On Sunday the former Kingfisher baron was spotted at Birmingham Cricket Ground during the India Pakistan Champions Trophy clash
Members of the Indian cricket team reportedly avoided absconding liquor baron Vijay Mallya during a charity ball organised by Virat Kohli's foundation in London for the Justice and Care organisation. A BCCI official told PTI, "Look, Virat or his foundation never invited Mallya at the function. I intend to attend all games to cheer the India team", Mallya tweeted today morning. But typically what happens at the charity dinner is that someone who has bought a table is entitled to invite his guests.
Indian coach Anil Kumble along with Sachin Tendulkar was also present at the event. Unperturbed by the criticism over his presence at the India-Pakistan match, Mallya has tweeted that he would attend all matches played by India.
Not just that, but his presence compels the Indian team to leave early so that they don't run into him at the function. Vijay Mallya is also the ex owner of Royal Challengers Bangalore and Virat Kohli was the captain. Kohli who is carrying the baton of fitness in the Indian team decided against extending his contract due to his fitness regime. "And nearly everyone, except our captain who was host of the event, left the scene", a senior BCCI official told DNA.
Indian Cricketers have received a big shock in London where they are playing ongoing champion trophy.
