Amid the much-hyped season; news agency PTI reported that the IPL board has decided to retain all its sponsors, including Chinese mobile company VIVO, which did not go well with the cricket fans.

Despite the recent and continuous tensions between India and China, the IPL governing council decided to continue with China-based mobile phone company Vivo as their title sponsors. 

Keeping in mind, the violent June 15 clash in eastern Ladakh, the central government had earlier banned 59 apps from China including Tik ToK. Following the aftermath of the clash between Indian and Chinese troops, the BCCI had stated that there would be a review of the IPL sponsors.

Nearly, twenty Indian Army men, including officers, were killed in an unprecedented violent clash with Chinese People's Liberation Army troops at Galwan Valley in Eastern Ladakh. "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.

The BCCI's decision to retain Vivo as title sponsors irked many fans as #BoycottIPL began trending on Twitter on Monday morning. "We said we will review sponsorship. Review means that we need to check all the modalities of the contract. If the 'Exit Clause' favours VIVO more, why should we terminate a Rs 440 crore per year contract. We will only terminate if 'Exit Clause' favours us," a Board official had told PTI.

Also, a sudden termination of the contract would not only see the board lose out on a substantial amount of money in sponsorship but they would also have had to possibly pay a compensation to Vivo, PTI further reported.
