Sahara back as Team India sponsor


India’s cricket chiefs thrashed out a compromise with the Sahara group on Thursday, paving the way for their long-time sponsor to remain on board. Sahara had severed ties with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on February 4 for what it said was a “one-sided emotional relationship” with the governing body. After negotiations over the past fortnight, both sides agreed that Sahara will continue as the national team’s sponsor and also field their Pune Warriors franchise in the IPL.
