After Chinese mobile company, and Indian Premier League title sponsor, VIVO pulled out of the deal for this edition of the T20 tournament in the wake of the negative publicity it received after the Galwan Valley clash, the Board of Control of Cricket in India has been on the lookout for a replacement.
While franchises are already suffering losses, according to a report in Inside Sport, it is believed that on Wednesday evening, an official asked a Mumbai Indians representative present on the call about JIO’S interest in the TITLE Sponsorship of IPL.
The MI representative turned down the offer saying that they are not exploring any association like that.
It has also been learnt that the BCCI has sent SOS to various corporate houses like PayTM and Byju’s, but none of them is showing any interest.
