New Delhi:

The Delhi High Court has asked the Delhi District Cricket Association (DDCA) to clear all dues within 48 hours to cricketers, who are playing at present.

Earlier, the Delhi high court rapped the DDCA on its decision to remove three selectors from their respective panels, who were chosen at the instructions of court-appointed observer Justice Mukul Mudgal, saying it amounted to contempt and the cricket body again "crossed its limit".

A bench of justice S Ravindra Bhat and justice Deepa Sharma said the DDCA has crossed its limit" when the high court was already seized of the matter and has reserved its order on it.

"We think you (DDCA) are testing everyone's patience here. This is contempt of court. Evidently, somebody is over-reaching," the bench said, asking DDCA whether it had informed of the decision to justice Mudgal, who was appointed last year to oversee its affairs due to various contentious issues in the cricket body.

Recently, the sports working committee of DDCA removed former Indian cricketers Maninder Singh, Atul Wassan and Nikhil Chopra from their respective panels as selectors.

Earlier, Justice Mudgal, through his counsel Nitin Mishra, moved the court seeking direction to declare the DDCA's decision as "null and void".
