Two bank teams pull out of BCCI`s Corporate Trophy
Mumbai: The Cricket Board has revised the schedule of the September 1-8 Airtel Raj Singh Dungarpur Corporate Trophy following the pulling out of two teams from the tournament -- Canara Bank and Vijaya Bank.
As per the revised schedule, India Cements, All India Electricity Board and State Bank of India have been placed in Group A, Group B comprises Tata SC, Indian Oil and Bharat Petroleum, Group C constitutes Air India, BSNL, Chemplast and State Bank of Mysore while Group D is made up of ONGC, Income Tax, MRF and State Bank of Patiala.
BCCI CAO, Prof Ratnakar Shetty, told PTI that no new teams have been added in place of the two bank teams that have cried off and the tournament would now feature 14 teams.
Asked about the reasons for the two bank teams` pull-out from the event, Shetty said while last year the teams were provided with accommodation and given daily allowance, this year the tournament has been brought on par with other domestic tournaments as per the decision taken by the BCCI`s Working Committee.
"They said they were withdrawing as they cannot afford the extra expenses and that the BCCI had changed the rules," he said.
The league match between India Cements and All India Electricity Board at Vishakhapatnam (September 3) as also the two semi finals (September 5 and 6) and the September 8 final at Vishakhapatnam would be telecast `live` on Neo Sports, he added.
