On May 14, 2012, New Zealander Daniel Vettori, captain of the Royal Challengers Bangalore IPL team, will join leading executives from major Indian IT companies as the five category winners are announced at the Bangalore v Mumbai IPL match at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore.( Daniel and fellow NewZealander and Chennai Super Kings player  Scott Styris are investors in Pingar... see separate story: Image of the Day).

The Pingar Champions League is a way for Pingar and the Indian software development community to work together and showcase the results to a worldwide audience”.
