    Looks like rain may have a say on this Saturday games….It will be really unfortunate for Raptors if that happens. They will be the worse impacted team in that situation and may face elimination. However no disappointments for avenger fan, as they are playing on Sunday : ) Reply
    • September 11, 2014
      I agree Rehan – Rain can change the entire dynamics and can create a lot of heartaches and heartburns. It might be expedient for all teams to read the rain rules and have an understanding to settle the matter on the field rather than take the easy way out but a tie will eliminate some teams and others will see a brand new opening to jump from a tough playoff quadrant to an easy playoff quadrant!!!

        Does dcl rule allow to change the game to sunday if both teams agrees? Reply

    You're spot on Viju … There isn't much anyone could do if nature play spoil sports. I am glad BT won the last game against FHCC, otherwise we could be in hot seat as well. Reply

  8. September 11, 2014
    Isn’t there reserve day, if it rains before the start of game ? In my opinion, incase two teams want to move the game to Sunday (instead of Sat) and be able to manage logistics, only parties mater are captains of both sides. No one else should have any say in it… Reply

    What happen to Phani's leg ? Is he ready for upcoming game against GLCC, what is the latest injury report please, is he ready for the weekend game as this is crucial game and few teams are dependent on outcome of this game. Reply
  12. September 13, 2014
    Pokiris and Arsenal have been given a walkover by their respective opponents Reply
  13. September 13, 2014
    Smart move, it is best to keep the team rested and not injured as they have secured place in playoffs. Teams have come so far and don't want to risk injury to team members, instead plan for their matchups. I would be surprised if Bridges is coming to match with GLCC full loaded, they should take it easy, unless by their win they get favorable matchup in playoffs:) Reply
    • September 13, 2014
      @ Viju Fan – Buddy I am scratching my head on this one. Pokiris and Arsenal did not give a walkover rather they were given a walkover. So where is the smarts in that. I am sure Bridges will also be happy if GLCC gave them a walkover else the Bridges-GLCC game is a statement game and last chance to test how good your team is. I did not worry about injuries when we played Scorchers as we needed our guys to be in form and a fifty by Maulik has done wonders to his confidence level not to mention there is one more threat that Glads opponents have to deal with. Reply
  14. September 13, 2014
    Apologies, to not read your update correctly. There are 2 sides of coin, I know you like to go for Head, I go for Tail side of it and rest as team who has come so far are sure to be capable for taking further. Maulik is guy who has become major threat in playoffs for other opponents… Reply

      All NPP games are washed out and teams trying to find other ground I was told so too ground in Lansing is unplayable and teams looking for alternatives ….. A GLCC draw means E11ers and Hurricanes are out Reply

  18. September 13, 2014
    BT vs Scorchers is a draw on account of rain/ground conditions but I felt game could have been played as Indus /e11ers and DH/warriors game took place in neighboring ground Reply
  19. September 13, 2014
    GO GLCC !!! Reply
  20. September 13, 2014
    Yes, that was our intentions as well. That’s why both teams went to ITC to find dry ground but couldn’t. As Warrior/DH game was being played in 1 field and 2nd playable field was taken by Indus/E11s. Rest of fields there, ground conditions were not playable. At that time Both teams and umpires agreed to call it off and split points. Reply
  21. September 13, 2014
    Yes it is better to be safe then sorry, do not want team players to be injured due to risky / wet playing conditions especially when BT are in playoffs. Reply

    Who was star performer in GLCC ? Reply
  24. September 13, 2014
    Thanks vijubhai, lot of dfl owners are asking if they are behind by 1800+ points, do they still have chance ? My response is race is still on. Although today’s rain impacted teams which did not play affects players chance to catchup too. Any thoughts / inputs on this ? Reply
  25. September 14, 2014
    Heard from Bridges captain Kishan that GLCC did not want to play and wanted the 2 points to qualify.They had to play because Bridges found a new ground for them .Bridges had to travel to many grounds to try and make a game happen since they wanted to play.In addition they asked Kishan for a walkover but he said no.
    Bridges could not field a good team without Phani and so GLCC were lucky to win and qualify. Reply
    • September 14, 2014
      get your facts right insider.Talk to Bridges again but don't bs on a forum Reply
    • September 14, 2014
      GLCC played extremely well. Akash Patel batted beautifully according to the situation and Samish bowled too good. Neither phani playing or anything else could have made a differecpnce. GLCC played better cricket and they won. I don't think any of the above mentioned conversation happened. Reply
  26. September 14, 2014
    Can someone please update on Avengers Vs Knockers game ? I see that Avengers and Strikers are the teams most less talked about of and are strong contenders for DCL trophy too…. Reply
    • September 14, 2014
      Avengers 40 all out …. Knockers chased it in 18 overs so knockers get the bonus so Glads play Raptors and Arsenal plays Avengers Reply

