As per Outlook India, film stars, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone are interested in owning an IPL franchise from the next edition. In this article, we take a look at how Twitter reacted to reports of Ranveer and Deepika bidding for the new IPL team.
Two new franchises to arrive in IPL 2022
It is confirmed that two new teams will enter the fray in IPL 2022. Hence, it will be a ten-team event from the next edition. The sale of the two new franchises will be completed on October 25th in Dubai. After a lot of postponements, October 25th has been decided to be the date. It will be a day after the much-anticipated clash between India and Pakistan at the T20 World Cup.
While Lucknow and Ahmedabad are the cities that are likely to get the new franchises, other cities like Indore, Ranchi and Guwahati are also in the race. There is unlikely to be a franchise from any South Indian city.

Are Ranveer Singh @RanveerOfficial and @deepikapadukone going to be part of consortium to bid for new @IPL teams?? No clarity as each member of consortium needs to have individual net worth of Rs 2500 crore? Are they individually worth that much? No idea #IPL— Kushan Sarkar (@kushansarkar) October 21, 2021
