Indian Premier League 2015 – League and team sponsors

Every April and May, India, Indians all over the world (some if not all) and a handful of other people who bother, are gripped by the phenomenon known as ‘the IPL Madness’. The glamour, the craziness and Danny Morrison along with the loudest voice in Indian cricket, Ravi Shastri, assaulting our ears with no care is here to stay… For at least 2 months every year. With this brilliantly organised and global cricket league comes investors. Companies and people alike who scramble to eat a slice of the pie known as T20 cricket!

This season though in 2015, there have been some interesting companies that are contributing to the finances of certain teams like Kings XI Punjab (who have a condom company as a sponsor) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (who have a career counselling centre as a sponsor). Also certain teams like KXIP and Delhi Daredevils have signed separate CSR partners in accordance with the recent Indian Companies Act amendment.