        Cougars 38/2 in 11th over chasing 100 or so as Spartans scored 100 ….. Game evenly poised…. Reply

    Has Hari won the DCL Analyst Contest after this weekend's development ? Reply
    • September 15, 2014
      I believe Hari won the overall contest. Congrats Hari!!!! Terrific accomplishment. Hari – You rock and you are hereby acknowledged as the best of the best. Do all of us a favor – Please quit this business so that others get a chance. I know I dragged you into this by challenging you – It was a blunder like my picks this year threw mud on my face but nevertheless great accomplishment – One that you can remember all your life. Congrats are due to Shan, Hamid and Majid as they may all have beaten the EP Top Rated Analyst. All the guys who picked every week – Terrific job guys. I am floored by your passion and diligence. The great participation made it more fun. The newly crowned Top Rated EP Analyst is Vamsi. Hats off Vamsi!!! So next year if we do this you will have the triple Asterix next to your name. That is sweet. Vamsi – Can you please email me your address so that I can cut out a check from our sponsor to you. I already have the money in hand so can mail it or hand it when we meet whatever works for you better. It was no easy feat predicting this year as every week was so competitive with quite a few games often decided by less than 5 runs. Chetan please clarify how you plan to distribute your award – Four way/Five way or just Hari alone or ask the guys who beat the Analysts for their opinion. Hamid has made his feelings public. Hope the others who beat the top rated EP Analyst make their feelings known. At the end it is your call …. The wording was a little vague …. lesson learned I guess …. but thanks Chetan for sponsoring this award ….. it sure made it so special and gave an incentive to people …. It is one of the best return for the buck kind of deals you could have made ….. I was following these guys so closely ….. Reply
  33. September 16, 2014
    I just got confirmation from Mayur that the following 4 DCL Analysts beat the top rated EP Analyst:
    Hariharan: 142 out of 187 correct
    Hamid: 139 out of 187 correct
    Shan: 138 out of 187 correct
    Majid: 137 out of 187 correct For the record the top rated EP Analyst Vamsi got 136 out of 187 correct. Tied games were not counted as a win or loss. Walkover games were counted as a win/loss. Two games that were mutually abandoned BT vs Shockers and Blues vs Twins were also not considered. Chetan – My suggestion is issue a check of $25 each to all 4 winners as the wording was a little vague and all 4 winners have something to cheer about for a terrific accomplishment. It was no mean feat. Hats off guys!!!! The winners take it all!!!! Reply
    • September 17, 2014
      Ended up 134 out of 187, would have to put more efforts next year for regular season. Let's see how the playoff goes..!!! Congratulations to Hari, man its extremely difficult to reach up to his level. Kudos to Hamid, Shan, Majid… Congratulations to Vamsi too. Reply
  34. September 16, 2014
    OK Buddy. I am aligning with your judgment, your judgment is my execution order:). Do not see any issue in distributing the money. Congrats to Powerful 4 – Hari, Hamid, Shan and Majid, who beat the top EP Analyst Vamsi.
    You are the Best of the DCL Minds….:) Can you please send me an email with your complete name and address the check needs to be mailed to. I will have the prize money distributed next week for sure. Reply
  35. September 16, 2014
    Thanks. Chetan…………….
    I am glad finally you made right call. It is not money all the time, it is all what we say and stick with that. I knew Vijju Bhai is the guy who consider things with all views and I was sure he will help you to pick the things which build the confidence on sponsor like you. No doubt, it was a great fun to play prediction game and DFL as well. Hats off to you, Viju, Mayur and all who were involved in this. At the end, I would request you to send my $25 check to the youngest, but, very active in DCL cricket. He works all the time behind the screen tirelessly with Glads team day or night. But, the most important thing amazed me is his dedication and passion with the game cricket even he does not play. I saw him in MDCL night tournament and it was very chilly to stay and watch the game. But, he was there both nights helping and cheering his Dad. His name is David Zachariah. Please send my check to him. David – Please accept it. This is your reward for your passion to cricket game. Reply
    • September 16, 2014
      Hamid Bhai – This was totally unexpected and unnecessary. I do appreciate the kind words more than you know it but the thought behind the action has meant more to me than anything else. It is greatly appreciated. I do agree that he takes all the firing from me and never says one word and is often unnoticed and forgotten in the din of competitive cricket. When he comes back from school I will let him read it for himself but I am sure he will feel happy at the thought behind the same. You are correct but We/I could not do DFL or half of the Glads website activities without his active involvement. Glads scorecard would be non existent and I would have abandoned DFL long ago if he was not willing to do the hard yards as data entry is tough to do week in and week out. At the end I know what I can or cannot pull off and I agree he works very hard from getting up at 5:30 AM on game day as I insist that being late for a game is unacceptable but he gets up without grumbling on his own with his own alarm. One time he overslept and I promptly left him at home and he never again missed a 5:30 AM alarm 🙂 Reply
    • September 17, 2014
      I completely agree with Hamid Bhai's comments! Please hand David my share as a small gift for his tireless contribution to this website, and cricket in general. Thanks David!!! Reply
    • September 18, 2014
      Uncle Hamid and Majid, thank you for your kind words, the thoughts and words mean more than the money ever could. Congratulations on being an absolutely great analyst and having a great dedication towards DCL. I feel guilty taking the money as it is your hard work which led you to getting the reward. I think I'll invest the money in cognizant so that hopefully the money will grow. There are no words to express how grateful and thankful that I am to both of you. Reply

