Banglahunt Desk: Chinese mobile manufacturer Vivo withdrew its name from the IPL 2020 title sponsorship on Tuesday. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) officially announced the split on Thursday. A statement from the BCCI said the BCCI had no further ties with Chinese mobile phone maker Vivo this year. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has come to this conclusion in a joint discussion between the two sides.
Last Sunday, the IPL Governing Council sat in a special meeting on the IPL this year. It was informed at that meeting that Vivo-e will be the title sponsor of this year's IPL.
Then the storm began to rise on social media. Everyone is claiming that Vivo is being kept as the title sponsor of IPL where Chinese products are being boycotted across the country. And then, under pressure, Vivo was forced to withdraw his name from the title sponsor. Today, the BCCI officially announced the separation.
