Tendulkar likely to buy Mumbai Masters in IBL
New Delhi: There will be a dash of cricket in the inaugural Indian badminton League with star batsman Sachin Tendulkar set to be part of a conglomerate to buy the Mumbai Masters franchise in the event.
Tendulkar will be part of a conglomerate, which is in the process of buying the Mumbai Masters, according to highly-placed sources in the Badminton Association of India.
"Tendulkar is in the process of buying the Mumbai Masters. He would be the external face of the Mumbai team like Shah Rukh Khan, who promoted his team Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL," a BAI official told PTI on condition of anonymity.
"He will own a share in the franchise, while the rest will be owned by two to three other companies. He will be one of the partners," the source added.
The Indian Badminton League took a huge step forward when it announced its first franchise -- the PVP Group that successfully bid for the Hyderabad Hotshots.
Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, Delhi, Bangalore and Lucknow are the six cities that will feature in the first edition of IBL. The owners of teams -- Mumbai Masters (Mumbai), Pune Vijetas (Pune), Rajdhani Smashers (Delhi), Karnataka Kings (Bangalore) and Lucknow Warriors (Lucknow) -- have been decided but will be officially revealed later this month.
