The BCCI Corporate Trophy is an Indian cricket competition. It was established in 2009 by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) as a 12-team inter-corporate tournament beginning at the start of the Indian cricket season before the start of the Ranji Trophy competition. The tournament is a 50 over a side tournament involving corporate teams. All the top Indian cricketers are expected to play along with academy cricket players and those who play regular domestic cricket in India.
The corporate trophy acts as a high-profile starter to the Indian domestic cricket season. The BCCI's prime objective is to promote employment opportunities for domestic cricketers in India's corporate houses. The board has invited 12 corporate teams to take part which will involve some of India's top cricketers.
The tournamant initially involved players formerly from the now-defunct Indian Cricket League (ICL). Some of the ICL players said that after the announcement of the Corporate Trophy, they had received calls from their employers asking them to cut ties with the rebel league.
