Mohali: Star-studded Air India (Blue) starts favourite when it locks horns with Tata Sports Club in the second semifinal of the BCCI Corporate Cup Trophy at the PCA Stadium here on Sunday.

Skipper M.S. Dhoni is already in red-hot form and the presence of wily off-spinner Harbhajan Singh and pacer R.P. Singh make Air India (Blue) a formidable side.

The India trio would look to get more match practice ahead of the triangular series in Sri Lanka and the Champions Trophy.

Tata Sports Club, which topped Group ‘C’, will be pinning its hopes on the in-form Rohan Gavaskar and Ajit Agarkar.

Rohan had returned to the official fold in style with a classy 93 to guide Tata SC to an emphatic victory over All India Public Sector Sports Promotion Board (AIPSSPB) in the rain-truncated first Group ‘C’ match at Dharamshala.
