IPL fun to watch, but Corporate Cricket important for working people
The Indian Premier League (IPL) season in upon us and although the heat of the league has died down, yet most of the Indians spend half of their time watching and marking the dates of the games. There are a second set of people, who love IPL, but would rather play the game of cricket than just watch it on their television set.
season, Gurgaonites have a whole new reason to come out and enjoy.
The finals of Corporate Cricket Championship (CCC) are to be held on
May 11, Sunday. Corporate Cricket Championship is a tournament
organised by a coporates' sports event organisers, Game Changers for
employees of various corporate house.
The CEO of
Game Changers, Mr. Nikhil Gulati when asked to draw a comparison
and CCC said “you cannot compare CCC with IPL. The
former is an International body whereas, Corporates Cricket
Championship is organised for the corporates so that they could have
a change from their daily routine. We try and finish the matches by
noon so that then they have the whole day. The CCC provides
corporates to live their dreams as most of them left this passion
mid-way. The biggest difference I see between IPL and CCC is that in
the CCC, you can play and enjoy yourself instead of just sitting and
watching an IPL match.”
Since it is
IPL season, it is difficult to say whether the corporates can still
spare time for CCC. Though IPL and CCC are two completely different
things with just one similarity- they are all about cricket. Sanjay from UCOL said “Corporate Cricket Championship gives the
corporates a chance to live their dream, which they couldn't due to
responsibilities. Sometimes, people choose such companies where they
get a chance to play cricket or the sport of their choice while
Cricket Championship, awaited by many companies is a means to enjoy
themselves through cricket and also to bring out the cricketer in
them. The event, organised annually is welcomed by all corporates as
a symbol of sportsman spirit and spread the friendliness.
VSPL says, “I watch IPL a lot. These days I am busy playing CCC.
Since the CCC matches end by noon, I have rest of the day to catch up
with IPL and other things. The comparison between IPL and CCC is
useless. They both are different but I guess CCC is a bit more
important for corporates as we get a chance to play and relive our
old days. CCC helps me to recharge and re- energise myself for the
