Due to the pandemic situation, we were bound to halt it for 2 years but due to the grand success of previous years, we couldn’t resist this time. We dreamt about this league in 2017 which did come true with our first edition. Now we are ready with the 2022 edition, after three successful editions. We have an excellent team and believe in the discipline of the sport. This was not and will never be possible alone, it’s a team effort and we are also looking forward to many more editions of DCL and looking forward to the grand success.”
