Disciplinary action against Preston Knights team Captain and Vikings Player

We have an unfortunate situation during the Spring League 2018 Tape ball league. One of the Vikings players played for two  teams - First with the Vikings team on 3/11/2018 and then with Preston Knights team on 3/25/2018. 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.  

1.    Ramana Vummadi, the player that played for Vikings team first and then with Preston Knights team has been suspended for one game from playing in DCL. He will need to sit out the next Vikings tape ball game.

2.    Karthik Raja, captain of the Preston Knights Tape ball League team, is suspended for 1 tape ball game. He will need to sit out the next game of the Preston Knights tape ball team. DCL management understands that he might not be aware that Ramana Vummadi had already played for another team, but, when a new player joins the team, it's the responsibility of the team captain to make sure that they have not played for any other team and they understand the DCL rules.

We want the Captains / Vice Captains to keep educating their players and ask them to inform them immediately if they plan on joining another team after the end of each DCL/DLCL season.

DCL Management reiterates again that it’s the captain’s responsibility to do the necessary due diligence on players playing for multiple teams 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 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 to make a "level playing field" for all the DCL teams
