Four companies — #TataGroup, #Dream11, #Byju's and #Unacademy — had bid for the title sponsorship rights for IPL 2020 after Vivo withdrew earlier this year.

In 2019, @BCCI had declared @Dream11 as the official partner for fantasy games for #IPL.
The 12-year old startup founded by @harshjain85 and @bhavitsheth had become India’s first gaming unicorn in April 2019. Its investors include Chinese giant Tencent, Kalaari Capital, private equity firm Multiples Alternate Asset Management and Steadview Capital.

#IPL has always been @Dream11' s lucky charm

For the fantasy gaming startup #Dream11, #IPL has always been its money making machine. When in 2014, Dream11 raised its first round of funding they still had just 300,000 users.
But thanks to the popularity of the @IPL, today they have over 75 million users.

In fact, after signing former Indian cricket team captain @msdhoni as their brand ambassador, just during the 2018 IPL their user base went from 20 million to 40 million.

Their initial 10 million users were dominated by Tier 1 cities but now 50% of their traffic comes from Tier 2,3 and 4 cities. Until 2019, @Dream11 claimed that its user base grew at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 230% over three years.

#coronavirus: One chart shows how dramatically the pace of #vaccinations differs from country to country

#coronavirusvaccine: Epidemiologists have estimated that countries will need to vaccinate around 75% of their populations to reach #herdimmunity - the threshold beyond which the #coronavirus can no longer spread easily from person to person.
For many nations, that's a far-off goal. At the current rate of 110,000 vaccinations per day, it could take Japan eight months to immunize just a quarter of its population, and more than two years to immunize 75%.
