Sanjay, Ajay want to own Ahmedabad team
After Salman Khan, it’s now Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt who recently met with the IPL chairman Lalit Modi and discussed the possibility of owning the Ahmedabad team. He wants to own the team jointly with Ajay Devgan.
Said Dutt, "Yes, I want to buy an IPL team. I am considering the pros and cons before setting the process in motion. After all, who doesn't want an IPL team at this point? Cricket in its shorter format has become fast-paced. I've loved the game since childhood, when I played for the school team. I want to do something for the sport."
Sanjay and Ajay became close friends during the shooting of Ajay's home production ‘All The Best’ and it was their combine decision to own the team.
A source said, "They have decided to own a team together as they are ardent cricket fans. They are keen to own the Ahmedabad team. Since Ajay was busy travelling, he informed Sanjay about being unable to meet IPL Commissioner, Lalit Modi. It was Sanjay who met Modi and expressed their interest to own a team. Modi and Sanjay met at a suburban five-star on Wednesday to understand the bidding process. Sanjay made it very clear that whenever the auction begins, they are ready to invest in the Ahmedabad team."
