Tata Crucible 2009 Mumbai Questions

Possibly the biggest battle this year in the country, Mumbai proved to be just the battle expected to. (although questions seemed easy)

With both the defending champions- Tata Track and Non Tata Track participating from Mumbai, the final was more than closely contested.

In the Tata Track, defending champions TCS were given a run for their money by Tata Capital and the Non Tata Track saw a 3 way battle between Deutsche Bank, HUL and defending champions Sun Microsystems. The other stage teams were Questa, Crisil and defending Mumbai champions IMRB. (All regional and national champions themselves)

But in the end, the defending champions SUN Microsystems won the close battle, to defend their title at the National Finals in a couple of weeks.

In the external track that followed the teams which qualified for the finals were CTS, Telegraph, Vizag Steel, R.B.I ,Standard Chartered Bank & Electro zavod.
