After Salman Khan, it is now Sanjay Dutt who wants to buy an IPL team. Dutt met IPL Chairman Lalit Modi in a hush-hush meeting at a suburban hotel yesterday to disc- uss the modalities involved. Said Dutt, "Yes, I want to buy an IPL team. I am considering the pros and cons before setting the process in motion.
After all, who doesn't want an IPL team at this point? Cricket in its shorter format has bec-ome fast-paced. I've loved the game since childhood, when I played for the school team. I want to do something for the sport." Dutt, however, said his meeting with Modi was personal. "I met Lalit yesterday, but we didn't discuss IPL. I have known Lalit since we went to neighboring schools in Sanawar."
