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.
This summer 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 between IPL 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 working.”

Corporate 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.

Siddharth, 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 upcoming weeks.”
