This year, for the first time, MichCA’s U.S. Corporate Cricket Championship held a draft of guest players: all participating teams were able to select up to four Michigan players, nominated by their clubs and not affiliated with the corporations participating. The four-round draft took place on Monday night in Farmington Hills, under the direction of MichCA’s Pankaj Mahajan and the tournament rules committee, of which MCA’s Joint Head Coach Vasanth Krishnaswami is a member. NYX Inc. has withdrawn from the tournament and Tata Technologies chose not to make any selections; the remaining seven teams had four choices each. Infosys chose MCA’s Ani Mayasandra in the second round and Blue Cross Blue Shield picked Anurag Yerabati in the fourth round. In addition, Gordon Makin will play for G.E. as a U-19 selection. MCA wishes all three players the very best in what should be an excellent tournament.