    Which team won MDCL night tournament ?
    Semis n finalist teams? Reply
  38. September 18, 2014
    MDCL Semi-Finals: … Unicorns ( loaded with Glads players ) beat NCC ( loaded with Avengers and Knockers recruits ) in a well fought game. I think NCC scored around 57, which was chased by unicorns in about 14 overs. Rockets ( loaded with GLCC players ) had a very close game against Falcons. Chasing 61, Rockets needed 19 in 3 overs. DCL stalwart Binod bowled a gem of an over to GLCC's Ajith, giving away only 1 run. However the next over was looted for 15 runs ( courtesy of a dropped catch that landed for a six). 3 runs in the last over was too little for Binod to defend. Rockets won the game in last over. MDCL Final saw something very special which is a rarity in T-Ball games. An unknown figure named Harmit Singh hit out 5 huge consecutive sixes off Arun in 14th over of the game. This is the same fellow whose six changed the game in SF. Three of those sixes landed in adjacent fields. We saw a massacre, as Rockets scored 107 in 14 overs. Unicorns also started well as the famous duo of Maulik and Ronak U, started briskly taking the team to 33 in 3 overs. But they lost track after that and the whole team got bundled out for around 60. We saw some interesting games in round games as two of those games ended up in a tie.. Falcons/NCC and Rockets/FCC are the two games that ended up in a tie in round games. Reply

      I was not at the game to observe the game. This will need someone at the game who was either a participant or observer to state what happened especially if you are looking for a ball by ball detail but looks like the game was a cracker and game came down to the last ball. Based on what was conveyed to me the Warrior batsman took off from the non striker end and was pretty much at mid pitch before the ball was released making the run out very easy for the bowler. Realizing many such tricky issues can come into play especially in the Playoffs the DCL Committee had re-released a number of DCL Rules clarification and updated DCL Rule Book. The one that would be appropriate in this case would be "D. Bowler attempting to run-out non-striker before delivery
      1) Can a bowler attempt to get a batsman out who tries to take undue advantage of the bowler by leaving the non-striker end early? Does the bowler have to give a warning?  We believe the bowler has every right to attempt a legitimate run-out in such a scenario. No warning needs to be given however giving a warning is appreciated. The applicable rule in these circumstances is “The bowler is permitted, before releasing the ball and provided he has not completed his usual delivery swing, to attempt to run out the non-striker. Whether the attempt is successful or not, the ball shall not count as one of the over. If the bowler fails in an attempt to run out the non-striker, the umpire shall call and signal Dead ball as soon as possible.” Reply
