) court has cleared my name of any wrongdoing, I can look forward towards starting a meaningful chapter in my life after all these years. Hope the stigma goes away," 50-year-old Sharma told PTI on Friday.

"I have no bitter feelings against anyone. No regrets that my first-class career came to an abrupt end. I just want to look forward. Now I can at least come and watch my son Mannan (Sharma) play from the stands during Ranji Trophy and other domestic tournaments. I would like to contribute meaningfully in Delhi cricket," said Sharma, a Delhi stalwart who scored 38 centuries and 10,120 runs from 129 first-class centuries.
