The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has made it clear that there won’t be any dealing with the Chinese sponsors in the future. But for now, they will continue with Vivo who are the title sponsors for the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Though, the cricket board treasurer Arun Dhumal has also said that they won’t hesitate in terminating the current contract with Vivo if the government asks them to do so.
“In the future, we will not give any contract to Chinese companies to build our (BCCI) infrastructure,” Dhumal told The Indian Express.
“There’s no two ways about it, in case the government decides to ban Chinese products and companies, we (BCCI) will be happy to follow that,” Dhumal said.
As many 20 soldiers were martyred at the Gulwan valley during the clash with the Chinese troops.
The IPL was scheduled to begin from March 29 but the COVID-19 outburst forced the cash-rich league to get postponed for an indefinite time.
Though, if the reports are to be believed, the tournament can start in September. The World T20 is also under dark clouds due to the pandemic. It was scheduled to start later in the year in Australia.
