There's some good news for the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA), as most of its players returned to the Ranji fitness camp on Friday.

However, Gautam Gambhir and Aakash Chopra are yet to join the camp. Gambhir is said to be ill. Paceman Ashish Nehra is back after a day's absence.

The Association, which has been facing a revolt by senior players, on Thursday expressed hope of getting things back to normal soon. DDCA Sports Secretary Sunil Dev admitted that all players would rejoin the Ranji conditioning training camp very soon.

Virender Sehwag, who had threatened to quit the Delhi team for Haryana, is likely to meet DDCA President Arun Jaitley on August 26 or 27. Officials said a resolution would be worked out.

Sehwag had alleged that the selection process for the Delhi team was manipulated by the all-powerful Sports Committee. He received support from other senior players like Gambhir, Ishant and Nehra on the issue.
