Electronic giants Videocon keen to buy Deccan Chargers
The Times of India newspaper Friday quoted Videocon Group's chairman Venugopal Dhoot as saying the team was "a good fit" for their brand and would be used to connect to consumers.
Videocon had previously bid for the Pune franchise in IPL auctions in 2010 but lost to the Sahara Group which bid $370 million for what is the most expensive IPL team tol date.
Deccan Chargers, whose prominent players include captain Kumar Sangakkara of Sri Lanka, South African pace bowler Dale Steyn and Australian big-hitter Cameron White, is valued at $240 million but may go for a lesser amount due to a distress sale.
