Get ready for India's first ever corporate trophy

Indian cricketers are gearing up to play against teammates for the first ever Corporate Trophy in Indian cricket.The Corporate Trophy which starts tomorrow,will have 12 teams divided in 4 groups of 3 teams each.
Group A: Air India(blue),Indian Revenue,ITC(league matches at Mohali)
Group B: ONGC,MRF,BPCL(league matches at Vizag)
Group C: Tata SC,AIPSSPB,Indian Oil(league matches at Dharamsala)
Group D: Air India(red),India Cements,BSNL(league matches at Bangalore)

Group A includes the Air India(blue) team which has the likes of M.S Dhoni,Harbhajan Singh,R.P Singh and Mohammad Kaif.According to me,it is one of the best sides in the competition.Indian Revenue,on the other hand,is the weakest side with hardly any big players.The only noticable member is former India opener Amay Khurasia.
Group B is believed by many to the group of death.However,I feel,ONGC and BPCL have an edge over MRF.ONGC comprises of Gautam Gambhir,Virat Kohli,Munaf Patel,Ishant Sharma,Amit Mishra,Praveen Kumar.It has a particularly strong bowling attack.Again,this looks like one of the best sides to me.But,Cricket is unpredictable,and anything is possible.BPCL has Abhishek Nayar,Pragyan Ojha,Manish Pandey,S.Sreesanth.
Group C's Tata SC has Ajit Agarkar and Ramesh Powar as well as Rohan Gavaskar.Indian Oil team includes Ajinkya Rahane,Wasim Jaffer.Rohit Sharma was to play for them as well,however, a shoulder injury has ruled him out.
The top 2 teams in Group D seem to be Air India(red) and India Cements.AI(red) has Yuvraj Singh,Robin Uthhapa,Suresh Raina,Irfan Pathan among others.India Cements has Rahul Dravid,S.Badrinath,L.Balaji and some promising young talent.

The top 3 teams in the league seem to be the 2 Air India teams and ONGC,closely followed by BPCL and India Cements.Indian Revenue seems to the weakest team in the competition.However,cricket is full of suprises.
