Gupta, however, declined to comment on how much revenue MSM is planning to mop up from the event that will be telecast on Max.
As had been reported earlier by, Videocon and Vodafone are co-presenting sponsors. The other associate sponsors are Pepsi, LG, Samsung and Hyundai.

A co-presenter will consume between 18-22 10 second spots per match while an associate sponsor will take away 12-16 spots.
Gupta adds that several companies have taken spot buys where the rate has crossed Rs 500,000. These include Coca Cola, TVS, Spice Mobile and GM.

For its Extraa Innings wraparound show, the broadcaster has roped in Samsung, Cadila, Whirlpool and Raymonds as sponsors.
