Sourav: Vivo suspension not a financial crisis

BCCI president Sourav Ganguly has described the suspension of the IPL title sponsorship deal with Chinese mobile phone company Vivo as just a “blip”, dismissing talk that it might lead to a “financial crisis”.

“I wouldn’t call it a financial crisis. It’s just a little bit of a blip,” Sourav said on Saturday, during a webinar.

“The BCCI has a very strong foundation — the game, the players, the administrators in the past have made this game so strong that BCCI is able to handle all these blips,” he added.

“You keep your other options open. It is like Plan A and Plan B. Sensible people do it. Sensible brands do it. Sensible corporates do it,” said the former India captain.
