New Delhi: Balkrishna Industries Ltd.

BKT has already been promoting this sport by supporting the KFC Big Bash League (BBL) based on an agreement with Cricket Australia. Whether it is about cricket, football, or the amazing stunts at Monster Jam – BKT loves sport because it fully reflects its corporate philosophy: commitment and determination, the joy of achieving goals, the feeling of satisfaction and contentment when being rewarded for all efforts aiming at always higher and greater ambitions.
In particular, BKT has been supporting Indian sports, since it never forgets its origins. The company had for instance a partnership with Patna Pirates, Puneri Paltan, Tamil Thalaivas, U Mumba, Gujarat Fortune Giants, U.P Yoddha, Dabang Delhi, and Haryana Steelers Kabaddi in the 2019 season – eight out of twelve teams of the Pro Kabaddi League.
“Cricket is a very popular sport in India. Everyone loves the game, and we at BKT are unstoppable when it is about sport. We are pleased and excited to be a part of an event that is much followed in our home country. We believe in sharing values such as resolution, fair play, persistence, and self-confidence as well as the awareness of one’s limits. We are a keen supporter of several national sports all around the globe, but it fills me with immense pleasure that we are now supporting such a significant sporting event of India,” Mr Rajiv Poddar, Joint Managing Director of BKT, said.
