Apart from Star and Chettinad, it is learnt that Cycle Brand Aggarbatti has also bought bid document from the BCCI. "There are 21 corporates and large business houses which have bought bid documents. Now buying bid documents doesn't necessarily mean participating in the bid," a top BCCI official told PTI.
While Star Sports are official broadcasters of India's home matches as well as matches in Australia, England and ICC tournaments, thinking about buying an IPL team could be a significant development.
