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 in DCL.

Copy of the Bylaws can be downloaded from the link below



We had an unfortunate situation during the Summer-2022 Tape ball league Division C game between Just Want to Play Cricket and Tek Leaders. One of the player that played for Just Want to Play Cricket team earlier in the same league played game for Shockers against Black Hawks in their DIV C League game and then played game for Just Want to Play Cricket again. 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 Div C match between Shockers and Black Hawks has been awarded to Black Hawks;

1. Effect Immediately , Avinash Dadala  the player that played for Just Want To play Cricket as well as Shockers teams has been suspended from playing for the next 3 games.

2. Venu Katta , being the captain of the Shockers team, is suspended for 1  game during this 2022 Summer Div C Tape ball league. He will need to sit out the next game of the team (post returning from India). He should have been a role model and should have immediately brought this to DCL Managements attention.

3. Just Want to Play Cricket is also warned to update players on Chauka and  DCL website properly so this kind of issues don't occur.

Every team is requested to update correct players name on both Chauka and DCL Website to help DCL.

The DCL management understands that this may not be an intentional act by the Shockers 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.
