New Delhi: Nine months after a bitter split with long-time sponsors Sahara, the BCCI on Saturday invited tenders for the sponsorship rights of the Indian team for all the Board, ICC and Asian Cricket Council events from January 2014 to March 2017.

Sahara India Parivar had in February withdrawn its sponsorship of the national cricket team and ownership of the Pune Warriors IPL franchise due to differences with the Board.

"The BCCI has published an ITT (Invitation To Tender) for Team Sponsorship Rights covering BCCI Events, ICC Events and ACC Events, for the period 1st January 2014 to 31st March 2017," Board secretary Sanjay Patel said in a statement.
