The Glazers family has been desperate to enter the Indian cricket market for a long time. Earlier last year they tried hard to get their hands on buying an IPL team but eventually fell short of CVC who owns Gujarat Titans and RPSG who owns Lucknow Super Giants. The Glazers family then tried their hands at the Inaugral WIPL, which also comes as a defeat to them.

Indian cricket is one of the most lucrative markets in the Sporting World. With all the fame, glitter, and mind-boggling sponsor and broadcasting deals, the American business family is desperate to enter the scene. Given that the Glazers family faces constant backlash from Manchester United owners for not properly promoting the club and pocketing millions of cash every quarter, an entry into the Indian cricket scene would have served as a complete sports wash to their image.

However, the Glazers family does have a team in the cricketing world. The Lancer Capital-owned Desert Vipers currently play in the ongoing ILT20 league. As for the WIPL is concerned, the Glazers family tried their best to be one of the 5 teams that will take part in the inaugural WIPL tournament.

“Having bought into the ILT20, it is natural for us to look into other cricket opportunities around the world, including Women’s IPL,” Phil Oliver, the CEO of Desert Vipers, said after owing the ILT20 side.
