No takers for Bengal team?

While record-breaking sponsorship deals are being lined up for Team India, the Cricket Association of Bengal is struggling to find a sponsor for its state team, leaders in the Elite Group A of the Ranji championship.
nterestingly, a part of the blame for the in-form team playing without a sponsor goes to the CAB itself. Emami were on a two-year contract with Bengal till the deal expired after last season’s campaign. Yet, Deep Dasgupta & Co. went through four matches this season without sporting any logo.
A top CAB functionary told Newsline today that it is a sad episode for Bengal cricket, given that it is a huge embarrassment for the state association.

A question, perhaps, of being too focussed on external matters -- BCCI elections, Sourav Ganguly's future, whatever -- to spare time for domestic issues?
