DPL 2017

It gives us great pleasure to announce that NTCA is preparing to host it's premier T-20 tournament again. The tournament details will be sent out in a later email once all the logistics are ironed out.

For now, the only information we can provide is that the tournament will start on the last week of September and will be played through  end of October. Games will be played on  2 weekdays and a Saturday each week.

If anyone is interested in putting up a team, please contact Mr. Lovkesh Kalia as soon as possible as there are limited number of team slots available.

An excel sheet has been emailed to all clubs pco/sco, which you should fill out with the availability of players from your club who wish to be included in the DPL Player Draft. Please make sure to fill in all the columns as this will make it easy for the Team Owners to be informed about the Players.

I request you to collect all the player availability information for your club and send THE FINAL VERSION by 25th August 2017 to

Dallas Premier League


September 2017-October 2017..
stay tuned for more detials



I hope everyone is excited as the EC are about the start of the 2017 Legacy T20 tournament. This by far is the biggest NTCA tournament ever and probably in Texas. We have 51 teams that will be battling it out for the top 16 spots to be part of the Champions knock out stage. The next 16 will have the opportunity to be part of the Super knock out stage. We are looking forward to 11 weeks of exciting, competitive and nail biting finishes to see who comes out on top. On behalf of EC and all NTCA committees, we wish all teams the best of luck and enjoyable cricket.

Few last minute reminders:

Check your rosters on cricclubs and make sure all your players are listed there. This is especially important for individual teams. For clubs, even if the player is not listed under your particular team, as long as they are part of any of the clubs teams, then they can play for any of the clubs teams.

I know there has been numerous transfer requests and we have tried our best to keep up with all of them but if you see that your request has not been processed yet, please let us know asap.

The deadline for transfers is over so current NTCA players cannot change teams anymore. All clubs and individual teams can still add players to their roster at anytime as long as they are new members to NTCA. (i.e. if someone wants to bring Sachin/ Virat/Gayle/etc to play for them in the playoffs, by all means go right ahead:))

Any concerns, issues, inquiries must go through the OC so be sure to email them at and they will handle as needed.

Thank you
