The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) was on a hunt to lock down the title sponsor for this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL) after suspending their contract with Chinese mobile phone company Vivo. The latest update about the same says that the cricket fantasy league platform named Dream11 has been named as the new title sponsor of the IPL 2020.

The cricket fantasy league platform outbid companies like Byju’s, Unacademy, and Tata Sons to bag the title sponsorship for the much-awaited money-spinning league.
