Byte: ACC has a long and rich history of being associated with the game since the 1940s and 1970s when many of the country's great cricket players were employees of the company. The legendary Madhav Mantri joined ACC as a young executive in 1946. ACC was amongst the first companies in India to offer full-time employment to cricketers during this period. Several cricket legends were employees of ACC during their active cricket careers like Rusy Mody, Ramakant Desai, Bapu Nadkarni, Dilip Sardesai, Polly Umrigar, Sunil Gavaskar and Karsan Ghavri among others. India's Test team at the time often had seven or eight players who were also full-time employees of ACC. So close was this bond that sportsmen affectionately referred to ACC's second name as being "All Cricketers Company".
