Indian Cricket Team New Jersey Sponsor
According to the most recent photographs, the clothing company “Killer Jeans” has apparently replaced MPL as the jersey sponsor of the Indian cricket squad.
Indian Cricket Team New Jersey Sponsor: Last year, reports emerged that MPL, the team kit, and merchandise sponsor, has conveyed its intent to transfer the rights it currently holds to another entity.
India leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal shared an image on his Instagram account sporting the new jersey alongside a host of his teammates on the eve of the first T20I against Sri Lanka.
“BCCI received an email communication from MPL sports on 2.12.2022 seeking a complete assignment (team+merchandising) at full value to Kewal Kiran Clothing Limited, a fashion wear brand, for the period from 1.12.2023 to 31.12.2023,” news agency PTI had quoted a note from BCCI as saying.

“With the upcoming back-to-back home series and the women’s away calendar. It was suggested that the current arrangement should not be hampered. As it involves performance gear for the national teams. We have asked MPL sports to continue the association at least until 31.3.2023 or look for a partial assignment. That would involve only the right chest logo but not the kit manufacturing agreement”.
An official announcement hasn’t been made.
