Tata To Vivo: New Title Sponsor For Upcoming IPL 2022 Season

The upcoming IPL 2022 season will have a new title sponsor, with Vivo backing out and Tata taking over.

IPL 2022 season

‘Tata’ Group has become the title sponsor of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2022 season) replacing ‘Vivo’. ‘Vivo’ has been the title sponsor of the IPL in the previous cycle. However, due to the ongoing tensions on the Indo-China border, ‘Vivo’ has to skip a phase of the IPL in 2021. ‘Dream 11’ has replaced ‘Vivo’ in that season of the Indian Premier League. The chairman of IPL, Brijesh Patel has confirmed that the ‘Tata’ group will be the title sponsor of IPL from the next season. The general secretary of BCCI, Jay Shah has also welcomed the ‘Tata’ group as the title sponsor of IPL.

‘Tata’ is a renowned name in the Indian industry and the emergence of the ‘Tata’ group will certainly add more value to the competition. The IPL might be held in Maharashtra this year. However, it is not yet confirmed. The BCCI will certainly check the possibility of organising this year’s IPL in India. The players will be in the bio bubble and no crowd might be allowed to spectate the matches.

The Latest Update Regarding The Title Sponsor Of IPL 2022 Season

The IPL 2022 season will consist of 10 teams from this season. Two new teams from Lucknow and Ahmedabad will now compete along with eight other teams. The Lucknow franchise has shown their interest to bring in KL Rahul as their captain. David Warner is also under their radar. On the other hand, the franchise from Ahmedabad is looking to get Hardik Pandya as their captain. Ishan Kishan and Rashid Khan are also under their radar. These two new sides will be allowed to pick three players in the draft before going into the mega auction. This mega auction might be the last auction of the Indian Premier League.

The franchises in the IPL 2022 season will now be asked to groom their own players and the model might be the same as the English Premier League. So, there will certainly be many new things which will increase the excitement level of the fans in this season. The mega auction will hold a key role for every team as a strong base will be the key to success for them in the upcoming years. The players like Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey and Shikhar Dhawan can become captains of their respective franchises. So, the franchises who don’t have an obvious captaincy option after the retention can go for these players in the mega auction.

These players have a huge experience of playing international cricket as well as the Indian Premier League. However, the bio bubble will certainly affect the mental health of the players and few foreigners are not comfortable with it. The place of occurrence of this season’s IPL will also hold a key role in selecting players for the franchises. However, in the near future, we might see the teams playing in their home stadium. So, the teams will look to strengthen their squad according to the home conditions. The IPL 2022 season could be really epic, as per this start.
