Satish Bellamakonda and the Legends team for being in my opinion the best loved team in DCL as they play fair and always negotiate in good faith. I have the highest respect for what Satish has done with the Legends team and for his fantastic set of players he has assembled…… they are all fabulous and fantastic sports and I sure did not want to play them as they are an asset to DCL and we would have wanted them to still be a part of the Playoffs but despite things not going their way yesterday, I am very sure in the coming years they will make all DCL proud by the way they conduct themselves and by their fabulous play on the field. We wish them a happy off season.
Alishan from FHCC and Sunil from Blues for exceptional top notch umpiring in the PQF of the 2018 DCL Playoffs. They got every decision spot on and conducted the game very professionally and set the standard as far as we are concerned regarding what Playoff umpiring should look like. We would like to thank both FHCC and Blues for making both Alishan and Sunil available for the game. We wish the same high quality umpiring was available to all teams all through the Playoffs because much heartburn can be avoided when the umpiring is top notch and unbiased.
