The Indian Premier League is set to become bigger with the influx of two new franchises which will total to a 10-team tournament. The reports suggest that Bollywood power couple Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh are ready to join the bidding war along with the likes of Adani Group, Sanjeev Goenka and the Glazer family, who owns the Manchester United football franchise to buy the new team.
Everyone wants to bank on the Indian Premier League to earn a huge sum. The Indians are anticipated to know who makes it to the list of two new owners, and they are waiting for the BCCI to make the revelations. As per the reports, BCCI is not much interested in giving rights to an off-shore company and they want to give preference to Indian buyers, but a top official reportedly said that the power equations could change the script dramatically.
The other bidders that are looking forward to raising a bid in the new teams are Torrent Pharma, Aurobindo Pharma, Naveen Jindal, Ronnie Screwvala, a Singapore based equity firm and US-based venture capitalists. The results for the bid will be declared in Dubai on 25 October, a day after the most-anticipated match of India vs Pakistan in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. Bollywood and IPL are like a match made in heaven, as the actors have had a long association with it.

Deepika Padukone used to play tennis earlier and sports runs in her genes as her father, Prakash Padukone, is a former All England badminton champion. Ranveer was involved with the English Premier League and currently, he is the brand ambassador for NBA.
