IPL 2022: Bollywood stars Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone to bid for new IPL teams
According to recent reports from other sources, the Bollywood superstars Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone are set to bid for the two new franchises that are going to take part in the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League.
The popular Premier League club, Manchester United is likely to bid for the two new franchises on 25th October in Dubai. However, the Indian Premier League already has some big names from the Bollywood industry.
The "King of Bollywood" Shah Rukh Khan will be the first one to be remembered with his franchise Kolkata Knight Riders. Then comes the Punjab Kings owner Preity Zinta who is in the search of their first title win in the Indian Premier League.
Deepika's father was once an All England Badminton champion whereas, Ranveer Singh is the brand ambassador of the popular Basketball league NBA.
The results are likely to be revealed after India vs Pakistan match:
A plethora of companies is expected to take part in the bidding process for the two new franchises for the Indian Premier League.
Considering the reports from Outlook, "The BCCI is not keen to give the rights to an off-shore company and will prefer Indian buyers but power equations can change the script dramatically," quoted as same as in Outlook.
Moreover, the results are likely to be revealed after the most awaited match of the T20 World Cup, India vs Pakistan which is going to take part in the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on 24th October.
"Although it is a closed bid, we are expecting a fair and transparent process. The only hodgepodge could happen in the verification/elimination stage but it is unlikely BCCI will adopt unfair means to favour particular companies," the source added.
In addition to that, a source claimed that Ahmedabad and Lucknow will be the two new teams that will take part in the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League. Besides, Dinesh Karthik has come up with a hilarious tweet after he got learned about the buzz.
