All teams have their individual uniforms in their team colors and this adds to the feisty atmosphere inherent to all Dissotto matches.

Our mission is to promote Cricket as a Gentleman’s Game

The Dissotto Cricket Club has made Discipline its hallmark. Cricket is still played here on the lines of the good old days of Cricket being a Gentleman’s game. Rarely will you find a cricketer arguing with an umpire or with match officials. Nor will there be any kind of fuss when game is in play.

Moreover Dissotto is committed to enthusing youngsters and promoting the game of cricket among the general population.
