Any CBSE affiliated, government, central government school may participate in this tournament. Every team can have a maximum of 15 players, and must have a minimum of 11 players. 10 Batsman have to bat and 5 bowlers have to bowl pattern tournament but can not less than 11 players.
School must fill the online registration form on DLCL.IN to participate in the tournament. If a school doesn’t have a team but may happen that few players have been playing but unfortunately that school cant make a team due to less participants, in this circumstances DLCL wish to give chances for those players by conducting an open trial for those players and minimum one or maximum two teams can participate in this tournament thru open trial (team name shall be given by DLCLe.i Rest of school Team A & B)
Whatever I can so far think of is this:
As of now, a total of eight (8) teams can play. Each match shall consist of one game of 20-overs (tentative) for both sides. There will be two brackets of games going on, the Winner's Bracket and the Loser's Bracket. All teams will start playing in the Winner's Bracket. As each team loses, they will be sent off to the Loser's Bracket. The round the team played before losing will be taken in consideration in placement in the Loser's Bracket.
Teams will be paired up against each other in random order in the first round. Each team will compete against another team in a match. The winning team of the match will go on to the second round. The losing team will be sent off to the Loser's Bracket. The same procedure will happen again in the second round and the third round, each time the teams competing to go on to the next round. The third round will have only two teams in a face-off for the Finals.
The teams who will have lost in the first, second, and third round will have a chance to get back in and compete for the Finals. From the first round of the Winner's Bracket, there will be four defeated teams. The teams will be paired up and shall compete for the second round. Two teams will win and will verse two incoming second-round defeated teams. Among them, two teams will win and will face each other for the next round, which is the semi-Finals. The winning team will face the incoming semi-Finals defeated team for their final chance to go off to the Finals.
Whichever team shall have won the semi-Finals shall compete against each other. One team will come from the Winner's Bracket. The other team shall come from the Loser's Bracket. They will play two matches. The team from the Loser's Bracket must win both matches. The team from the Winner's Bracket only have to win one match. Because this is double-loss elimination, the team on the Loser's Bracket have already lost once. A second loss means that they are eliminated. Therefore, they cannot afford to lose even one match in Finals. On the other hand, team from the Winner's Bracket have not lost once. They can still afford to lose one game, but not both, as that too will mean elimination.
One team or one school shall pay as nominal contribution e.i 2500/- per team/per school. It must be paid in account of Human Research & Development Organisation, New Delhi.
The tournament is being organized by DLCL to give a guaranteed fair play and unbiased platform to the players to develop self confidence in the schooling players.
