But Saif, in his usual style, takes it on the chin. He isn't disappointed that they lost the bid. He views it as just like a business deal and he accepts that no one can't win them all.
Saif says, "It is a business proposition that made sense to us at a certain price -- but certainly not at $370 million! And it doesn't make economic sense to us anymore."
Was bidding for the team was because he comes from a "crickey family" or because it made good business sense? Saif says candidly, It was both we love cricket. And glamour and IPL go together well -- but at a certain price only."
