Mallya 'intends to attend' all Team India Champions Trophy matches

Renowned cricket presenter Alan Wilkins was the master of the ceremony at the event glorified by the presence of the iconic Sachin Tendulkar, and Team India's Yuvraj Singh, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and others playing in the ongoing ICC Champions Trophy tournament in England. But normally what happens at the charity dinner is that someone who has bought a table is entitled to invite his guests.

Mallya, who is now taking refuge in England had watched the high-octane India vs Pakistan clash on Sunday, being played at Edgbaston.

Well, Mallya recently tweeted that he will also attend India-Sri Lanka and South Africa later in the week.

Sources told TOI that his presence made the Indian team uncomfortable enough to leave a bit early.

Mallya 'intends to attend' all Team India Champions Trophy matches

Former owner of Kohli's Indian Premier League franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) Mallya is now out on bail in London despite being wanted in India.

Mallya, who has been declared an absconder in India after defaulting on bank loans worth Rs 9,000 crore, left the entire Indian team and officials embarrassed after landing at the charity dinner.

According to a BCCI source, due to Mallya's presence, Kohli and the Indian team were "uncomfortable". "They can not ask him to leave or turn their back on him if he wants to have a conversation". In a photo which was shared widely on social media, the fugitive businessman was spotted with Indian batting legend Sunil Gavaskar. Of the many known faces in attendance, Mallya's face stood out as he sat in the VIP enclosure and enjoyed the proceedings.

The troubled financier, who co-owns Formula One team Force India, was arrested in London in April following an extradition request from India and granted bail.
