cooperate... err corporate trophy...

shared by straight point on Tuesday, September 01, 2009

bcci has come up with, what could be another feather in their cap, corporate trophy... designed in a way that one can be assured of intense competition... which is starting from today...

if the first season of corporate trophy is successful it might give cricketing world ready made template on how to encash moolah even from ailing 50 overs format... yet another first from bcci... must say when it comes to making money... no one can beat them...

one thing which corporate trophy has done even before first ball is bowled for bcci is that it has buried icl so deep that it can't possibly see the light...

yes you read it right... contrary to the perception... rather than the success of ipl season two its the announcement of corporate trophy which speedup the process of mass exodus of indian domestic players from icl... who were looking for just an opportunity to severe ties... and after the announcement of corporate trophy... no corporate house was willing to weaken their side and hence started calling players on their roll playing icl to severe ties with the unofficial league and pet came the bcci announcement of amnesty to icl players... some cooperation that...

this is how seriously corporates are looking at this trophy...

corporate wars will be fought in open rather than in board rooms for spectators delight... what's more it can bring some much needed oxygen to the dying 50 overs format... and at the same time bring sponsors, corporate culture etc to domestic fold...

fringe players will use this as yet another platform to stake claim as the best of indian domestic as well as international players will lock horns to place their hands on coveted trophy...

the-war... corporate war
the prizes are handsome too while winner will not only take the corporate trophy to display proudly in board room... but will be laughing all the way with cool one crore prize money... the runner up though will have to settle for only fifty lakh rupees... which is not bad for eight days of strenuous workout...

the day is not far when discussing cricket strategies will also be the part of corporates agms... in fact the possibility can't be ruled out that after failing to come to compromise by all other means... we will see anil and mukesh ambani settling their gas dispute on cricket field...

as they say... anything is possible in love and corporate war...


- the schedule...

This is a great opurtunity for lesser known players and an excellant pre IPL league sort..

exactly cpd...they have designed it as 'shopping' platform of indian domestic players for ipl franchisees...

It is pointing toward the fact that there is huge opportunity in cricket today.But cricket is not all about money.

straight point said...

its isn't vikas...but if money utilized properly it keeps the game alive...

Vikas said...

SP,
'Properly' word should be emphasized and should hold gravity.

straight point said...

yes vikas...'properly' is the key word where many muddle up things...

What it also does is gives a lot of players like Dravid, Gambhir a chance to shed off the pre-season rustiness. Esp Dravid who has long back played a 50 over game.

Not every move of bCCi is crap you see.

straight point said...

indeed sam...bcci gets lots of undue crap... as you said dravid is showing signs of good form and had he gone straight to play triangular series it may have not turned out that good...

so all in all good for everybody... :)
