Competition winner draw

As the country remains under lock down, we intend to run another competition (subject to committee approval and a prize sponsor, pair of batting pads) which will be much more challenging then the first as we will be seeking for three correct responses to each question out of four. Its important that the league plays its part in the well being of its member and keeping you engaged in cricket during this unprecedented difficult time.

If you are interested in joining the second competition please email the league at, confirm you wish to take part and provide your full name and club name (if applicable). Members (clubs and players) of the Dewsbury and District Sunday Cricket League are welcomed to join. The questions will be related to international cricket only.
