The fourth edition of the DJ’s Cricket League (DCL), in association with The Telegraph and 91.9 Friends FM, which took place at The Spring Club, on September 11 saw 66 registrations and six teams face each other on the indoor cricket pitch. The draw which took place at The Lords and Barons, Park Street, last month decided the fixtures and the teams. Following a league format of eight-over matches, the top teams from each group made it to the semi-finals. With all indoor cricket rules in place, the league stretched over nine matches and saw nail-biting finishes and impressive performances.

Former cricketer and Bengal coach Arun Lal inaugurated the championship and Sambaran Banerjee was the chief guest. The finals saw The Grid Riders triumph over Wow! Momo Blasters. Snapshots.

Wow! Momo Blasters finished runners-up. “Initially, I did not have soaring expectations. We wanted to get out there and play. All of the players pitched in, and with few brilliant performances we were able to make it to the final. This event brought all the DJs together and despite being rivals on the pitch, it rekindled our camaraderie,” said DJ Harish of Wow! Momo Blasters.

Deeply blessed and touched,” said DJ Akash Rohira, curator and convener, DCL.
