For the First time in History of Test Match Cricket Team India will have a bigger Logo in their White Jerseys because of the financial Reasons for BCCI. Although the norms that the jersey should be predominantly white will remain the same, it will have a new sponsor’s logo. The sponsors like BYJU’S have paid extra money to make sure that their logo size is large on the Indian jersey.Teams like WestIndies had a habit of Big logo in their Test Jerseys , but due to this pandemic reason Team India also moved to this kind of situation .
What is BIG CHANGE in Jersey and Why?
.Team India’s new kit sponsors MPL sports have signed a three-year deal with BCCI that they will be Team India’s merchandise and kit sponsor and their logo will also be featured on team India’s jersey. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the cricket boards have suffered huge losses as there has been very little international cricket in 2020.
Because of these financial reasons , ICC allowed the sponsors to pay some extra money in order to get their logo size bigger on the jersey of the cricket teams. This extra money will also help the boards compensate for their losses. Thus, BYJU’S and MPL Sports will be the two major sponsors for team India and will have their logos on the New Test jersey which was the BIG change in the upcoming Border Gavaskar Trophy.Also , if you notice previous jersey sponsors like Sahara, Star, Oppo even Byjus in New Zealand Series logo will be very smaller on their left side in small size which will be in left side of the Jersey. But the logo here will be bigger in size with MPL and Byjus on the Team Jerseys.
Also , India A have already made the use of that jersey during the practice game against Australia A.
