IPL: Vivo dropped as cricket tournament sponsor

India’s cricket board has announced it will drop Chinese smartphone company Vivo as the title sponsor of the Indian Premier League (IPL) this year.
Vivo paid $300m (£230m) for a five-year sponsorship deal in 2018.
The decision comes amid rising anti-China sentiment in India in the wake of a clash along their shared border in June. Twenty Indian soldiers died.
The cricket board had been criticised for not dropping the firm as a sponsor because of the tensions.
In a short statement, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said it had “decided to suspend” its partnership with Vivo for 2020 without giving details.
