Justice Vikramjit Sen, appointed by the Delhi High Court as the administrator for Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA), countered former India captain Bishan Singh Bedi’s claim that he doesn't allocate enough time for cricketing matters.

"To say that I am unavailable to the cricketers is incorrect since Mr. Akash Lal and Mr. Bahadur, your colleagues, attended a meeting on 29th June 2017, at DDCA and interacted with me," wrote back Justice Sen.

He requested Bedi to find more volunteers to run the DDCA league.

"Since you have brought up
the issue of being involved in cricket, I request you to encourage others to volunteer their time to help me organise the DDCA league, which is a huge task and is imperative for the game of cricket," Justice Sen said.

Bedi had also accused the DDCA of running a "very average" camp recently.

"It is time for us to start camps, identify the right support staff, including coaches and selectors, and do a background check of the cricketers who will be invited to the camps."

"A camp that was held recently, hardly showed a serious exercise as it was seen that many cricketers, who attended the camp were very average, and according to reports several outstanding cricketers were not even called."

"The reason for the continuing mess is obvious. You have hardly shown any interest in carrying forward cricketing activities in Delhi," Bedi had written.

"The cricketers who attended the recent camp were not of my choosing," wrote Justice Sen in response. "They are the registered players of DDCA. We were advised by the selectors and coaches such as Nikhil Chopra and Atul Wassan that a summer camp would be beneficial to the players. Hence, it was organised."

"There are other cricket camps scheduled for August for the senior registered players. I would again appreciate any constructive help you may be able to give."

Bedi had, in fact, heaped praise on Justice Mukul Mudgal, while saying that Justice Sen was viewed as a "very reluctant person" when it came to dealing with matters of cricket.
