Sachin Tendulkar to co-own IBL Mumbai Masters?

There has been lot of news and rumours about how Sachin Tendulkar is going to be a part of Indian Badminton League (IBL) as a co-owner of the Mumbai based franchise, Mumbai Masters.

Sachin Tendulkar - Mumbai Masters co-owner?

Sachin Tendulkar – Mumbai Masters co-owner?

While it is not sure if that is a rumour or not, one thing is for sure.

Sachin Tendulkar’s presence in IBL will add the color and the flair to IBL that is typical with IPL, but missing in IBL so far.

Just like how Shahrukh Khan, Priety Zinta and Shilpa Shetty added flair to IPL, we expect Sachin’s presence will help improve IBL’s image.

By the way, there is also rumour that Virendra Shewag is planning to be a part of IBL in some way. Lets see how that goes!

 

Dabur buys Pune Vijetas – PVP buys Hyderabad Hotshots

There is more IBL news coming out now with the owners of two more teams identified.

Dabur - Pune Vijetas Franchise Owner

Dabur – Pune Vijetas Franchise Owner

Dabur has purchased Pune Vijetas and PVP Ventures have been announced as the owners of Hyderabad Hotshots.

We already had rumours that Sahara has purchased Lucknow Warriors and Ness Wadia has purchased Mumbai Masters. There is also rumours that Sachin Tendulkar might but one of the teams, most probably Mumbai Masters. Lets wait and see..

 

Lets see who gets Karnataka Kings and who gets Rajdhani Smashers.
