The IPL governing council on Sunday decided to continue with China-based mobile phone company Vivo as their title sponsors, despite recent tensions between India and China.
After the violent June 15 clash in eastern Ladakh, the central government had banned 59 apps from China including Tik ToK. Soon after the June 15 incident, the BCCI had stated that there would be a review of the IPL sponsors.
"Taking note of the border skirmish that resulted in the martyrdom of our brave jawans, the IPL Governing Council has convened a meeting next week to review IPL's various sponsorship deals," the official handle of IPL had said.
However, the BCCI's decision to stick with Vivo as title sponsors irked many fans as #BoycottIPL began trending on Twitter on Monday morning.
