The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had sponsored Chinese mobile company Vivo for the Indian Premier League (IPL) amid a boycott of Chinese products in India. There were controversies about this. BCCI has scrapped the title sponsor's deal for IPL's 2020 season with Chinese company Vivo. But now the question arises, which company will replace the Vivo company? So, this year, Baba Ramdev's company 'Patanjali' has been named for the title sponsor of IPL.
Patanjali showed interest:
The Board of Control for Cricket in India BCCI has removed the name of title sponsor Vivo of the IPL 2020 season. But now BCCI will have to deal with a new company. The way is an auction. Yes, companies have to bid to choose the title sponsor of IPL. Meanwhile, yoga guru Baba Ramdev's company Patanjali is also being named for the auction. People say that Patanjali has shown his interest in becoming the title sponsor of IPL 2020.
Chance to become T20 league title sponsor:
Let's say, Vivo's withdrawal from the title sponsor of IPL this year can give Patanjali a very good chance. If this happens, Patanjali company may get a chance to become the world's most expensive T20 league title sponsor for this season. According to reports, Patanjali can also bid for IPL title sponsorship.
Patanjali's spokesman says:
"We are considering the title sponsorship of IPL for this year, as we want to give Patanjali brand a global platform," says Patanjali spokesperson SK Tijarwala. "In this case, people believe that BCCI used to take the amount of money from Vivo as a title sponsor every year. Now, if Patanjali or a company in India comes instead, hardly that amount should be paid.
Sourav Ganguly says:
"Vivo's exit as the title sponsor for the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) should not be seen as a financial crisis," says BCCI president Sourav Ganguly. Should always be prepared for such decisions and keep your other options open."
