I don't know what TVS stands for but the second answer may help you:

The game is sponsored by TVS motor company.

Let's guess: Truck Van Service? lol

I don't think TVS is an abbreviation of something. Just like G.net or E-tech ....

Thank you Arnab.

I have viewed the website with keen interest. It appears TVS is managed by smart and progressive people.

How much more ineptitude can come out of one place? When ordinary morons are kings, there is no way out.

The winning team of the TVS Cup in Dhaka will have nothing more than a trophy to show for their efforts. Mahbubul Anam, advisor of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) and chairman of their cricket committee, has announced that there will be no prizemoney for the winner and the runners-up.
Talking to The Daily Star, Mahbubul stated that TVS had only agreed to sponsor the Man-of-the-Match and the Man-of-the-Series awards. ESPN-Star Sports have signed a five-year contract with the BCB worth US$11.75 million, and are the sponsors of this tournament.

Mahbubul’s announcement comes in the wake of a report in The Statesman, which stated that the BCB had no idea about the total prizemoney of the TVS Cup, or the profits that the board would make out of the tournament.

The report also pointed out the shocking ineptitude of the BCB in signing a contract which ensured that the financial benefits from the tournament would mostly go to ESPN-Star Sports. A Bangladesh board official revealed that the BCB had agreed to certain clauses in their deal which ensured that revenues from advertising hoardings would go solely to ESPN-Star.

The newspaper also reported Ali Asghar Loby, the BCB chief executive, as admitting to the fact that he had overlooked the clauses in question when signing the deal. He, however, promised to learn from this experience: “We’ll be wiser next time.”

Smells fishy. Lobi probably made a fortune off this deal.

Get rid of this board, and bring back the elected officials.

Or, bring back Saber Hossain Chowdhury to run the board.

This is getting ridiculous. Lobi has shown his incompetence every step of the way.

"Next time I won't make the same mistake"!!! What the hell?!?!? You shouldn't be making that mistake every, you goddamn idiot. This guy's got $hit for brains.

And this investigative committee cannot recommend his dismissal?

Why the hell not?
