New Delhi: Delhi High Court on Monday rapped 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 had again "crossed its limit".

A bench of Justices S Ravindra Bhat and Deepa Sharma said the Delhi District Cricket Association (DDCA) has again "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, in what is likely to be major blow to DDCA.

Recently, the sports working committee of DDCA removed former Indian cricketers Maninder Singh, Atul Wassan and Nikhil Chopra from their respective panels as selectors. Justice Mudgal, through his counsel Nitin Mishra, moved the court seeking direction to declare the DDCA's decision as "null and void".
