Disciplinary action against cricketers in DLCL Summer League 2019

Captains/Vice Captains:  Please forward this email to all your players to make sure they adhere to the DCL By-laws / code of conduct all the time, while playing inDCL.

We had an unfortunate situation during the Summer-2019 DLCL T20 league Division C semifinal game between Dallas-Nepalese XI and Epic F16. One of the Epic F16 players that played for King Cobras team earlier in the same league played a significant role for Epic F16 in their play-off Semi-Finals game. DCL rules and the bylaws strictly prohibit players playing for more than one team in the same tournament. Hence, the following decisions/actions have been taken by the DCL Management.    

The semi-final match between Dallas-Nepalese XI and Epic F16 has been awarded to Dallas-Nepalese XI; result of the game that was played will be nullified.

The player "Jaafar Shahabuddin" that played for Epic F16 in the semi-final game after playing for another team in the league stage has been suspended for three games. This player will have to sit-out the next three games that his team plays in the DLCL league.

The DCL management understands that this may not be an intentional act by the Epic F16 captain; however, it’s the captain’s responsibility to do the necessary due diligence before recruiting a new player to the team and to make sure the team understands and follows the DCL Rules and bylaws. If the Captain or the Vice Captain is not sure about any player who plays in DCL/DLCL they can always send an email to dclmgmt@gmail.com and ask them to check the DCL/DLCL database to find out about the player details. We hope that this will serve as a deterrent to all the teams and the players to indulge in such activities. DCL Management will not hesitate to take harsher actions to curb such activities by players and captains in order to make the DCL community stronger.
