Encouraging response for KPL T20

Cricket Local round-up


While the officials refused to disclose the identities of those interested in buying the eight teams, it is learnt that a steel major, a consumer durables company, a real-estate builder, some cine artistes and a few politicians have made enquiries as to how to go about the process. 

A clear picture will emerge only on August 3, when the franchisees’ bids for the eight zonal teams will be opened. The bid document, priced at Rs 10,000 and originally slated to be available from Monday, can now be procured only from Thursday, July 23. A three-day workshop for potential team owners will begin at the Chinnaswamy stadium that same evening.

The KPL will be held from September 12 to 27. Once the team owners have been decided, the player auctions will be held on August 8.
