Times Pro League: Corporates' find best way to beat the office stress
Times Pro League (TPL) - a Cricket tournament among the corporate houses in India - saw participation of 32 teams for its first season. All teams slogged it out on the playground as bonhomie and fun eclipsed overall team rivalry. New Delhi, March 23, 2018: They say 'All work and no play, makes Jack a dull boy'. This is pertinent in today's world when hectic work life and tedious lifestyles take a toll on physical activities and health in general. Adding a pinch of excitement to the stressful corporate lives, Times Business Solutions conceived a series of innovative corporate Cricket matches titled - 'TIMES PRO LEAGUE' - to encourage cricketing action among Indian corporates. Times Pro League (TPL) started its first set of matches on Feb 3, 2018 which finished recently and the series is headed for its final match now. TPL is India's biggest corporate cricket tournament. It saw enthusiastic participation from 32 teams belonging to corporate giants like PWC, American Express, GMR, Hike, Zee, Ericsson, AON Hewitt, Cognizant and HCL. These 32 teams were divided into eight groups, each constituting four teams. The organisers - Times Business Solutions - provided cricketing kits and branded colourful jerseys to all participating teams. The sponsors include Cleo County, Ocean, GoPlaybook, Decathlon, Ace Group, RedTape and OPTM Healthcare. Ramathreya Krishnamurthi, Business Head, TimesJobs and TechGig is equally ecstatic about the upcoming finals. "Times Pro League was envisaged as an exclusive cricket tournament with the goal to bring together professionals from different work spaces, enabling them to display their cricketing talent and have extraordinary fun. Gladly, we saw a very encouraging participation from all teams and a camaraderie beyond what can be explained in words. I think that this is the biggest take away from Times Pro League," he said. Now, as the tournament heads for its GRAND FINALE, the finalists don't want to leave any opportunity to grab the coveted title. Alok Ranjan, HRBP, HCL Infosystems and his team from HCL is practising relentlessly for the much awaited final match. "We are very excited to be in the finals. We would like to see a lot of supporters from the HCL podium at the finals," he said. The winner of TPL will take home a whopping amount of Rs 1,00,000 and the shining trophy. The runner-up will win Rs 50,000. However, for many winning the final match is more important than winning the trophy. "All the 32 teams were very competitive," said Gaurav Gupta, Manager Energy and Chemical Practice, PWC. Sadly, his team got eliminated in the quarter finals. The final event will be followed by a Prize Distribution Ceremony. The awards have been designed in various exciting categories like orange cap holder, purple cap holder, man of the series etc. However, as Mr Krishnamurthi cited, the success of such events is in boosting sportsmanship and fellowship and of course beating the office stress alongside. This is just a beginning since the TPL organising team is already in talks with many corporate houses for the next season and the new leg. For more updates, click here http://timesproleague.com/
