Nandini’s Sponsorship of Ireland and Scotland Cricket Teams Sparks Debate



In a move to strengthen its international presence, ‘Nandini’, the dairy brand of the Karnataka Milk Federation (KMF), has announced its decision to sponsor the cricket teams of Scotland and Ireland for the upcoming 2024 T20 World Cup.
