MUMBAI: Even as the exit of VIVO as title sponsor of the Indian Premier League has left a Rs 2.18 billion hole in the Indian cricket board's coffers that cannot be filled, there still remains a few other sponsorship slots that the BCCI is hopeful of filling in the coming days. 

For the uninitiated, fantasy sports platform Dream11 is the title partner for IPL 2020 having won the rights with a Rs 2.22 billion bid, just under 50% of the Rs 4.4 billion that Chinese smartphone major Vivo had been paying the Board of Control for Cricket in India.
