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.

IPL Chairman Brijesh Patel said that Dream11 bid Rs 222 crore for having the title sponsorship rights for the IPL. On the other hand, Unacademy has bid Rs 210 crore, Tata Sons big Rs 180 crore and Byju’s had bid Rs 125 crore.
