IPL 2020 Team Owners: The SportsRush present before you list of all owners of all IPL franchises ahead of IPL 2020.
With a successfully conducted auction getting over last night, all Indian Premier League teams are now sure of what they have for the next season. Considered to be an auction which had something for everyone, the forthcoming season should witness intriguing contests.
Out of the 338 players who contested the auction, 62 have been sold in the auction. It is worth mentioning that a maximum of 73 spots were up for grabs before the auction started.
As far as the auction is considered, there is no hiding to the fact that IPL owners are another entity without which even the players will be dysfunctional. It is the owners of the franchises which run the show in its true sense for they form an integral and primary part of a tournament like the IPL.
